A first hand look at our recent vacuum excavation works on Brisbanes southside. This project has been operating day and night with multiple services being undertaken including utility locating, potholing & strip trenching.

In this video, we show you the complete process of potholing for underground utilities. ⚒ It begins with the locator marking the ground of the areas in question, vaccuum excavation then begins until the utility is exposed. The surveyor then moves in to mark the locations via GPS and ground re-instatement soon follows.
