A new concrete project, like any home improvement, starts with planning, discussion and coordination of several trades to bring about a quality finish. If the project has delivered on what you expected and more, it means the preparation has been well thought out for the best results.
Whether you are laying concrete for a driveway, walkway or a patio, Panorama Concrete Adelaide provides a one stop shop service from consultation and design, to installation. During the initial planning phase, we discuss the following with our clients:
- The purpose and function of the space to be laid with concrete
- Whether you have kids who will be riding bikes in the area
- Will there be outdoor furniture/tables on it?
- Will you have heavy or light traffic – cars, boats, trailers?
With this information, we advise on the texture and the amount of pebbles used if it’s exposed aggregate. We’ll advise on whether stamped concrete or handcrafted saw-cut concrete would suit the area better.
For example, if the area will be used for entertainment, with people standing and table legs balancing, then you’ll want a finer aggregate with less pebbles and texture. The same applies if children will be running around and potentially falling – you don’t want a rough aggregate that hurts little knees.
If you have heavier commercial vehicles and boats at home, we may advise on a heavier grade concrete with a specific aggregate. All these things are taken into consideration during the planning phase with our clients.
Which concrete company to choose?
Panorama Concrete Adelaide has been laying concrete in Adelaide’s residential homes and commercial developments for more than 30 years. After all these years, one thing we know for certain is that a successful concrete project is one that is planned well.
Laying the concrete is only part of the equation. Understanding the purpose of the concrete, your lifestyle needs and the home site itself are all considered carefully.
As an experienced concrete company with many years in Adelaide, we are often asked to fix botched concrete jobs and this is virtually impossible to do. In most cases we need to remove the old concrete, and start from scratch. It’s an expensive process for our clients and one that can be avoided.
Visit our display centre to see and feel samples
We are the only concrete Adelaide company that has a concrete display centre. We have many samples laid out for you to view inside and outside. Once you’ve decided to work with Panorama Concrete, we provide large samples to take home, so that you can be sure you’ve picked the right colour.
You have many opportunities to ensure that the colour, texture, style of concrete is the best fit for your project. The old saying “measure twice, cut once” can be applied to laying concrete.

We offer a one stop shop service to complete your concrete project
Installing a new concrete driveway, walkway or a patio at home often involves much more than just laying the concrete. At Panorama Concrete Adelaide, we offer a one stop shop service which means you don’t have to run around looking for other suppliers to do those additional things needed when installing concrete.
Panorama Concrete Adelaide will help you with the following:
There are many aspects of a concrete project to consider when installing a fence and vice versa. We work with fencing companies in Adelaide, collaborating to manage your concrete project so that the end result is complete and integrated. Talk to us about your fencing needs, we’ll make sure that both the fence and concrete are complementary to each other.
If your concrete project needs a retaining wall, the team at Panorama Concrete Adelaide will install smaller retaining walls up to about a metre height. For anything larger you will need to go to a company specialising in retaining walls.
Integration of your current garden with the new concrete
We will advise on pathways through your garden that will help make the garden look more inviting, For example, we suggest pathway styles, edges, shapes and textures, and whether a shaped, curved or straight pathway would suit your garden and home.
Have a look at our blog “5 creative concrete ideas for patios and pathways”.
White ant treatment
We organise white ant treatment if needed before the concrete project begins to ensure there are no unwanted surprises in the future.
We advise you on stormwater drainage and build this into your concrete project if necessary, to ensure that proper drainage happens after your concrete is installed.
Artificial lawns are sought after for their low maintenance and the fact they always look green! The water drainage of an artificial lawn needs to be carefully considered so it is a good time to plan for this when laying concrete. The team at Panorama Concrete Adelaide will arrange a quote and installation of artificial lawns through our local suppliers.
Lights installed in concrete
Lights can be installed into the sides of concrete driveways to light the way up or down a driveway. We would coordinate required trades such as electrical as part of the project.
Panorama Concrete Adelaide for commercial projects
We are proud of the work we have done for some of Adelaide’s most prominent buildings and spaces. The Adelaide Airport called for a new and smoother finish which we now use in many residential homes for entertaining areas.
The Adelaide Zoo needed a salt wash finish to suit the natural habitat.
Bank Street in the city was laid with a finer exposed aggregate concrete followed by handcrafted saw-cut shapes to give a paver look. This provided durability for heavier traffic and no weeding required less maintenance.
We installed over 2500 square metres of concrete at the Adelaide Festival Centre. If you happen to be walking past the Adelaide Convention Centre, you will also see our Platinum exposed aggregate concrete finishes out the front.
We’ve also completed a large concrete project at Minda during their redevelopment and have laid many council walkways around Adelaide. We are currently completing a concrete project at Gawler Place, Adelaide which has meant a lot of night work for our concrete teams.
