S. D. Ireland Concrete was founded in 1974 with a batch plant on Grove Street, Burlington, VT. With the acquisition of the S.T. Griswold Company and its associated facilities in 2009, S.D. Ireland created the strategic opportunity to expand its services regionally and expand our ready mix concrete operations. We now operate from six locations around Northern and Central Vermont to supply high quality ready mix concrete.
With our state of the art computerized batching facilities, S. D. Ireland can ship concrete to your project with our fleet of more than 50 concrete mixers. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality concrete for your project based on the contract specifications.
Our ready mix concrete is a mixture of cement, water, and aggregates. The most important element of the mix is cement which acts as a binder and creates concretes resistance. Aggregates such as sand, gravel, and crushed stones make up roughly 60 to 70 percent of the mix increase concrete’s durability or shorten its setting time. Water is a critical part of the mix. It sets off a chemical reaction when it comes in contact with the cement. Lastly, solid or liquid additives are introduced to ready mix concrete before or during preparation. These increase concrete’s durability or shorten its setting time.
Our quality control personnel will provide you with the precise type and strength of mix you need.
