When new ductwork and cables were required in Renfrewshire, Scotland, our Vacuum Excavation expertise were called upon to safely and efficiently complete the project.
The job entailed lifting up 2 types of road and pavements and then digging to a depth of 700mm in order to accommodate the new cables. As plans showed existing gas, electric and telecommunication lines, a no-dig Vacuum Excavation approach was requested in order to safely remove the ground material away without risking damage to the existing utilities or to cause a service strike.
With the assistance of an air lance, all the ground materials were swiftly excavated to provide the engineers with much needed access to install new lines.
