Our Premier Services

Our specialized services are designed to meet a wide range of needs, ensuring safety, efficiency, and reliability in every task. Here’s a closer look at what we offer:

Hydro Excavation

Employing pressurized water and vacuum technology, our hydro excavation service offers a non-destructive and precise method for soil excavation. This process minimizes disruption to the surrounding area, making it ideal for sensitive environments.

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

HDD is a trenchless solution allowing us to install underground pipes, conduits, and cables with minimal impact on the surface above. It’s an efficient method, especially suited for urban areas or environmentally sensitive regions.


Our potholing services, also known as daylighting, involve safely exposing underground utilities for inspection or repairs. This ensures accurate data for planning and reduces the risk of damage during construction phases.

Pipe Bursting

An effective method for replacing old or damaged pipelines, pipe bursting allows us to insert a new pipe while fragmenting the old one, all without the need for extensive trenching.

Micro Trenching

Our micro trenching service is designed for the rapid deployment of fiber optic cables. It involves creating small, precise trenches along roads or sidewalks, minimizing disruption to traffic and the public.

Hydro Vac

The Hydro Vac process uses high-pressure water to break up soil, which is then vacuumed up into a debris tank, providing a clean and efficient excavation method.

Pipe Splitting

This trenchless technology is an excellent method for replacing existing pipes with minimal surface disruption. It splits the old pipe while simultaneously pulling in a new one.

Trenchless Sewer Repair

Our trenchless sewer repair solutions offer a less invasive alternative to traditional sewer line repair methods, significantly reducing the time and cost of sewer maintenance.

Directional Boring

Similar to HDD, directional boring is a stealthy approach to installing underground utilities without disturbing the surface, perfect for crossing under obstacles like rivers or buildings.
