DIRECTIONAL DRILLING SERVICES

Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig.
Directional drilling is used when trenching or excavating is not practical or too expensive. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and jobs including road, landscape, and river crossings.

In the past, the presence of rock prevented the use of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) for most underground utility construction. Drilling in rock required large drill rigs with mud motors together with costly support equipment to run them. Recent developments in HDD technologies now allow midsize drilling equipment to effectively drill and steer through rock.
Non-Destructive Digging (NDD) has become the preferred method of excavation within the construction industry. By safely breaking up soil using air or water, the risk of damage to underground utilities is vastly reduced, when compared to manual or mechanical digging methods.
This process requires less backfill, labour and restoration and can safely expose existing underground services without causing unnecessary damage.
NDD services can be conducted near and around – water networks, telecommunications, power or gas lines with minimal risk and without any potential damage to these underground assets.
