CA Drillers are proud to be working on our 2nd job in France – this time working in Paris!! This is exciting news for CA Drillers expanding into Europe! We have been requested by our client to remove an existing reinforced concrete staircase which spans over 4 floors along with the landing areas on each floor. Additional to this main scope of works we are diamond cutting and breaking out to form new doorways and carrying soft strip throughout existing office areas. Due to the narrow landing areas we were unable to utilise our Brokk for this works. Instead we fabricated our Pentruder track to enable it to be set up on the staircase itself and then flush cut to the existing wall. We then incorporated diamond drilling, hydraulic bursting and breaking to remove the cut sections.
The area of works was propped with scaffolding to protect the area below and create a safe working environment. All debris being removed to skips via a rubble shoot through the middle of the staircase for maximum efficiency. We have already priced a 2nd phase and are confident that the success with the 1st phase will help with securing future works across the channel!!
C A Drillers entered this year’s Diamond Award’s competition (www.diamondaward.org) which was being held at the IACDS Networking Event in Bauma, Munich, Germany. We were delighted to be invited to enter by our suppliers, Pentruder UK!
We were asked to create a case study on a recent project we had worked on. There was no better project to choose than the work we have carried at London City Airport on behalf of Bam Nuttall UK.
Here is the link to our Case Study if you are intrigued! We were not lucky enough to come away with first prize but are extremely proud that we received an award for being shortlisted within the category. The competition was opened to companies world wide.
Competitors be aware, we will be bigger and better next year!

We are delighted to be carrying out some wire sawing for the footing alterations as part of the works being carried at Boughton Golf Club. This is part of the build of a Hotel within its grounds. The project is nice and local to our head office!
The CA Drillers operatives working on Chelsea Barracks have been awarded the “Gang of the week” safety award for the excellent work they’re doing for us on site.
We have recently hit £1.5m on the ongoing job at 10 Trinity Square. This project has been made up of converting the huge grade two listed building which is one of London’s famous landmarks into luxurious apartments, Hotel and Club. The job is slowly coming to an end now and is expected to be fully complete by May 2017. We are extremely proud to be part of such a huge contract in London and lucky to have witnessed such an exclusive project from start to finish.
This week we have started a new phase of works at Chelsea Barracks for Mace. We have worked on the project for around 4 months now but this week we have been able to start the required works which involve the use of one of our BROKKs! Let the demolition work commence with this beast! The BROKK 100 can most definitely stand up to the job.
We have just purchased another new van, first of 2017! Let’s hope this is the start of a another great year. We have decided to go for an Iveco this time, seems a good choice so far.
