Core drilling is an important part of most construction projects, and is foundational for further plumbing, heating, and electrical work. Many types of contractors have become our clients, from trades to roadwork contractors.
Diamond core drilling is so-called because the drill bit is constructed out of industrial-grade diamond, one of the hardest substances in the world.
Core drills are used to bore holes though concrete, brick, block, stone and masonry. Our company has specialized core bits to grind away the surface of these materials to create holes, from 1/2 inch to 26 inches wide. We commonly use our core drills to create holes for pipes and manholes, as well as other large-diameter cores in concrete.
We have used our core drilling skills to reinforce old building walls by drilling through concrete or stone walls, installing anchors, and then injecting reinforcing grout. One of our past clients was Parliament Hill.
Depending on the power supply available at the worksite, we have options for hydraulic, air, and electric core drills. We also have numerous core drills available for our use, depending on the size of the core hole needed. Handheld core drills, rig-mounted units, and intermediary units can be used as handhelds or with a stand.
