DIAMOND SAWING

HOMEBASE HARLOW

Sovereign Construction – Homebase Harlow

The Brief

Requirement: Diamond Sawing

Our Client required two new openings 7 m x 2.5 m high avoiding damage to the integrity of the building whilst minimising noise and disruption to an active store and avoiding the use of percussive tools.

The Solution

Project Begins

Our operatives began by removing the external metal cladding panels to allow access to the Pre Cast Concrete Panels behind.

Diamond Hydraulic Hand Sawing

Our Pasma trained operatives used a 2.4m tower scaffold to gain access to the full height.

When access was available to the concrete panels openings were formed through the panels to allow the on-site telehandler to put its forks through and support the sections whilst they were being cut.

With the telehandler in place our operatives proceeded to Diamond Hydraulic Hand Saw through the full thickness of the concrete to form individual pieces 2.3m x 1m weighing 460kg each ready for lifting out using the Tele Handler.

This enabled the sections to be safely removed and minimised disruption to the live store.

Hydraulic Hand Saw Benefits

The sections were found to be a very effective size to enable easy removal from site.

The benefit of the Hydraulic Hand Saw was that cuts could be made in a non-percussive way through the full depth of the concrete enabling any size of panels to be created.

The end result was clean precise openings ready for use as new entranceways to the store.

Client Testimonial

Diacutt operatives left a clean, neat and strong repair which will serve the church well for many years to come. They even managed to fix the bell itself, which had previously seized and remained silent for many years!

Happy days!
