Know before you dig, without the damage

Construction work of all kinds can end up being a lottery when there are underground services involved, and while there’s no way you can afford the hassle and the potential fines and legal trouble involved in damaging services, it’s not always possible to excavate either.

Whether it’s a difficult or dangerous area to dig, a confined space, or a pre-existing arrangement with the client, destructive digging is always undesirable and could also be impossible for your site. So how do you find out where the services are and what they look like without digging them up? That’s where non-destructive digging comes in.

Non destructive digging is keyhole surgery for your site

The trick to exposing the services that you need to avoid on your project, but without disturbing or destroying the existing site, is Hydro-Vacuum Excavation. Using this technique we can blast away earth and debris using high pressure water jets underground in a way that will expose the utilities that you wish to preserve, but without damaging them. Thanks to our industry-leading technology, we can use exactly the right pressure to easily dispose of dirt without damaging even the thinnest and most delicate phone lines.

Once dislodged, the earth is then sucked to the surface using high powered vacuums, without leaving any mess or disturbance. Whatever the size of each service, from banks of conduits all the way to individual cables and wires for any purpose, we guarantee that we can carry out our work with no damage to any vital systems underground.
