Ready Mix & Precast Concrete
Tulloch Developments provides an established ready mix concrete service, available to the Shetland public, using our fleet of specialised trucks. Our concrete is quality assured to BS8500 and we import what's probably the best aggregate in Europe from the Glensanda Quarry on the west coast of Scotland.
During the construction of the Blacksness Pier, Tulloch Developments purchased a state-of-the-art "Reimer R9" mobile batching plant. Since then, we have produced our own concrete, frequently investing in new and better equipment to enable us to offer the highest quality of service.
Our new 'volumetric' mixers are similar to site batching plants, except that they are mobile. This offers considerable advantages over more conventional ready mix vehicles. Volumetric mixers carry all the ingredients for concrete in different hoppers, and these materials are fed by the main drive belt to the mixing area. This allows us to mix up to 9 cubic metres of fresh concrete on site, to any mix design, with no waste. For larger jobs, the concrete can be brought to the site and loaded into the hoppers to allow continuous concrete supply.
The mix design can also be changed instantly, producing different types of concrete from the same load. This allows us to always provide a 'fresh mix', which improves workability. It also lets us offer multiple deliveries from a single load, reducing the time our vehicles are on the road, with obvious benefits to the environment.
Tulloch Developments is also the only contractor in Shetland to offer a concrete pumping service. With a 16m boom, our concrete pump is ideal for placing concrete in house founds, slabs or walls; we can pump concrete into confined spaces such as basements. The pump offers a very competitive option for your concrete placement needs.
At Tulloch Developments we are happy to negotiate prices for larger quantities of concrete, and we can offer discounts if we supply you with ready mix concrete and concrete blocks.

Since early 2008, when we invested in a new, state-of-the-art, concrete precast pressing machine, Tulloch Developments has been supplying concrete building blocks and other products. The Poyatos Prima P50 is a fully automated concrete precast machine.
We have a selection of different moulds to cater for your various needs. Once the concrete products have been formed and placed on pallets, they are left to cure inside our warehouse in Lerwick. This keeps them protected from the weather, making for a higher quality product.
The concrete mixes we use are all based on a C15 mix, which makes our products stronger than most competitors’. Other products include cut face blocks, mono blocks for paving and hollow blocks. For further information and competitive price, please contact us.
Tulloch Developments operate 2 No Schwing mobile truck mounted concrete pumps. Both these pumps have 24mtr reach and also carry additional steel and rubber hoses to for further reach. Concrete pumping is the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way for placement of concrete.
