Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Why Grinding Concrete Floors With Diamond Grit Wheels Is Favoured By Many Concrete Contractors

Troy Medina

When it comes to performing projects that involve grinding and polishing concrete floor systems, nothing is more suited for the job than concrete grinders. However, it is important to know that not all concrete grinders operate the same way despite being created to perform the same function. Various grinding tools can be used together with concrete grinders to help remove the upper surface of a concrete floor surface so as to expose the underlying aggregate and prepare the concrete for a polished finish. One of the grinding tools that is commonly attached to concrete grinders is diamond grit wheels.

If you are considering grinding concrete floor surfaces with these wheels, you will need to first find out why their use is so widespread. Here are a number of crucial perks associated with grinding with a diamond-segmented wheel.

Diamond wheels are reliable working tools.

It takes something stronger and tougher than hardened concrete to grind the surface of a concrete floor. One of the materials that meets this requirement is diamond. Thanks to diamond's superior reserve of strength, diamond wheels can cut through concrete without losing its initial form and/or shape. Therefore, those operating concrete grinders equipped with diamond wheels do not have to worry about grits of diamond coming off the wheels during grinding operations.

Diamond wheels can cut with a high level of accuracy.

Diamond wheels are designed to cut through concrete with great accuracy. All it takes to attain neat and accurate cuts is correct wheel selection and good concrete grinding practices and techniques. This, of course, calls for expert handling of the job. Needless to say, machine operators must also put in place measures to minimise distortion of concrete material, including monitoring vibration levels and complying with the cutting depth requirements.

Diamond wheels allow for both wet and dry grinding.

Different operating conditions call for different working techniques. When it comes to concrete grinding with diamond wheels, two working techniques can be used — wet grinding and dry grinding. As both methods can ensure suppression of concrete dust generated during grinding operations, the choice of an appropriate working technique depends upon your preference.

The use of diamond tooling in concrete grinding applications is not new in the concrete construction industry, but it has certainly been steadily growing in popularity over the years. Hopefully, you're now convinced that using diamond wheels to grind your concrete floors is a smart decision.
