Sandicliffe Ford, Leicester – June 2015
UK Diamond Drilling Ltd don’t JUST drill holes, we specialise in all concrete removal projects.
Slab removal is a common requirement in renovation and alteration projects, and there are a number of ways to achieve the results. This will depend on specific site and client requirements and possible restrictions in terms of noise, vibration, dust, access and timescale etc.
Here’s a 56 tonne upper floor slab removal project we recently finished to allow a new internal feature for our client. To keep vibration, and mess, to a minimum we used an electric floor saw to cut the slab into manageable sections and used a fork truck to remove the blocks to skips for disposal.
The building had been erected prior to the widespread use of modern “stud-welding” techniques, so the slab had been cast into the supporting steelwork. We had to resort back to some manual effort around the beams to get the job finished… and a great job all round!
