Project Highlight – Hydro Excavating used for trenching inside the basement of this Historical Retirement home in Lancaster, PA Vacuum excavation is ideal when access to the dig site is restricted due to overhead clearances, structural congestion, physical obstruction, narrow access road, or unstable soil conditions.
This is why vacuum technology is typically used in historical buildings, especially basements. Because of this, we get to work on many old buildings and this recent project was a real pleasure.
Brought onto this project by an electrical contractor, we used air excavation to help confirm multiple existing utilities in the way of the pole install design.
Our trucks are not only powerful and high tech, but they also have a specific cool factor. We’re truck geeks here at EcoTech and we’re so impressed with the ability of our high-powered GapVax VH-55 and HV-56 trucks that we wanted to highlight six things that make these machines so unique.
When an electrical contractor contacted us to help them with a project at a Steel Plant in Coatesville, PA our team was up for the task!
Hydro Excavating was needed to trench, expose and repair an electric primary conduit. The area was too congested underground for traditional mechanical equipment, and so hand digging would have been required in this situation.
From preparation for installing new lines to regular maintenance and emergency repair, hydro excavation’s surgical accuracy and its rapid vacuum capability prove to be remarkably valuable for plumbing applications.
