FAQ About Commercial Concrete Driveways

For most commercial applications, a concrete thickness of 150mm is common. This thickness is usually sufficient to handle a variety of vehicles, including light to medium trucks. In cases where the driveway will be used by heavier vehicles, such as large trucks or heavy machinery, the recommended thickness can increase to 200mm or more.

In Australia, the specifications for commercial concrete driveways can vary based on local council requirements, the specific use of the driveway, and the expected traffic load.

However, there are general guidelines and standards that are commonly followed.

Here are some key specifications to consider:

  1. Thickness: As previously mentioned, the thickness of a commercial concrete driveway typically ranges from 150mm to 200mm, but this can vary based on the expected load and usage.

  2. Concrete Mix: The strength of the concrete mix is crucial. For commercial driveways, a mix with a compressive strength of at least 32 MPa (megapascals) is commonly used. However, higher strength mixes might be required for heavier loads.

  3. Reinforcement: Reinforcement using steel bars (rebar) or wire mesh is often necessary to provide additional strength and help prevent cracking. The type and amount of reinforcement will depend on the load requirements and the design of the driveway.

  4. Subgrade Preparation: Proper preparation of the subgrade is essential for the longevity of the driveway. This includes ensuring adequate drainage, proper compaction, and a suitable base material.

  5. Joints: Control joints and expansion joints are necessary to manage the natural expansion and contraction of the concrete due to temperature changes, thereby reducing the risk of uncontrolled cracking.

  6. Surface Finish: The surface finish should provide adequate traction. Options include broom finishing, exposed aggregate, or stamped concrete for aesthetic appeal.

  7. Drainage: Adequate drainage is crucial to prevent water accumulation, which can weaken the driveway and lead to damage. This might involve grading the driveway properly and installing drainage systems.

  8. Curing: Proper curing of the concrete is essential for achieving the desired strength and durability. This typically involves keeping the concrete moist for a certain period after pouring.

  9. Local Regulations and Standards: It’s important to adhere to any local building codes and Australian Standards (like AS 3727-1993 for residential pavements, which might also be referenced for commercial driveways in some aspects).

  • Durability: Concrete is known for its strength and longevity, making it ideal for handling heavy traffic and varying weather conditions in Melbourne.
  • Low Maintenance: Concrete driveways require minimal upkeep compared to other materials.
  • Customization: Concrete can be colored, stamped, or textured to enhance aesthetic appeal.
  • Reflectivity: Light-colored concrete can reflect more sunlight, reducing the heat island effect in urban areas.

The cost can vary widely depending on factors like the size of the driveway, thickness of the concrete, reinforcement requirements, and any custom designs or finishes. Prices generally range from $50 to $150 per square meter, but it’s best to contact us get a current, detailed quote.

The time frame can vary based on the project’s complexity and size. Generally, it might take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. This includes preparation, pouring the concrete, and curing time.

Regular cleaning and periodic resealing are recommended. It’s also important to repair any cracks or damage promptly to prevent worsening.

I can highly recommend Smooth Concrete, and, in particular Luke who owns the business. Our customer ( one of Australia's top 5 commercial property owners) had very strict rules and documentation regarding access to the site plus a very limited window of opportunity during each week to get the job completed. In trying to meet the customer's requirements the job had to be postponed several times (with only a day's notice on occasion) but Luke was tremendous in being able to accomodate all these last minute changes. He was totally professional in the way he re arranged things to suit our customer. When we finally got everything lined up to start the job the weather became threat however Luke and his team were able to get the job done way quicker than expected thus avoiding any weather issues. Also, on the day Luke's team found an issue with some broken kerb and called immediately suggesting we replace it. We got great feedback from that initiative. In addition the customer was extremely pleased with the quality of the job and the way in which the Smooth Concrete team conducted themselves. Bob Dusting Proprietor Viscount Property Services

As an architect I am always looking not for great tradespeople but outstanding ones and Smooth Concrete did not disappoint. We had a very difficult project that required enormous coordination and a finish no less than excellent and Smooth Concrete delivered. Luke was a pleasure to deal with and no request was too difficult. Not only was i impressed but the client was overwhelmed. Cant wait to work with the team again and to explore all of the other skills and services they can provide. I would highly recommend them for any project requiring a high quality finish.

I highly recommend Smooth Concrete. Luke was very quick to contact me after my online enquiry to have old concrete removed from my backyard and new concrete for an outdoor entertaining area. He was very easy to discuss this with to plan it out and make suggestions that would help me save on the overall cost. Luke and his team were very efficient and kept the place clean. They did a great job!! Very happy. Thank you.

STUNNING OUTCOME Luke and his Smooth Concrete team did an amazing job at our house. We had a badly lifting patio that required levelling. Luke and I discussed the plan I had in mind and he confidently provided feedback which made me comfortable in proceeding with the project. Luke was friendly and offered a creative solution to our problem. Luke’s team then efficiently and professionally completed the required work. What made this such a stunning job was Luke mentoring and providing guidance to his team. This detail alone lifted the project from ‘just a job to be done’ to ‘a complete and professional product.’ A team that cares about their work seems rare in this day and age but Luke took the time to pass on his knowledge. Top marks. A tremendous result that far exceeded our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Luke and his team for any concreting work that needs to be carried out
Smooth Concrete were awesome ! Not only were they professional, hardworking and thorough, they were also friendly. Luke explained the process of the job very clearly to us and went above and beyond to meet our expectations. Luke also gave us a suggestion to add glow stone which we did and looks awesome at night. We would recommend them for any job as they were reliable and generous with time and skill. Thanks again Smooth Concrete
