Perfect for heavy construction waste that would not be suitable for a skip. Also ideal for locations where a skip is just not practical to have on the ground.

Construction aggregate is a range of materials, including sand, topsoil, recycled concrete, ballast and crushed stone. All of which are used in the construction process throughout Faringdon, and are some of the most mined materials worldwide. It is commonly used as a mixer with cement in order to create concrete.
They are usually placed into two categories: Fine Aggregate and Coarse Aggregate.
It all depends on the size of the area you’re covering, and how much you actually need. On average the cost of aggregate for one square metre ranges from £80 to £210. However, please keep in mind that this is just an estimate, each project in location is unique and will require a different addition of costs.

The amount of aggregate needed depends on the materials you desire and the area you want to be covered. There are aggregate calculators available online, both manual and electronic, but if you have the measurements of the area you want to cover, and are based in Faringdon or surrounding areas, we can provide you with the quote you need.
Yes. With quarried aggregates constantly rising in cost, many businesses are looking for cheaper alternatives. Recycled standards are improving with the investment into new recycling technologies, and companies can now provide high quality recycled aggregates in Faringdon, with multiple benefits. In fact, these alternatives are becoming more favourable with clients and customers throughout Faringdon.
Materials that are smoother, such as natural sands and crushed stone, tend to be preferable for mixing concrete. We would recommend these as well as gravel, which is all highly acceptable for making top quality concrete.
In general, the chosen materials for concrete mixing will need to be clean, hard and free of absorbed chemicals. There has also been a success with recycling old concrete, crushed to the size needed for concrete aggregate.
Aggregate needs to be strong, hard, durable and free from anything that could compromise the quality. If the aggregate is flaky and contains elongated pieces, it needs to be avoided. Many important qualities of the aggregate can depend upon its physical aspects and the aspects of the original rock.
At SCB Oxford, we ensure all aggregates used for clients are of the highest possible quality, whether they’re recycled or brand new.
Without aggregates you would lose 60-80% of your concrete’s volume and the thermal, strength and elastic properties. In fact, you wouldn’t be able to make concrete without aggregates such as gravel and sand.
Aggregates aren’t only restricted to concrete, they are also used in the construction of roads, railroads and even foundations. It is a base factor for many building projects and even small housing projects in Faringdon.
For coarse materials, the aggregate crushing test is used to determine the resistance of a certain aggregate. This is done through a gradually applied compressive load and is a numerical indicator of the aggregate’s strength.
Aggregates are generally chosen for their resilience, regardless of the type of material. But this is usually not a factor to consider, except when working with lightweight and high strength concrete.
