Core drilling is a fast, safe method of producing consistent diameter holes in concrete, stone, asphalt, & masonry without causing impact or vibration damage to the surrounding structure. Common applications include creating openings for plumbing, electrical, & HVAC installations & slab & roadway holes for doweling drilling, rebar tie-ins, & drainage systems.
Flat (Slab) Sawing
Flat sawing, also known as slab sawing, refers to sawing horizontal concrete surfaces such as roofs, floors, highways, & bridge decks. Typical applications include trenching for electrical & plumbing installation; creating openings for staircases, elevators, & duct work; cutting expansion & control joints; & removing sections of pavement.
Wall (Track) Sawing
Wall sawing, also known as track sawing, refers to sawing vertical surfaces, such as concrete walls, pits, or areas that cannot be accessed easily by other conventional flat-cutting equipment. It is often used for precision cuts for dimensional door, vent, & window openings.
Wall sawing utilizes a diamond blade on a portable, track-mounted system that can be used for both horizontal & vertical cuts. The wall saw technique is fast & convenient, allowing our customers to save money & valuable time. Our saws can cut into a depth of 30” in concrete using this method, or if both sides are accessible, can cut up to 60”. Our fleet includes hydraulic & electric saws & we are equipped to work in any environment with the help of Concrete Technology Services.
Wire sawing is a versatile method used to accomplish vertical, horizontal, or angled cuts of complex structures that are too large or awkward for other cutting methods or in areas with limited access. The wire saw is perfect for cutting any shape or thickness and is often applied to complex situations such as bridge pier modifications, industrial plant upgrades, generator replacements, and lock and dam retrofits.
Wire sawing is commonly used for underwater cutting, cuts in restricted or remote areas, cuts that require minimal vibration, anchor door openings, & cutting through depths which are beyond the reach of conventional tools. Wire saws are diamond-laced cables that are pushed or pulled via pulleys through the target material whilst being cooled down with water.
Structural Robotic Demolition
Structural demolition is the tearing down of buildings or specific structural elements, including walls, floor or roof systems, highway bridges, & foundations, either manually or by mechanical means. We employ Brokk robotic demolition equipment to carry out demolition remotely, meaning our operators do not have to be near the structure being demolished.
Our Brokk robotic demolition equipment is amongst the most highly regarded in the world, combining cutting-edge remote control technology with magnificent power for swift, efficient work. Our equipment allows us to work in tight spaces using electric power, eliminating exhaust fumes. It provides a more cost-effective, safe solution to a broad range of complex demolition projects.
Structural Imaging (X-Ray & GPR)
Structural imaging provides real-time visions of pipes, conduits, utility lines, voids, rebar, & other hazards within concrete that aren’t otherwise visible. Methods include X-ray, ground-penetrating radar, & CCTV.
CTS’s affiliate, Concrete Imaging, Inc. provides quality structural imaging & radiography services throughout the Mid-Atlantic & surrounding areas, specializing in:
- digital radiography (x-ray);
- high definition ground-penetrating radar (GPR);
- utility locating; and
- high definition CCTV pipeline inspection.
