Concreters will mix cement, gravel, sand and water to make concrete on site and will move concrete into position using a concrete pump. They will place concrete into the formwork (usually temporary wood or steel moulds), ensuring it is spread and levelled, then compacted and operate paving and trowelling machines to float, trowel and polish the concrete surface. They will create different surface textures by tamping, smoothing and shaping the concrete surface with a variety of hand tools and will cut joints into hardened concrete. They will mix and apply pigments when a coloured surface is required and also dig foundation trenches if working on residential or small commercial projects.
