Wire Sawing in Dorchester
Dorchester is the administrative hub of the south west. It has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the United Kingdom. It is also well serviced by the transport network with three arterial highways converging on the town and direct rail links to London and Bristol. The town is also well served by the Dorchester Business Improvement District which initiates and keeps an eye on improvement projects like the Brewery Square redevelopment, the Charles Street Development and the Dorchester South Railway Station renewal project.
These projects involve the rehabilitation and renovation of industrial level buildings. Many of them are over a century old and require some serious restructuring. It’s often necessary to remove plinths, reinforced concrete beams, floors and decks. Where cuts have to be made through particularly thick and heavily reinforced concrete, the best solution is to use a Wire Saw. Wire saws can be set up to work on areas with difficult access, including underwater. Probably the wire saw’s biggest asset is that the blade can be threaded through narrow gaps and around pillars and beams or through holes drilled in walls or floors. This means large sections can be removed in one operation and the saw doesn’t have to be attached to the structure as a track saw does.
