Electric Floor Sawing in Stockport

Stepping Hill Hospital

The Project Brief

Our team of diamond drilling contractors recently completed a challenging floor sawing project at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport, Greater Manchester. 

This project involved cutting through 300mm thick reinforced concrete using our state-of–the-art electric floor saws. This intricate work was needed by our client to create space for new drainage and manholes for the hospital. 

The expertise and precision of our team allowed us to successfully overcome the difficulties posed by the thickness and strength of the reinforced concrete, which shows our team’s ability to undertake complex commercial projects whilst still delivering exceptional results.

Cutting through Reinforced Concrete

As a diamond drilling company with over 50 years of industry experience, we’re no strangers to cutting through tough materials such as concrete. So, when we were faced with the challenge of sawing through 300mm of reinforced concrete, we knew that our electric floor saws were the best for the job - as these powerful tools are specifically designed to tackle tough materials such as reinforced concrete with ease.

Our electric floor saws are equipped with diamond blades, which are renowned for their exceptional strength and durability. The diamond blades are able to cut through the densest of materials, including reinforced concrete, without compromising on precision or speed. This allowed us to cut through the tough, reinforced concrete in a timely manner, sawing our clients both time and money.

Electric Floor Saw Cutting

Wondering why we opted for our electric floor saws for this project? As CHAS Accredited diamond drilling contractors, our team have found that electric floor saws are an invaluable tool for cutting through various materials, especially concrete and reinforced concrete. These powerful machines offer a range of benefits that make them the preferred choice for precision cutting in construction and demolition projects.

One of the key advantages of using electric floor saws is their ability to cut through concrete with remarkable speed and efficiency. The high-powered electric motors can generate enough torque to easily slice through even the toughest materials, saving both time and effort. This enables us to complete projects faster, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

Another major benefit of electric floor saws is their versatility. They are designed to handle different types of materials, including reinforced concrete, with ease. The diamond blades used in these saws are specifically engineered to withstand the hardness of concrete and the added resistance of reinforcement bars. This ensures clean and precise cuts, without causing excessive damage to the surrounding structure - which made them the ideal choice of tool for this project in Stockport. 

As this project took place in a hospital, the enhanced safety features of electric floor saws were a must-have. Ours are equipped with advanced dust suppression systems, which help minimise airborne dust particles, protecting our team, the environment and anybody else in the surrounding areas and the environment. These machines also provide better control and stability, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries during operation. As we prioritise safety in every project we do, we pride ourselves on using the best possible machinery to get the job done safely and efficiently. 

So, what did the client think?

Our client was pleased with the speed and precision with which we cut through the reinforced concrete flooring, creating the perfect space for the manholes and drainage needed.
