While Western Concrete Ltd. is based upon the delivery of ready-mixed concrete, please see our Products page for a list of available inventory, including admixtures to help you get the most out of your concrete.
Our technicians are willing to travel (depending on availability and advance notice) to you onsite and advise as to the requirements of your concrete installation, volumes, construction and formwork considerations, access issues, type of mix, and foundation assessments.
Multiple Mix Designs
Depending on your construction requirements and the eventual usage and application of your concrete structure, you may want to assess the merits of various concrete mixes based on economy, performance, longevity, safety and appearance. Our technical specialists will work with you to select the optimum mix design for your project.
All Mixes CSA Approved
Western Concrete is a member of the B.C. Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, and as such, adheres to all CSA standards with respect to concrete production equipment, computerized batch plant technology and machinery maintenance.

Eleven and Eight Metre Trucks
Western Concrete Ltd. has a fleet with a variety of eleven and eight metre trucks that allows us the flexibility and versatility to meet the demands of our commercial, agricultural, and residential customers.
Some things to keep in mind when ordering concrete.
Concrete quantities (volumes) are measured in cubic metres (m3).
Calculated by multiplying length x width x height (or depth). For example: If a foundation measures 5m x 6m and the depth of the concrete floor is to be 150mm, the volume will be 4.5 meters.
When calculating, mix inches with feet and/or millimetres with metres, but don’t mix them up! Use our Volume Calculator.
To convert cubic yards to cubic metres – multiply by 0.765
To convert cubic feet to cubic metres – multiply by 0.028

Pump Service Available
Western Concrete produces concrete and does not employ a full-time complement of concrete pumping crews. We are more than happy to connect you to a third party concrete pumping resource.
