Concrete CuttingProfessional Concrete Cutting Technicians
Concrete is a very resilient building material that can stand for decades without full replacement. Because of the durability of concrete as a whole, full demolition is not frequently required. This is where Aggregate Technologies specialty – concrete cutting – comes into play. The nature of concrete as a building material is very unique, especially compared to steel. It is a material that can be more effectively formed into complete structures by itself.
Multiple Industries Served
Largely undamaged concrete sections can typically remain standing while portions are removed via cutting and repaired with fresh concrete and steel rebar. Aggregate Technologies has the results to support our reputation as one of the leaders in the Gulf Coast construction industry, and our concrete cutting work has kept much of the region’s infrastructure functioning at full capacity. We have serviced many bridges, ports, public utilities, hospitals and airports with our concrete cutting abilities

Aggregate Technologies' hydrodemolition process involves the most sophisticated robotic system available (Aquajet Systems), and can be programmed to perform its duties by a single operator well clear of the demolition that is being performed. It utilizes a computer-guided water jet on a track mounted machine that is guided over the surface to be removed. The precision cutting head can be programmed to cut a specific shape with no overruns or relief cuts, such as a manhole or for ductwork. Concrete decks and flooring are removed with the cutting head on the ground, and the machine can also articulate along a vertical wall surface and overhead areas up to 23 feet without support.
Aggregate Technologies has brought hydrodemolition and our robotic technology to many diverse structure types and applications. The process works particularly well on bridge decks, and can speed up the process of removing a top layer of concrete or other overlay material to create a suitable surface for a repaired wearing course. Hydrodemolition is perfect for scarification of concrete.
