Hand sawing for Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre

Accelerated Concrete Sawing completed sawing works on a ProBuild site to enable the installation of new escalators in the latest renovation of the Chadstone Shopping Centre complex in Melbourne.

Works included the controlled demolition of existing suspended slabs to reconfigure area to take new escalators, and finished off with a detailed sawing of concrete beams to enable steel work to be installed to support new escalators. Sawing works included core drilling to avoid over cuts, hand sawing of concrete for removal, and flush cutting to clean up corners of slab to square.

Works were carried out over a number of nights. All elevated work platforms, back propping, exclusions zones, and removal of materials were coordinated by Accelerated Concrete Sawing to ensure the works were completed safely and efficiently.
