About concrete 

Concrete, the most widely used construction material in the world today, consists of cement, stone, sand and water, sometimes with other additions. Combined in the correct proportions, and placed in the right way, the look of the finished product is limited only by the imagination. With it, designers unite function and beauty to form dramatic statements that can be enjoyed for many years.

Over the years it has proved to be a strong and versatile material, providing durability, insulation and small need for maintenance.

Architects, engineers and artists alike use it in buildings, bridges, foundations, dams, water towers and even sculpture. One huge advantage is that it can be moulded into almost any desired shape.
