CCP utilizes an automated concrete batching system that includes underground storage bins for sand and stone whereby a traveling material hopper collects and delivers these materials to a two cubic-yard horizontal shaft paddle mixer via cable driven hoist. These materials are delivered to the mixer simultaneously with cement delivered via screw-augers from large cement silos. Lastly, water and admixtures are injected into the mixer before the batching process begins. At maximum production the batch plant can produce a two cubic-yard batch every 6 minutes. Forklifts are used to transport large concrete buckets to the various production areas.
