Vacuum Excavation with a Qualified Electrical Tradesman

Efficiency through Expertise


Service Locations

Vacuum excavated a trench through existing underground services to install an electrical conduit.

Locating underground assets, such as electricity, gas, fibre optic, etc, can be difficult even with up to date records. By using our services, we can excavate the ground exposing all underground assets, while protecting their integrity.

Excavation, Trenching and Pole Holes

Vacuum excavation around live electrical services, including Live High and Low Voltage cables.

Using Vacuum Excavation, also known as Non-Destructive Digging (NDD), we can excavate, trench and pot-hole in any location knowing that any underground asset will be safe from damage. Some sites only allow NDD, as the risk from traditional excavation cannot be mitigated any other way.

Tunnelling under Driveways, Footpaths, Trees, etc

Tunnel bored under a driveway to install conduits.

By using Hydrovac technology, we have the ability to tunnel-bore under driveways, footpaths, trees and other structures for the installation of conduits or other equipment.
