Diamond Saw Cutting, Joint Sealing and Pavement Marking


As part of the new helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) in the Highlands, Roadgrip was contracted to help complete the new Air Ambulance facility at Inverness Airport in Scotland.

Our client needed a quick turnaround so we quickly pulled together our multi-skilled crew who could handle each aspect of the project. Our airfield maintenance and surfacing teams have many years’ experience dealing with pavement markings and civil engineering, and they promptly prepared all the necessary equipment to travel north.

When the team arrived, we immediately began with the diamond saw cutting to form the pavement joints before sealing the joints using fuel-resistant sealant. We then prepared and blasted the PQ concrete surface (this helps the surface to accept the paint for better application and longevity) before painting the helicopter parking pad, car park markings and block paving.

We mobilised from the south on Bank Holiday Monday, arrived mid afternoon on the Tuesday, completed the cutting (wet works) on the Tuesday evening, completed all other works on the Wednesday and were home in time for tea on Thursday!
