Cutting & Coring
Metro Testing + Engineering’s technicians specialize in concrete cutting, coring and drilling. A complete scope of concrete removal of slab-on-grade for pits, bases, service trenches and other applications, as well as total disposal of materials off-site are available.
Coring is invaluable for various purposes including the installation/removal of conduits, duct work, water, electrical and gas lines. Using ground penetrating radar (GPR) to safely assess and report any obstructions in the concrete or asphalt, prior to penetrating into the structure, trained technicians can drill holes from ¼” to 12” in diameter and extract cores from 6 inches to more than 20 feet. Gas powered coring equipment gives technicians the ability to provide coring services in remote locations.
