Diamond Drilling in Daresbury

Atkinson Civils

The Project Brief

Atkinson Civils, a valued client of ours, contacted us regarding a local project in Daresbury, Warrington. They had encountered difficulties in drilling through a manhole and required our expertise as concrete drilling contractors

With over 50 years of industry experience as accredited diamond drilling contractors, we were confident in our ability to handle this task with ease. As this was a local job for our Warrington-based team, we promptly arrived on-site and began the diamond drilling process.

Two 400mm core holes were drilled through the 250mm reinforced concrete manhole ring, overcoming the previous obstacles faced by our client. Our advanced equipment and skilled team of diamond drilling contractors ensured a precise and efficient drilling process. 

How does diamond drilling work?

Diamond drilling is a highly efficient and effective method frequently used in construction projects, such as this one, for drilling precise holes in various materials such as concrete, asphalt, and stone. This technique involves the use of a diamond-tipped drill bit which rotates at high speeds, resulting in clean and accurate holes. The diamond-tipped drill bit is able to cut through tough materials with ease due to the hardness and sharpness of the diamonds.

One of the key benefits of diamond drilling is its ability to create holes of various sizes and depths without causing any damage to the surrounding structure. This makes it an ideal choice for construction jobs where precision and accuracy are of high importance. Diamond drilling is known for producing much less noise and vibration than other methods, reducing the disruption caused to nearby areas during the drilling process. This is especially beneficial when drilling in urban environments where noise restrictions are in place.

Another advantage of diamond drilling is its versatility. It can be used for a wide range of applications, including the installation of manholes, anchor bolts, plumbing and electrical conduits, and HVAC systems. The precise nature of diamond drilling allows for these installations to be carried out with minimal effort and time. Diamond drilling produces clean-cut holes with smooth edges, reducing the need for additional finishing work.
