Directional Drilling Overview

Horizontal Directional Drilling is a trench-less method of installing piping and cable systems underground by the use of highly specialized drilling equipment.

Minimizing the environmental impact on the surrounding area, Horizontal Directional Drilling is best suited to applications where traditional trenching or excavating is either not practical or otherwise impossible.

Installing piping, conduit or cabling underground via horizontal directional drilling is quickly becoming the preferred method of underground installation, worldwide – Providing a host of benefits from sheer speed to less noise and ecological disturbance.


  • Virtually no restoration costs and higher productivity in comparison to trenching
  • Less noise and pollution
  • Less environmental disruption
  • Can install under immovable objects or obstacles such as buildings, bodies of water, railways and highways
  • Less public disruption for the public and traffic
