Drilling through buried utilities is dangerous and expensive. Locating all underground utilities and other subsurface structures is not always possible as some utilities are non-conductive or masked by fill material in the surrounding soil.
EDGE DRILLING operates a fleet of vacuum excavation (also known as Non-Destructive Digging – NDD) trailers and trucks to pre-clear drilling locations prior to intrusive works.
We can pre-clear drilling locations to as deep as three metres below ground depending on the subsurface conditions. We use trailer-mounted vacuum excavation units or truck units depending on the size of the job and whether the site has tight access or not. In addition to pre-clearing drill locations, we can also undertake trenching and set shallow wells.
