The backbone of our company is the installation of private and public utility networks. Our grassroots lie in the power (hydro utility) and telecommunications sectors; however, over the years we have grown to cover a wider range of utilities including water, sewer, railroad utilities, site servicing and renewable energy. Within these sectors, work is completed employing a wide range of installation techniques, although we specialize in projects involving trenchless construction such as horizontal directional drilling, plowing, guided boring and/or pipe bursting.
