Sawing & Coring Services

22 years ago, in the early stages of concrete flatwork and structures, CHC invested in a variety of cutting equipment to assist on difficult projects. Over the years we have grown into a supplier of specialty cutting and diamond drilling for our contract work. As the word got out about our equipment and the services we could perform, the Sawing & Coring division of CHC was off and running.

CHC, Inc. was the first in the Rocky Mountain region to implement early entry concrete sawing of floors by dry cutting slabs the same day as the pour. This is a technique that was patented and later approved by State and Federal agencies that set new standards in slab cutting by minimizing slab cracking after the pour. Our knowledge is superior to most since we are also a Civil Contractor and we understand the applications in depth.

We currently offer wall and flat cutting as well as horizontal and vertical core drilling of both concrete and asphalt. We are able to flat cut up to depths of 22” and cut concrete walls that are up to 16” thick and can core drill up to 36” in diameter and everything in between. Our array of equipment to handle these tasks includes concrete cutting chain saws, hand held wall saws, and hydraulic drills.
