Utilities such as gas, electricity, and telecommunications all require upgrades at some point in your building’s lifespan. Sometimes, those upgrades require an entirely new set of cables and hardware.
You may need directional boring when you need an infrastructural lift. This drilling method uses machines to install conduits for various utilities underground without tearing up large pieces of land.
Trenching vs. Directional Boring
For structures set in a rural area or surrounded by large amounts of flat, open land, trenching is the best method of burying cables. In these locations, lots of equipment and miles of turned-up ground don’t cause as much mess as in a well-populated area. In addition, the earth is usually softer and more efficient to remove and replace than sidewalks, roads, or paved paths.
If your structure is located in an urban area, and the project only requires smaller wires and cables to be tunneled underground, then directional boring may be the right choice. Our technology can drill around utility lines already in place, so you don’t need to worry about causing more problems than you solve.
