Core drilling is a type of service in which a drill is used to remove a cylinder of material. In the case of concrete core drilling that would be concrete. The area left in the drill bit is referred to as the core. Southern Cutting & Coring uses Diamond core drills allowing for a dust free work area.
The overlapping coring method is also used to effectively remove any thickness of concrete when other tools can not be applied. This is done by overlapping the holes within the perimeter of the work area. This becomes necessary when the concrete is too thick or if working in limited space that does not allow specialty tools.
Holes can be drilled level, plumb, or on an angle either above or below ground. Common core drilling applications include walls, ceilings, concrete roofs, bridges, tunnels, and road surfaces. They are also used for test core sampling of concrete and asphalt.
Drilled holes are often used to route cables, conduit pipes, and wires through structures, handrails and anchor holes. It is also used for installation of sewer, floor drains and HVAC openings for renovations, demolition or new construction. Our diamond core drills are powered by electric, air and hydraulic means. We are equipped to core up to a 28” hole. Southern Cutting & Coring has the knowledge and skill to get the job done whether you need one hole or 10,000 holes.
