The Legacy Way project in Brisbane saw Hitech engaged in a range of services including Cold Cutting of pre stressed anchors. The method of Cold Cutting was used on this project due the anchors being injected with a highly flammable water proofing substance, this didn’t allow for the contractor to use the normal method of de stressing the anchors.
Hitech utilised its cold cutting equipment to cut through high tensile strands. There were a total of 7 cables and each cable had 7 strands which were encased in a 250mm diameter casing. All 7 cables were cut including the case all the way through whilst the cables were still stressed.
