Why is Directional Drilling Better than Trenching and Excavating?
More organisations have been turning to Horizontal Directional Drilling, as opposed to traditional trenching and excavating. Here are some of the most notable distinctions our services have from traditional methods.
Minimal Surface Disturbance
There will be no need to remove and reinstate large amounts of dirt and soil. This is one of the problems faced by traditional trenchers when working on sites with established structures and environment-sensitive elements.
Most of the actual work is happening underground, meaning that operational continuity is less dependent on the weather above. Directional drilling can even continue under unfavourable weather conditions.
Needs Less Labour
With less equipment needed, there will also be a smaller requirement for staffing. With a small team of technicians and specialists, costs are cut, and site safety is implemented easier.
Suitable for Complicated Sites
Without the invasive process of trenching, sensitive sites, such as landscaped lots, busy roads and critical infrastructure can be worked on underneath, with minimal environmental restrictions.
