Concrete Block Business Case

Potential Profit £67,800 Per Month

We have written this concrete block business case to give you some ideas of how you can sell your concrete. We have also written a business case for interlocking blocks.

Many of our customers manufacture 100mm and 140mm concrete blocks for house building using our C1200 or C1800 concrete batching plant.

Business Case

A block laying machine can produce 22,600 blocks per day. This is based on laying 36 number 100mm x 215 x 440mm blocks every 40 seconds.

Mix Design

A typical block mix is below. Mixes can be designed with recycled material that will reduce input costs a little.

46% 10-6mm aggregate
47% Stone dust/sand
8% OPC Cement

The cost of this mix using a C1200 or C1800 batching plant is £60 m3 subject to local prices. See our analysis below.

1 m3 of concrete will produce 100 number 100mm x 215mm x 440mm blocks giving a production cost of 60p each
