Perfect Concrete Care just completed work at Central Train Station, Sydney for DEGNAN Constructions PTY Ltd. This included the concrete cutting of elevator doors. This allows for bigger lift installation and concrete coring in the lift shaft to allow the running of services.

Concrete Cutting and Coring at Central Station Sydney

  • Concrete cutting to allow for bigger lift installation
  • Concrete coring of lift shaft to allow for services
Techniques Used:

Our team members first met with the client representative to discuss their requirements and assess the best plan of action to carry out the work. The client in this situation was looking to increase the width of the elevator doors. Our team members decided that our Husqvarna K970 Concrete Ring Saw would be best suited for the task. It allows for a deeper cut than our normal concrete demo saws. We find the Husqvarna K970 easy to use and cuts through anything like butter. It allows us to perform a much cleaner and more accurate cut.

At the first stage of concrete cutting, the client marked out all cut lines and they were happy. Then our team members began to run a water supply and power supply for our ring saw and slurry vac as the client requested slurry control. This means that our how power slurry vac vacuumed up the slurry created from the ring saw and keeps the area clean and tidy.

First of all, our team members had completed all concrete cuts and the client was happy. Then they moved on to the concrete coring works required. The client needed a 200mm diameter penetration on the top of the elevator shaft on both sides. Their structural engineer requested it to allow for the installation of a new steel beam, as the current one was not sufficient to hold the new elevator motor.

The client marked both sides of the walls where they wanted concrete core holes to install the beam. Then our team members proceeded to run a water supply and electricity to the area to run the core drill.

We then proceeded to install the core drill stand by first measuring and installing dyna bolts to hold the stand in place, as this was a horizontal penetration. After dyna bolt installation, both our team members lifted the drill stood into place and attached the drill. When they were happy with the position and how stable the drill stand was, then they connected the water and proceeded to drill the core hole.

The Result:

The client was delighted with the outcome of the work and how efficient our team members were.
