A civil engineer we nearly employed priced in the concrete at 320-euro a square meter. We went to a local friend who is very savvy on all these matters and he told us the price should be betwen 62-65-euro a square meter. We went to our local cement works and were given a price of 63-euro. The ‘pump’ would be extra; although because we found a link with the cement works owner this extra was waived. The reinforcement metal was extra but also by many degrees a lower price than the rip-off merchant we first encountered.
T.C.P. a slab depth of 100mm (10cm/0.1m) 1cu/m will cover a 10sq/m area.
Minimum recommended depth for a driveway is 100mm and for patios and paths 75mm.
Increasing the driveway depth (and therefore cost) by 20% to 120mm will increase the load bearing capacity by around 50%.
