Non Destructive Digging (NDD)

We utilise the latest hydro excavation equipment when performing non-destructive digging (NDD) around buried services, efficiently eliminating the risk of damage.

More and more so, Under Road Boring and Underground Infrastructure is moving towards Non Destructive Digging with the use of Hydro Excavation and Vacuum Trucks. Using a Suck Truck / Vac Truck / Hydro Excavation enables us to locate services. We bore holes, dig trenches in and around services in an efficient and safe way which eliminates the risk of damage.

Using the power of water, our qualified operators direct a high-power stream of water to blast through dirt, clay and hard ground.  While another component is used to vacuum up or suck up the slurry or waste to have a low impact on the environment.

Benefits of hydro excavation

Using a Vacuum truck is a very fast, clean and efficient way to expose underground services and the hydro excavation method completes the work without running the risk of damaging any of them. This very important, particularly around cable and optic fibre that our vac truck service provides low risk to connections to our communications system, conduit and pipes that contain our power, water and gas networks.
