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 Perth North 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.

A $448 million upgrade to Mitchell Freeway is now underway, with three separate projects undergoing construction and more than 2,200 local jobs set to be supported.When completed, the three projects are expected to help bust congestion and transform travel to and from Perth’s booming northern suburbs.The $232 million Mitchell Freeway Extension project will extend the freeway north from Hester Avenue to Romeo Road and is anticipated to create more than 1,200 local jobs. Fast tracked to boost the economy through COVID-19, the project is being delivered by the Mitchell Extension Joint Venture, a consortium of BMD Construction and Georgiou Group.The project will include new freeway access points at Hester Avenue, Lukin Drive and Romeo Road, an extension of Romeo Road from Wanneroo Road to Marmion Avenue, duplication of Wanneroo Road from Romeo Road to Trian Road and new shared paths on the western side of the freeway. Additional funding recently announced by the Federal Government means the interchange at Butler Boulevard can also be added to the scope. On top of this, funding has also been negotiated to enable the duplication of Wanneroo Road from south of Romeo Road to Dunstan Road – this will result in a continuous dual carriageway on Wanneroo Road all the way north to Taronga Place in Carabooda.Work on the $140 million Smart Freeway project has also commenced and will see the popular technology rolled out at nine entry ramps southbound from Hester Avenue to Warwick Road.The project is anticipated to create and support more than 500 direct and indirect jobs.The third project will see the Mitchell Freeway southbound widened to three lanes between Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, along with upgrades to the Principal Shared Path for cyclists and pedestrians.This project also includes construction of a new lane from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, an extra lane from Hepburn Avenue entry ramp to Warwick Road exit ramp, new safety barriers and new or upgraded shared paths between Ocean Reef Road to Warwick Station.All three projects are jointly funded by the Federal Government and Western Australian Government, and are on track to be completed late 2023.Western Australian Premier, Mark McGowan, said the $448 million transformation would provide a massive boost to the economy while also transforming the northern suburbs.“We know the northern suburbs are booming with the Western Australian Planning Commission estimating by 2031, the population of the region will have grown by 39 per cent to 395,000 and to 740,000 by 2050,” Mr McGowan said.“It’s important we plan and deliver the infrastructure needed for the future today, which is why we are investing millions in transport upgrades for our northern suburbs to reduce traffic congestion, improve safety and slash travel times.“Combined with other major transport projects underway, including the METRONET Yanchep Rail extension, these projects are creating and supporting thousands of direct and indirect jobs while providing a welcome boost to our economy.”Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said the Federal Government was pleased to partner with the Western Australian Government to deliver these key projects.“Perth’s north-west metropolitan region is growing rapidly, with unprecedented levels of investment boosting the local economy and driving population growth and demand for an effective transport network,” Mr Fletcher said.“This significant upgrade of the Mitchell Freeway will increase connectivity, improve journey reliability and help alleviate local road capacity issues for commuters.”Western Australian Transport Minister, Rita Saffioti, said the projects form part of an extensive upgrade to road, rail and cycling infrastructure works currently underway in Perth’s northern corridor. “When complete, the Mitchell Freeway Extension Project will deliver time savings of up to 15 minutes northbound from Narrows Bridge to Alkimos during the afternoon peak period,” Ms Saffioti said.“The widening of the Mitchell Freeway southbound from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue will improve journey times by seven minutes for drivers, while also increasing the freeway’s southbound capacity by up to 50 per cent, leading to shorter journeys for 51,000 motorists daily.“We have been successful in including a new interchange at Butler Boulevard and duplicating Wanneroo Road in this project, which will mean less rat runs through the northern suburbs and a smoother journey.“The northern suburbs are seeing unprecedented development with the extension of Stephenson Avenue and expansion of the rail network through the METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension.”Read more here
