Concrete core drilling is the process of drilling clean, circular holes in a concrete surface. It is one of the most effective ways to create openings for plumbing, HVAC, electrical and sprinkler systems. Fine Cut can drill holes of various sizes in diameter. Regardless of the area, our trained operators can core drill inside and outside.
Fine Cut’s core drilling team has the advanced drilling technology and expertise to make concrete penetrations of any size, angle or depth. Our drilling equipment allows our technicians to execute smooth and perfectly sized concrete holes that adhere to your exact specifications.
Core drilling into asphalt or concrete may be necessary to make way for other underground structures or to accommodate existing construction involving underground manholes, plumbing or sprinkler systems. A broad range of commercial projects, especially in the transportation realm, require core drilling in the early stages. Maintaining the integrity of the existing concrete surfaces as much as possible is a major concern during core drilling.
The process of core drilling typically involves similar techniques regardless of the project that requires it. To ensure that the drilling is accurate and efficient, the drill core is anchored in place. Once it has been appropriately lined up, the drill bit can be mounted on the equipment. The crank is then engaged while water is used as a coolant on the drill. Once the concrete has been drilled to the required depth, the whole core can be removed along with the drill core and bit.
Core drilling isn’t limited to just concrete. Fine Cut can core drill through structural concrete, asphalt, stone, brick and cinder block. Our team can core drill floors, ceilings, walls, floor and roof drains, sewer drains, phone, electrical, cable and fiber optic openings. We core drill for pipe bollard installation, handrail and anchor holes and even fireplace exhaust systems. Our crew is capable of handling virtually any drilling project with minimal disruption to your operations and job site.
With a distinct, client-centric approach, you can rest assured that your core drilling job will be safely completed on time and budget, all while meeting and exceeding your job requirements. Our technicians are highly skilled at working in a variety of areas and conditions, including those with limited access or confined spaces.
