Vacuum excavation uses high-pressure water jets to break up solid ground, whether it’s sand or clay, rocks or soil and simultaneously vacuums the debris away, into a holding tank, for disposal after a job is completed.
It provides a safeguard against hitting or damaging underground assets and allows you to see what is beneath the soil surface prior to commencing a full excavation or installation.
This is a non-invasive, cost effective and accurate way to locate underground utilities prior to excavation and reduces the risk associated with damaging these assets. It also allows pot-holing to occur with minimal impact to the streetscape, reducing disruption to traffic flows and other surface activities.
Vacuum excavation is a less invasive, cost effective and accurate alternative to manual excavation. It removes the risk of damaging underground utilities or disrupting essential services and avoids the financial liabilities associated with damaging assets. It also reduces the risk of injury to personnel from strikes by service’s cabling (particularly power) and minimises the OH&S and environmental risks associated with deep excavation.
Vacuum excavation is a cost effective solution for exposing assets in confined spaces, built up areas and in congested traffic spots. It can be performed in all weather conditions and operators can dig with precision, offering a less invasive way to uncover pipelines, phone lines and fibre optics, to excavate for signs and signals and remove debris from manholes.
Vacuum excavation is a much faster process than manual digging as our machines complete the task in one simple process! By eliminating unnecessary digging and machinery movement, manpower requirements are reduced, which saves time and money, meaning your project is on-time and cost-efficient!
Vacuum excavation breaks up solid ground while simultaneously vacuuming all debris into a holding tank for disposal on completion of the job. This results in minimal impact to our streetscape and stops soil entering the storm water system. The result is a clear hole to work with and a clean work site.
