You can calculate how much concrete you need for your construction project using this calculator that works in both US Customary Units (feet and inches) and International System of Units or metric units (meters and centimeters) of measurement.
Most concrete purchases will be made in cubic yards, which equates to 27 cubic feet. For example, a project measuring 10 ft in length by 10 ft in width with a depth of 3.5 in will be just over 1 cubic yard. The equivalent to a single cubic yard in metric measurements would be roughly 0.76 cubic meters.
The output of this calculation should make it simple for you to work out the estimated cost of the concrete materials that you require. For more specific pricing, contact your CEMEX sales representative to discuss.
There’s rarely a perfect pour in any project, so you may consider adding a little extra contingency to your order to account just to be on the safe side. The amount you decide to order will depend on the size and complexity of your site and project. It’s also important to know how this will affect your overall budget.
The concrete calculator should help you get started on the planning phase of your project. Be sure to discuss with your sales rep when you are ready to order your concrete.
