Landrieu Concrete’s Ready-mix Concrete
Ready-mix Concrete is manufactured in all of Landrieu Concrete’s Batch Plants according to its customers pre-- set recipes, and then delivered to a worksite where it is deployed. Landrieu Concrete produces precise concrete mixtures to be deployed to commercial and residential construction sites.
Grout Grout is typically a mixture of hydraulic cement and water, with or without fine aggregate; however, chemical grouts are also produced. Cementious grouts are used to fill voids and cracks in pavements, building and dam foundations, and brick and concrete masonry wall assemblies; to construct floor toppings or provide flooring underlayment; to place ceramictile; and to bind preplaced-aggregate concrete.
Backfilling A non-structural concrete used to prepare a surface to receive structural concrete, to fill excavated pockets in rocks, or to correct over-excavation.
Landrieu Concrete Strengths
Equipment Landrieu Concrete has a substantial and growing fleet consisting of Concrete Pumps, Static Pumps, Placing Booms, Cement Bulkers, Truck-trailers, Diesel & Water Tankers. Our fleet strength is closely matched to meet our growing customer production targets. Maintenance on all Landrieu Concrete equipment is strictly planned and executed, to ensure the reliability of our assets performance. Landrieu Concrete even has several Concrete Pumps in it's fleet with a boom reach of 150 feet. This is very uncommon in most other concrete producer's fleets. These pumps are particularly useful on sites where reach is a big problem.
Systems Landrieu Concrete uses an "Operations and Fleet Management System" to control the optimal planning and execution on all daily concrete production, delivery and pumping programs. The system uses GPS and Wi-Fi networks to enable the live Visualization all operations covering the entire Supply Process, from Concrete Batching to the on-site arrival of trucks and Concrete Pumping. All potential logistical and quality issues are foreseen by this system, allowing pre-emptive action to be taken. The system automatically re-plans the supply schedules for supplies that may get behind schedule for whatever reason, to restore the status to the original plan, by allocating more resources and reducing the truck supply interval as required. In summary, it is an interactive logical system, which makes a highly dynamic and complex process, into a user friendly one which is easy to manage, and highly efficient on the use of productive resources.

Concrete is perishable in its plastic state and very “sensitive” from the time the raw materials are combined to the final product. Mixing, transportation, placing and curing can influence its plastic and hardened properties. This is why Landrieu Concrete places great emphasis on quality by expanding the parameters of its concrete quality management model from quality control to quality assurance. This we will achieve by teamwork, promptness of service, flexibility and the assurance of customer satisfaction.

Batching Plant Processing and Testing Landrieu Concrete produces a wide variety of mix designs for different construction needs and conditions. Mix designs are prepared in accordance with the international standards by our in house qualified Technical Engineers and verified and tested thoroughly to yield optimal performance before final approval by the client. Custom mix designs can also be developed based on customer requirements. The approved mix designs are fed in the computers of the fully automatic computerized batching plants at our production yards. Landrieu Concrete has comprehensive on-site laboratories at plant to monitor the quality of raw materials and the performance of mix designs to assure that concrete meets and exceeds specifications. These laboratories are fully equipped to carry out a wide range of aggregate and concrete tests. Raw materials and Concrete performances are monitored through a regimented daily sampling program.. We have a thorough system of quality control in place at all our batching plants. This helps us to identify, document and correct most problems before they reach the site. These procedures are also extended to the calibration and maintenance of all our batching and testing equipments. The batching plants are calibrated semi annually and all the equipments used in the laboratories are calibrated on a regular basis by an independent certified laboratory as per ASTM Standard requirements and calibration certificates are always available for review. The methods used in the calibration of all equipments are traceable to national/international standards. Trial mixes are also conducted in the labs to verify that the clients and consultants specification requirements are achieved. Before any transit mixer with a load of fresh concrete leaves the plant it is inspected by the lab technicians for workability and temperature. All test results are logged into the computer for statistical analysis and records are kept in the laboratory for review. In addition to the plant testing, samples are also taken at site for workability, temperature and strength testing in accordance with the client’s requirements.
