Concrete mix designs are adaptable to different regions, able to make use of available materials for course aggregates and other ingredients. Concrete also requires a relatively low transport time in order to avoid solidification. Therefore, its use in construction minimizes transportation costs and related energy consumption. Choosing concrete supports local economies by requiring nearby companies for transport and placement, and by making use of regional materials.
