The UK’s Leading Concrete Removal Specialists

High Pressure Water Jet Concrete Removal & Concrete Cutting Services

Speak to the UK’s leading concrete removal and concrete cutting specialists about the most effective and accurate solutions.

Utilising state-of-the-art high pressure water-jets, hydrodemolition allows for controlled concrete removal; offering a safe and efficient solution which uses a vibration-free process which leaves steel structures and reinforcements in place whilst making no damage to adjacent areas.

Our specialist hydrodemolition contractors offer the UK’s leading concrete cutting service; supplying both industry-leading equipment and trained operators to undertake the removal of areas of concrete and expose underlying structures.

Depending upon the specific situation, we’re able to offer both manual hand lance and robotic hydrodemolition for concrete cutting and removal, ensuring an efficient method of concrete removal for even the most challenging (accessibility or water supply restrictions) or small scale projects.

At Buxton Water, we are proud to offer both manual hand lance and robotic hydrodemolition as efficient methods of concrete removal.

Our Approach To Concrete Removal

Using hydrodemolition, our team of trained specialists are able to successfully remove concrete without causing damage to surrounding areas; exposing steel structures to make way for new concrete.

In comparison to alternative methods of removing concrete, hydrodemolition offers a safe and efficient solution using high pressure water jets; either in the form of manual hand lance or robotic jets.

The solution offers precise control, ensuring accurate removal with minimal damage to areas which are required to remain in tact.

Looking at these benefits in a little more detail, we can showcase these as:

  • A Vibration Free Technique
    As a vibration free technique, hydrodemolition eliminates the risk of HAV for operators when compared with other approaches, as well as the reduction of noise in the surrounding areas. This also results in increased accuracy compared with traditional methods.
  • Supporting Structures Remain In Place
    Hydrodemolition removes concrete whilst leaving supporting structures and steel reinforcement in place as well as being cleaned by the water jets, improving the efficiency of a project.
  • No Damage Or Cracking Of Adjacent Surfaces
    The high pressure water jets means a vibration-free solution, resulting in no damage or cracking to adjacent surfaces.
  • Leaves An Excellent Bonding Surface
    Hydrodemolition leaves an excellent bonding surface for new applications behind, ready for use.
  • It’s Cost Effective
    When compared with other techniques, hydrodemolition offers a cost-effective solution making is suitable for a whole host of projects where others may not be deemed affordable. The process also typically results in less operational downtime, bringing further cost savings to a project.
  • It’s Quicker Than The Alternatives
    Hydrodemolition typically offers faster concrete removal than alternative methods, bringing with it the above outlined economical benefits.
  • It’s Versatile
    With either hand lance or robotic hydrodemolition, the technique is able to be utilised even in instances where accessibility or water supply restrictions exist which may prevent the use of other methods of concrete removal.
  • It’s Accurate
    One of the main benefits of hydrodemolition is the accuracy which the method offers when compared with alternatives. With no damage to adjacent surfaces, the method is perfect in instances when certain sections need to be removed whilst others are left in tact. Our robotic fleet offers the highest level of accuracy possible.
  • An Incredibly Safe Solution
    Hydrodemolition is typically regarded by civil engineers as the safest and most efficient concrete removal solution.
  • An Environmentally Friendly Method
    With no dust or noise pollution, you can be sure there’s no detrimental impact to the environment when using hydrodemolition.
