Cullen Group – Units
Cannon Hill, QLD
Concrete Cutting & Sawing / Concrete Drilling & Core Drilling
Project completed with a 100% clean safety record.
ACE was contacted here to help do core drilling from the top of the dam wall to the gallery below. With the requirements of the project it was important that the work was completed to the highest calibre.
The cores were 5 metres deep with 150mm diameters, hydraulic services were required to run from lower level gallery to the top of the damn wall. Each position was marked on top of the wall and in the gallery below so accuracy was critical, especially over the 5 metre distance. We used hydraulic drills, power packs, cores of vary lengths (up to 2 metres), extension rods, as well as designing our own snap and removal equipment for the cores as depth increased. We also implemented a recovery system in case we lost any segments from the barrels.

Mega Mart lies 30 mins outside our Oakleigh office amidst a multitude of warehouses and retail outlets; as such, we have been heavily involved with their on-site presence. Before the car sales complex opened to the public, we were engaged to provide expansion sawing of the concrete slabs that would comprise the complex, this entailed cutting, sawing & core hole drilling thousands of metres of concrete slabs. Along with this we provided the expertise and experience of preforming the concrete polishing for such businesses as Mega Marts onsite cafe, ARB 4WD, and Strongman. Below are examples of the work-in-progess in the lead-up to it being opened.
