Understanding the Differences Between Concrete Cutting Companies
Depending on the size of your commercial or municipal construction project, you might receive a handful of proposals for concrete cutting and coring, or dozens. Although each will likely have its own proposed budget and schedule to compare, it’s also important to note that there are important differences between the types of companies that do concrete cutting.
Here are a few you should be aware of, and why they matter for your construction project:
Specialization. While there are lots of construction companies that can handle small, residential concrete cutting projects, there are only a handful of firms in British Columbia that can tackle larger jobs efficiently. If you want to avoid unnecessary concerns about safety, scheduling delays, and cost overruns, your best bet is to work with a company (like ours) that specializes in concrete cutting.
Location. With offices in Vancouver, Victoria, and Nanaimo, Coast Cutting and Coring can service most parts of British Columbia, and especially the lower Vancouver mainland, effectively. You should look for a similar match in your concrete cutting team’s area of operations.
Size. Obviously, small and large firms each have their own advantages. A business like ours, which employs around 50 people at any given time, is big enough to use state-of-the-art equipment, but small enough to offer extremely competitive pricing and hands-on expertise.
Versatility. Different projects and environments call for various specialties and creative thinking. For instance, Coast Cutting is currently engaged in a project requiring several large, deep holes through an oil platform anchored in the Bering Sea. Not every construction project requires that sort of “out-of-the-box” thinking, but it’s nice to have on hand when you need it.
Services. Does your concrete cutting vendor handle everything you need to complete your project? Established specialty firms like ours can handle everything from core drilling to deep hole drilling, slab sawing, wire sawing, concrete quenching, and even controlled demolition. Or, you might need things like micro-trenching or ground penetrating radar. Having an experienced vendor with the right equipment makes all the difference.
