Concrete mixing in Thailand

Mixing concrete on the ground – Thailand-style

This is a bit long, but we have never seen the rock added into the concrete mix in this way.

Concrete strength and quality requires consistent mixing and measured recipes… Do you see this here?

Near the end of the video we see some modern equipment (tractor and trailer) on the job site, so they do have some equipment resources. It appears that they need some mixing equipment resources as well. Thank goodness they are just pouring a sidewalk.

It does make you wonder how they produced the foundation and the walls, although.

The need for a functioning concrete supply chain is evident in every developing nation, including Thailand.
