Kilnbridge has developed a reputation for the successful delivery of complex building and civil engineering projects in very challenging environments.
Providing Engineered Solutions
We carry out diamond core drilling for penetrations up to 1.00 m diameter and to depths of up to 4.00 m as standard. Special diameters and greater depths are available on request.
For very large or irregular openings, we offer stitch drilling, making a series of overlapping holes to cut through concrete of any thickness. Using this method we have successfully cut openings through and removed various structures, from door openings in heavily reinforced bank vaults, to openings in deep concrete slabs for pile installation.
Wire Sawing of Concrete and Steel
Wire sawing allows precise cutting to any depth and is ideal for cutting very large sections, such as concrete bridge decks, major wall structures, diaphragm walls, heavily reinforced concrete structures and steel structures such as submarines, ships, oil rigs and aircraft.
As with all diamond cutting techniques, wire sawing is dust and vibration free. Any orientation and depth of cut can be achieved and large diameter holes are easily cut using our circular cutting rigs.
Plunge wire sawing is a technique used where access is constrained to one elevation of the structure and can be only cut from one side.
