CONCRETE CUTTING AND DIAMOND DRILLING
reaching the parts that other demolition equipment cannot reach

In demolition work sometimes you need highly precise and targeted equipment to tackle tasks in confined or challenging environments.

Responding to a growing demand from our customers for this type of solution in 2016 we launched our dedicated Concrete Cutting and Diamond Drilling division. This team provides high-precision and environmentally- friendly solutions to demolition challenges.

Diamond Drilling provides ‘pin point accuracy’ with smooth edges to ensure minimal invasiveness to other surrounding structures. Using ‘leading edge’ technology we are able to demolish concrete structures while maintaining structural integrity and keeping dust, noise and debris to a minimum. Reinforced steel bars can be Diamond Sawed ‘in situ’ and the overall waste produced in a more controlled way for excavation and collection.

We use our Concrete Cutting and Diamond Drilling equipment when operating in confined spaces, such as basements or underwater, where traditional equipment is inappropriate.

Another key benefit of this technology is that the machines operate very quickly and are virtually silent, making them ideal where noise pollution is a consideration, or for working adjacent to party walls and retained structures that demand a vibration free environment.

Diamond Drilling can also be implemented where large areas of concrete need to be removed (stitch drilling), while maintaining the integrity of the structure. Also Diamond Drilling is the most effective way to carry out demolition drilling in underwater scenarios.
