Concrete Coring Marrickville – Perfect Concrete Care

The Challenges

Concrete Coring carried out in Arthur St, Marrickville


The coring of walls, ceilings, floors and balconies to allow for plumbing and electrical services to be installed.

Techniques Used:

  • Core Ceilings, Floors, Walls and Balconies to allow for services to be installed.
  • Various diameters and depths ranging from 62mm – 182mm wide to 40mm – 300mm in depth.
  • Core Balcony floors to allow for down pipes to be installed.
  • Core basement wall to allow for plumbing services to be installed.

Before we began coring our team member consulted with the site manager and project manger to locate exactly where each core whole was to be made. The site manager then went around and sprayed all areas where cores are to be installed and marked which diameter to make the core.

Next our team member unloaded the van and began establishment at the first coring site. Electricity was ran with extension leads suspended on cable hangers. Water supply was not needed as our team member was using our Makinex Water Pump Tank, which holds up to 40L of water and gives our core drill a steady supply of water. This saves the time involved in running a water supply to each core site.

Our team member uses our Makita Cordless Combi – Hammer Drill to drill the wall and install the dyna bolt so we can secure the stand for our Tyrolit Core Drill. This stand ensures for an accurate core hole and makes applying pressure to the drill as it is coring easier for our operator.

Once our stand is installed and in place our team member then mounted the Tyrolit Core Drill to the stand and installed the 182mm core barrel. Once our team member was happy with the setup then our Makinex Water Tank was attached to the Core Drill. This keeps the diamonds cool during the coring process to ensure they do not overheat and allows for a cleaner more efficient core.

The Result: All core holes were completed on time and on schedule and the client was happy with the outcome of the works carried out.
