The development of commercial service in deliver- ing ready-mixed concrete in urban centers has repre- sented one of the significant advances in building practice during the last 15 years. The industry has pioneered in introducing more accurate control methods; these refinements now enable small jobs to se- cure as reliable control of the concrete used as is available on large jobs. The advances in quality of ready-mixed concrete have influenced improvements in the production of all other concrete used in a community. Ready-mixed concrete offers to the building trade a service which has proven helpful in con- venience, speed, ability to handle winter work, and in other respects. The way toward further improvements in concreting practices has been pointed out by this infant in the building field.
