Those prices are nuts. Concrete in Central Texas is 85 a yard delivered and yes that is a cubic yard

If this is inside a building, I would rent a few of those big fans to pull the heat out. That much concrete will heat up that building very quickly and you will be rushing the finishing of the last part. I think I would get a pump too. You can place that a lot easier 40 feet away with a pump.

1200 sqr ft for the building slab is only 15 yards. Pump rental probably be 600 minimum. Not worth is for 15 yards , IMO. Apron can be poured right out of the truck. 45 years in the biz.

Both pours can be poured right out the trucks. Building is 7k sq ft tons of room wide open. Pour is right next to door

I just had a 30X30 slab poured for a building. 12"x12" footer with 2 pieces of rebar, 6" foundation, moisture barrier, and finished surface was $3600. No digging out was required. Just digging the footer....

Tampa Bay area.

I called around last week and prices have gone up in Texas due to pot ash. Just over $100 cubic yard 3,000psi with no fiber. About $1,200 for 10 yards delivered if you have forms and finishing taken care of. Not cheap anymore.

4" thick enough? If you're driving on it, you may break the edges off.

WWM doesn't add strength, it just helps control thermal expansion and contraction.

Im fairly close to you and a contractor. Concrete is about 130 cu yd now. Labor to place concrete is about 100 yd. Hard to say on the forming and digging, would depend on if dirt can be removed with a machine and if you wanted it hauled offsite.

Pumps must be rare in Ohio. They are less than $200 here and the last time I got one ( a few years ago) was more like $100

not rare, just large. Mostly you see boom pumps. You must have small trailer pumps that you can rent?.. Sounds like non issue as OP says trucks can back right up to it.

I’m paying $127 a yard for 5k mix with fiber and super P, pour 25-30 yards a week precast. Generally in my area you can double the price per yard to figure labor and you’ll be real close on a standard pour.

With forming for a standard level ground monolithic pour. May be different in your area but that’s pretty standard here. I built a 24x48 shop last year with 6” footers and an 8” drop down for carport. Had to bring in 8 loads of fill and do it in 2 pours. I was around 150% on that one.

Thank goodness, EMC; I know we hillbillies in TN are backwards, but my heart fluttered when I saw your price.

With A1, maschmeyer, or prestige I am at around 110 plus environmental, fuel, fiber.. Etc. I figure after tax it is 125. This is in the Orlando area. I wish I were a big dog where I could get it for 80 like the guys say on here. I press the shit out of the salesfolks for better pricing but this is where they all consistently settle. With firm and pour I tell my customers to expect 5 to 6 per foot depending on prep needed.
