We are pleased to announce that Earth Friendly Concrete® is now available to the northern Brisbane and Sunshine Coast regions with the upgrade of our Narangba and Coolum batch plants.
The batch plants, which have a proud history of supplying Wagners concrete to northern Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, now have ultra-low-carbon Earth Friendly Concrete® available to order.
The batch plants are conveniently located to deliver concrete to the active construction markets in northern Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and meet the growing demand for low-carbon concrete. Already Wagners’ Narangba batch plant has begun supplying Earth Friendly Concrete® for pre-cast bridge girders to the Tweed Shire Council and a new two-storey building for Kallangur State School.
What is unique about our low-carbon concrete offering is that it contains zero cement, which makes it the lowest embodied carbon concrete available. Impressively, the structural and durability properties are better than traditional concrete.
This has a substantial positive impact because the built environment contributes significantly to global carbon emissions, with cement accounting for an estimated 8%. By making zero-cement concrete more widely available, Wagners is helping to lead the way to decarbonisation. This is supported by progressive asset owners, specifiers, and builders who have started to migrate away from what has been the norm for hundreds of years.
Wagners Chief Operating Officer, Anthony Freer said, “We are committed to the future growth of Earth Friendly Concrete® as we develop infrastructure to increase our supply capabilities. We are pleased that this dual capability will now give us the flexibility to offer our customers traditional concrete as well as an environmentally friendly alternative. Earth Friendly Concrete® contains 70% less embodied carbon than traditional concrete.”
