It sounds like a specialised construction area, but core drilling is one of the most common (and necessary) phases in building residential and commercial structures. It's also frequently used in everyday projects like installing phone lines, neighbourhood plumbing, HVAC ducting, setting up sprinkler systems, and so much more. So, what exactly is core drilling?
Core drilling is actually a practice that dates back to the Ancient Egyptians, who also used this technique to 'core' through geologic formations and built incredible monuments. In the modern-day context, core drilling contractors can use this drilling method for environmental industry projects, subsurface investigations (to find out if the land can support your intended design and engineering decisions), and to cut through concrete walls, floors, ceilings, and other structures. The holes can be drilled at any angle, whether horizontal or vertical.
When it comes to concrete core drilling, core drilling contractors will rely on hard coring. This type of core drilling uses two nested barrels and is used to cut through very hard material like rock or, in this case, concrete. It's also called diamond coring. Core drilling companies in Mount Surprise can drill holes as small as three-fourths of an inch to as large as 73 inches. The process is dust-free, non-percussive, and is also low on noise.
So how does it work? The process of concrete core drilling uses a diamond cutting end attached to a steel tube. First, technicians will need to perform pre-drilling clearance, which is where they mark sensitive areas to indicate rods, conduits, water mains, and more. Next, core drilling contractors will attach the rig to the floor surface using an anchor or vacuum seal. While the rig digs the hole or "cores" the surface, it is cooled by water, which reduces friction. Once the slug is drawn back up and removed, you're left with a perfect hole.
These types of drilled holes are required for construction projects in:
You can see how many of these projects are public works that affect the community you live in. That's why it's so important to ensure that the right core drilling company is responsible for your construction project.

Macmahon Holdings has been awarded a new $200 million contract by Anglo American Australia for mining works at the Dawson metallurgical coal mine in Queensland. The contract award will get Macmahon to deliver surface mining services at the Dawson South operations over a three-year period beginning July 2021. “We are very pleased to be selected for the Dawson South operation by Anglo American, a leading global mining company. We look forward to working very closely with our new client to ensure a smooth transition period and continuity of safe operations. This new project further strengthens our growing east coast presence,” Macmahon Holdings CEO and Managing Director Michael Finnegan said. The Dawson Mine is located in Central Queensland and it is considered as one of the oldest coal mining operations in the region – commencing operations in 1961. The mine is comprised of three operating pits, namely North, Central and South. The Dawson Mine was the first Australian mine to export coal to Japan in 1961 as well as the first mine to introduce the use of draglines in operations in 1963. The Dawson Mine is a joint venture development between Anglo American and Mitsui Holdings, and operated by Anglo American.Read more here
The preferred route for the new Coomera Connector’s northern section has been identified following an independent study of potential routes, with $1.5 billion in funding already secured for stage one of the project. The route is proposed to cross the Albert River east of Eagleby, connecting to the M1 and Logan Motorway at Loganholme.It was considered in comparison to six other alternative routes by independent traffic planners and environmental specialists.Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said the Coomera Connector would be critical to easing traffic congestion between the Gold Coast and Logan.“Thanks to our state’s strong management of the COVID-19 health and economic crises, more Australians are choosing Queensland as the place to live and invest in,” Mr Bailey said.“Even before COVID, communities in the northern Gold Coast were among the fastest growing parts of Australia.“The Coomera Connector is a major project in our $50 billion infrastructure guarantee to build better roads and support new jobs for Queenslanders.“It will become a key route for residents making local trips without having to get on the M1.“The Palaszczuk Government has worked with the Federal Government to lock in $1.5 billion to start building stage one between Nerang and Coomera, but we can’t lose momentum on planning for future stages.”Mr Bailey said independent specialists involved in the route assessment agreed the previously gazetted Coomera Connector alignment was the most suitable alignment.“We gave a commitment to the community to rigorously investigate six alternative alignments for the northern section of the Coomera Connector,” Mr Bailey said.“I thank the community members who put their time and effort into that process.“Key considerations for independent specialists were the impacts on communities, impacts on the environment, the proposed cost, and the ability to reduce M1 congestion.“The conclusion from their assessments was that the current Coomera Connector alignment had the least number of impacts on properties and homes and did not impact on the RAMSAR wetlands located north of the Logan River.”Mr Bailey said community proposals to connect the new road to Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road would impact more properties due to the need to expand Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road to six lanes in some sections, driving higher traffic volumes past three schools and increasing project costs.“Connecting to Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road was also found to not be as effective in reducing M1 congestion, compared to the gazetted alignment which provides a direct connection to the Logan and Pacific Motorway interchange at Loganholme.”Mr Bailey said all options for the Coomera Connector’s northern section were located within the Logan and Albert River catchments.“Concerns have been raised by some community members about the preferred route’s impact on the wetlands next to Eagleby.“To avoid those impacts, one of the alternatives put forward by the community was to build the new road further east, through the Gilberton and Alberton area.“Assessments found that option would impact a larger portion of more environmentally sensitive areas, including RAMSAR wetlands to the north of the Logan River and a Koala Priority Area.”Mr Bailey said the community would continue to be closely involved in planning for the future road connection.“Our focus over the next 18 months on the northern section of the Coomera Connector will be determining the staging plan for future works between Loganholme and Coomera,” Mr Bailey said.“When planning major roads, we always seek to design and construct them in an environmentally sensitive manner, in consultation with the local community.“The Smithfield Bypass that’s currently being built north of Cairns is a good example of that.“As part of that project, a new wetland habitat was created by excavating the site and using soil from the project to create bunds that could be planted with native flora, including water plants suitable for local bird life.“Our project team will look for opportunities like that to enhance the local environment around Eagleby, with the potential to include features like additional board walks around the wetlands to support bird watching and ecotourism.”Mr Bailey said a series of community information sessions would be held in the coming weeks to share details from the independent Coomera Connector route assessments.“We’ll hold at least four community information sessions at Beenleigh, Cornubia, Carbrook and Eagleby, as well as letterbox the local community to explain the findings of the independent route assessments,” Mr Bailey said.Background:The 45km Coomera Connector corridor between Loganholme and Nerang was formally confirmed in the Queensland Government Gazette on 15 March 2019.Read more here
