In many cases, existing concrete can become damaged and need repairing without damaging healthy concrete or steel reinforcements in the process, to achieve this we can use hydrodemolition to stop the spread of concrete cancer or repair cracked concrete using a technique known as guniting.
Concrete reinforcements over time can experience corrosion which can lead to a concrete structure being unsafe. To inspect the level of corrosion we can remove the surrounding concrete with hydrodemolition without damaging the reinforcements further and expose them for repair.
Types of Hydrodemolition
We specialise in two forms of hydrodemolition, hand lancing hydrodemolition and robotic hydrodemolition.
Hand Lancing Hydrodemolition
Hand lancing hydrodemolition is used by our operators on smaller demolition projects or where access is restricted and requires a more precise form of demolition. In all our hydrodemolition projects we only use high-pressure water, so there are no toxic chemicals involved.
In more hazardous projects we use the Conjet Jetframe 101 Nalta, which is the world’s smallest hydrodemolition robot, this allows us to complete demolition jobs at a safe distance without risking the lives of operators. Our robotic hydrodemolition service also uses only water, so there are no toxic chemicals involved.

Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question? We’re here to help
What is hydrodemolition?
Hydrodemolition involves using high-pressure water jets to clean, remove or demolish concrete, asphalt or grout. Hydrodemolition can be used to remove unwanted structures or to prepare a surface for repair work.
How does hydrodemolition work?
Rather than use traditional tools such as a jackhammer, Hydrodemolition uses high-pressure water jets to cut through concrete. This provides a more accurate demolition than you could achieve with a jackhammer.
What are the benefits of hydrodemolition?
Hydrodemolition doesn’t involve any chemicals, it’s more environmentally-friendly, it’s quicker and safer than traditional techniques for removing concrete.
