Trenchless Technology

The use of Trenchless Technology for the installation of new, or the replacement or refurbishment of existing buried utilities have become well accepted over the past 25 years.

Today the techniques have become readily accepted and are often referred to as No-Dig or Limited Dig. They are now not only associated with reduced disturbance to the surrounding ground surface of a specific project, but are also seen as cost saving, and environmentally friendly with benefits including; reduced excavation size, lower infill and landfill requirements, increased safety, less noise and traffic disruption and much more.
