Ensure Non Destructive Excavations with Hydro or Vacuum Truck Excavations on the Gold Coast
At On Point Locating, our entire business is built around helping contractors, builders, and property owners ensure non-destructive excavations of their land. By helping you locate pipes and underground utility lines before you dig or excavate a plot of land, we help reduce the risk of hitting and damaging a line in the process.
Our first step is usually to provide a survey and map of the property, with utility locations marked and detailed. These resources should be used in the design of a project, preferably to keep excavations far away from pipes or underground utilities. In some cases, though, excavations will need to get close to underground assets. In such cases, we can provide hydro excavations on the Gold Coast to guarantee a safe dig.
What Is a Hydro Excavation?
‘Non destructive excavations,’ ‘hydro excavations’ and ‘vacuum excavations’ are all essentially synonyms for the same thing. A hydro excavation uses pressurised water to move and remove soil on and around utilities. Using a vacuum truck, the excavators can remove the soil or debris and transfer it to a separate debris tank. This process keeps the debris out of the way, exposing utilities so that builders can access or use them.
At On Point Locating, we have a vacuum truck On The Gold Coast and can perform effective hydro excavations. Because we have the correct equipment for this job, we can perform utility excavations very quickly, exposing underground assets with which you or your contractors can work. The water and vacuum systems make short work of soil, but don’t damage metal, concrete, nylon or plastic utilities.
When to Call for a Non Destructive Excavation
You will likely need a hydro excavation on the Gold Coast if you are going to be working on or near utilities. Many utility providers require contractors to use hydro excavating if they work within a certain distance of underground assets. Only accredited contractors can perform this work. On Point Locating is one such accredited contractor. With a vacuum truck On The Gold Coast, we can work with any business or property owner to perform non destructive hydro excavations.
Even if you think you can safely dig around a utility installation, the fact is that you never know. Regardless of whether you know the location of a utility line precisely, working around that line with a shovel or a piece of construction equipment is just too dangerous. Hydro excavations are the only safe option.
So, don’t risk the wrath of your utility provider by damaging a water main, gas line or Internet cable. Instead, give us a call at On Point Locating and let us from a non destructive excavation that will appease your utility company. We will expose the underground asset carefully, giving you the freedom to work around that asset without worrying about cutting, puncturing or otherwise damaging it. Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment and our skilled team of contractors, we are confident that we can perform an excavation while keeping your utilities intact.
