House slabs & commercial buildings

Every project starts with foundations, and for homes and commercial builds it’s a concrete slab. This is the foundation that is essential for stabilising and baring the weight of the rest your structure – so make sure you have your slab installed by a top rated Torquay concreter like Arkonik concrete.


Your new house or commercial building slab may require: Digging, setup, pouring of footings, under slab drainage, insulation and moisture barrier or retraining walls to be put in place before the foundation slab is installed. Depending on the size of the project, this stage can take 1 – 3 weeks.

Concrete reinforcement

Construction projects that span larger areas and hold greater weight will likely call for reinforcement. Reinforced concrete comes in two main varieties: Rebar (steel rods inserted in wet concrete to strengthen when it bonds together) and wired mesh which is also laid into wet concrete to give greater holding strength when dry. While concrete costs can stay reasonably stable, steel costs do fluctuate a little more and could become a major variable in your price.

Shed slabs

Most sheds are relatively small and simple. Concrete slab cost for sheds can range from around $4,500 for a small shed all the way up to $22,000 for an extra-large shed. The total cost of a concrete slab for a shed is largely based on its size, with average prices being:


  • $4,500–$6,500 to pour a slab for a small shed (6m x 7m – 6m x 9m)

  • $10,000 – $14,000 for a medium sized shed (7m x 14m)

  • $15,000 – $22,000 for a large shed (12m x 13m)


The Arkonik concrete team will be able to pour your slab in less than a day, however, there may be some pre-works required that take the same amount of time if your surface is sloping and excavation is needed or a pour thicker on one side than the other is required.
