Our Expertise in Railway Services

Why blast when we can bore? Ranging from 12”-22” diameter and a 12’ depth, our rock boring equipment allows utility pole installation in bedrock at a fraction of the cost of rock mounting or blasting.


Just say where. No terrain is inaccessible, no environment is too sensitive for our horizontal directional drill team to use their integrity and state-of-the-art equipment to get the results you need and the job done right.

Our thermal cameras are here to find anomalies before costly failures impact your service. For power generation, transmission and distribution,. Infrared thermography has become the core of utility predictive maintenance around the world.


Sometimes sensitivity is required. If your utility is located in a municipal right-of-way, our hydrovac system let’s us do excavation and drilling without damaging existing fibre optic, gas and energized power lines.
