Concrete Core Cutting

Our concrete coring and cutting services use the latest diamond drilling machinery to drill to a diameter of between 7-1500mm. Concrete coring gives you a cylindrical sample for concrete testing purposes, allowing checks for possible deterioration or suitability for further work.

We can drill through reinforced concrete block and brick to any depth, even within confined spaces. Because of the precise circular holes produced by concrete core cutting, this is an ideal option for plumbing or electrical installation.


  • Accurate, precise clean-cut cores from 7-1500mm diameter
  • Able to drill through reinforced concrete and brick
  • Non-destructive: a reduced risk of causing structural damage
  • Very little noise and no dust
  • Able to work within confined spaces
  • Ideal for concrete testing purposes and plumbing/electrical installation

Twycross Zoo

D-Drill get a trunk call A trip to Twycross Zoo had a whole new meaning for a Midlands firm. Alan Moore from diamond drilling and sawing firm D-Drill (Master Drillers) Ltd in Shilton near Coventry was assigned the task of creating four feeding holes for the zoo’s five elephants at their habitat. The four female elephants plus 15-month-old baby elephant Ganesh -Vijay can now reach hay through the man-made holes at the popular tourist attraction in Burton Road, Atherstone. Mary Rodger, marketing executive at Twycross Zoo, said the elephants had been intrigued to know what was going on. “Four holes have been drilled through a concrete wall as part of our Enrichment Programme,” she said. “We have sand interior to soften the ground and it makes it a more natural environment within our elephant house, but with the hay on the floor, they ingest more sand with their hay than we’d like. The new holes will allow the hay to be racked off the floor, whilst simultaneously adding...
