One of our vehicles was called out to assist with a unique Vacuum Excavation project taking place in a car park. The ground mesh contained compact soil and weeds which needed to be removed in order for new stones to be put down.
With a decision lying in the contractor’s hands, the idea of hiring a Vacuum Excavator was decided upon but could our Vac-Ex excavate all the debris?
After running a trial on-site to decide whether the Vacuum Excavator’s strong suction power could excavate without pulling up the mesh along with the soil, the team struck gold (not literally!). In just 2 days, the Vacuum Excavator completed the entire car park area which would have taken the contractors an entire week to do. From then, the stone could be used to refill and reinforce the car park’s ground.
The precision, no-dig approach eliminates almost all risk regarding strikes to the service lines. There are up to 60,000 services every year (Clyde & Co) with an average costing of £7,000 per strike (USAG). Vacuum Excavation is not only the safest method, but also the smartest and most economically friendly.
