The many uses of Diamond Drilling across airfields

Diamond drilling is a specialised drilling technique used to cut through the hardest reinforced concrete with utmost precision. The process involves using diamond-tipped drill bits, connected to either an electric or hydraulic drill motor and rig, allowing careful control over the location and speed of hole formation. Diamond drilling allows our team to make holes of varying diameters and shapes when linked together in a stitch-drilled pattern, and is a quiet and non-percussive technique.

Castle & Pryor uses only experienced and fully qualified engineers who have undergone extensive training to NVQ Level 2 in the use of diamond drilling tools. We’ll utilise a range of equipment, with electric and diesel-powered drills available in multiple sizes to suit the needs of every client.

There are many applications for diamond drilling within airports, such as:

  • Forming holes to accept fixings for signs, barriers, fencing and more.
  • Drilling holes or openings through concrete or masonry structures to accept services.
  • We use diamond drilling for the core testing of concrete, asphalt or subbase material strength.
  • As part of our AGL installation work, we utilise diamond drilling to form holes for AGL ‘pots’.
  • We can also utilise stitch drilling at the ends and intersections of saw cuts, negating the need for overcutting.

Working with our team

We were approached by Morgan Sindall to deliver the installation of new airport ground lighting on the taxiway at Heathrow Terminal 4. The alterations were necessary to replace existing halogen stop bar lights with LED units in the concrete taxiway. Castle & Pryor provided operatives experienced in installing airfield ground lighting in both military and commercial runways, ensuring the project was completed on time and on budget.
