Cut & Carve

Our structural modification service allows us to ‘cut and carve’ large sections of concrete, using a mix of our specialist diamond cutting (such as wire-sawing), controlled demolition techniques and removal which can be used for partial demolition, major refurbishment projects and significant structural alterations to buildings

It’s an efficient, safe and fast way of removing concrete from large and small-scale operations, leaving a clear and structurally safe environment for the next stage of a construction project.


  • Versatile, due to the different techniques and equipment, so can cope with a range of projects
  • Cost effective: structural modification can be used to salvage damaged structures or correct defects
  • Efficient, safe and fast way of removing concrete from large and small-scale operations
