NOTES TO THE CONCRETE MIX DESIGN

Concrete Aggregates:

River sand from Malindi


6-10mm Course Aggregates from Mwache Quarry / Jaribuni Quarry
14-20mm Course Aggregates from Mwache Quarry / Jaribuni Quarry

Batching:

Concrete shall be batched by weight using a 3.0 m3 capacity car mixer.

Testing of Concrete Cubes:

Concrete cubes shall be tested and witnessed by the Client in the Contractors own laboratory located within KPA,
Mombasa.
