10-Metre Bored Pile Concrete Core Test

The Challenge

There was suspected non-compliance in terms of bored pile concrete integrity, the bored pile for future construction of highway needs to be inspected and tested to assess its compressive strength. Four 10-metre length samples were required.

Our Approach & Result

Coring at such depth requires powerful core drill equipment combine with the right experience and skill set to complete the job. Therefore, after qualifying, Sonicon was chosen for the job based on methodology, equipment, experience and portfolio.

We customized and extended diamond tube barrel to core deeper than 10-metre, and the concrete cylindrical sample were extracted from the surface and ready to be sent to the lab to undergo testing. The whole job was a big success.
