Wall & Floor Chasing in Plymouth
Devon’s Plymouth is steeped in history. More than any other British port, it’s associated with the Royal Navy, engineering ingenuity and with old fashioned high adventure, exploration and discovery. Being the home of the Royal Navy it has always had a vibrant and fluid population. Members of the armed forces form a vital part of the Plymouth society. The facilities and structures needed to accommodate them have formed a significant part of the development and maintenance of Plymouth. The buildings erected for the navy were always of the highest standard. A great example is the Royal William Victualling Yard. Built between 1826 and 1835, shortly after the Napoleonic Wars, the facility was in use until 1992. It was then sold to developers and converted it into a mixed use development which has retained the external structures unaltered.
Updating these fine old buildings requires the upgrading of services reticulations. Electricity conduit and plumbing for gas and water must be sunk into the walls and floors by way of channels chased into the building. 24-7 Diamond Drilling and Sawing Services are experts at wall and floor chasing and have long been providing not just Plymouth but the whole of Devon’s chasing needs for over 30 years.
