Over the past number of years Mark has collaborated with us on a number of technically challenging concrete projects in the mining, petrochemical and defence aviation sectors.
Many times the intended performance requirements were not clearly indicated in the project specifications and the prescriptive requirements conflicted with the intended performance. In resolving these issues, Mark’s collaborative approach was evidenced in working with us and our customers in developing fit-for-purpose concrete mix designs that met with the functional requirements for the hardened concrete whilst optimising value for money outcomes for our customers.
In addition, Mark has assisted us in relation to the subjects of source material selection, autogenous healing of concrete, defects investigation, mass concrete pours and thermal control plans, construction methodologies, concrete batch plant establishments and finishing & curing techniques.
We greatly value his opinion on a range of matters — an opinion underpinned by over 28 years’ experience in the Australian and South African construction industries — and his ability to provide timely, objective and robust technical advice that stands up to scrutiny and counter argument, and protects our interests.
His considerate and likable persona fosters excellent and trusting relationships with clients and his colleagues and peers alike.
We look forward to working with him again in the future.

Quality of products and services are integral components of Monier’s offer to clients and customers and has resulted in Monier being the supplier of choice for projects with more technically complex concrete specifications.
Since 2010 Technicrete has provided Monier with concrete sciences and technology consulting services that have directly contributed to Monier’s capability to supply conforming products and influenced clients to use Monier products and services.
Technicrete provide ongoing technical support to Monier in the form of specification reviews, readymix concrete mix designs and quality control analysis and reporting.
Technicrete’s professional advice and services has allowed Monier to successfully supply highly specified readymix concrete to high profile and prestigious projects such as Grand Papua Hotel, Waterfront Retail and Commercial Precinct, EXXON Permanent Offices and Facilities, Kumul Overpass and the Stanley Hotel.
Technicrete provide regular technical services on time without prompting and react to specific requests for professional advice in a timely, efficient and effective manner.”
My company appointed Technicrete Pty Ltd as consultants in 2012 to assist us in providing a mix design for the Lae Wharf. We had a large contract with PNG Ports Corporation Ltd to extend the overseas berth by 130m and this involved about 4,300 cubic meters of marine grade concrete.
Mark Mackenzie and his team provided us with the expertise that we needed to create a concrete that was suitable for the job, but also had to have other qualities – high early strength (to allow precast to be striped from forms) and durability. They facilitated and organized testing of aggregates, formulating the mix design and even training experienced concreters on the specific finishing requirements of this specialized concrete.
The consultancy with Technicrete expanded to include setting up a laboratory, fitting it out and training our staff to the stage where it could be certified.
We continue to use Technicrete now for all concrete-related problems. We have been contracting as civil engineering contractors in PNG for over 40 years, and considered ourselves as concreting experts. With the help of Technicrete, Mark Mackenzie and his team, we now are.
I have no hesitation in recommending Technicrete to anyone who is required to solve any problems relating to concrete, its production, placing, finishing and curing.
