Reason Africans Should Not Buy Cement In Bulk

Published

By

In construction of building projects, the procurement of materials plays a crucial role in ensuring the success and longevity of the endeavor. Cement, a fundamental component in building structures, is often purchased in bulk to streamline operations and reduce costs. However, there are significant drawbacks to this approach that warrant careful consideration.

Here are two compelling reasons why buying cement in bulk may not be the most prudent decision:

Expiry Date and Hardening

Unlike fine wine, cement does not improve with age. In fact, it has an expiry date and tends to harden over time, rendering it less effective for use in construction.

By purchasing cement in bulk, there is a risk of it sitting unused for extended periods, ultimately diminishing its quality and usability. This can lead to wasted resources and compromised structural integrity if expired or hardened cement is unwittingly incorporated into the building process.

Vulnerability to Theft and Misuse

Cement has a notorious reputation for growing “legs” on construction sites, metaphorically speaking. In other words, it is prone to theft or unauthorized use, often referred to as the builder’s ATM (Automated Teller Machine). When stored in large quantities, cement becomes a tempting target for pilferage, potentially resulting in financial losses for the project. Additionally, unmonitored access to bulk cement can lead to excessive usage or misallocation, further exacerbating budgetary concerns.

Given these challenges, it is advisable to adopt a more strategic approach to cement procurement:

Purchase Only What You Need:

Instead of buying cement in bulk, assess the immediate requirements of your project and procure accordingly. By avoiding excessive stockpiling, you can minimize the risk of wastage and ensure that the cement remains fresh and usable.

Maintain Vigilance and Oversight

Keep a vigilant eye on the storage and usage of cement on the construction site. Implement security measures to deter theft and unauthorized access, such as locked storage containers or surveillance cameras. Additionally, designate responsible individuals to monitor inventory levels and track cement usage to prevent misuse or pilferage.

As the allure of bulk purchasing may seem appealing from a cost-saving perspective, the inherent risks associated with expired or pilfered cement outweigh the potential benefits. By prioritizing timely procurement and diligent oversight, construction professionals can safeguard both the integrity of their projects and the efficiency of their resources. Remember, when it comes to cement, quality and accountability are paramount.
