Non-Destructive Excavation

Non-Destructive Excavation Sydney

Non-destructive Excavation is a process that combines high-pressurised water and a vacuum to break up and cut soil at a controlled rate. This is a safe method, without causing any unnecessary damage to existing underground utilities or
potential historical artefacts.

How Does Non-Destructive Excavation Work?

Non-Destruction Excavation (Non-Destructive Digging), is also known as hydro excavation, it works by blasting soil or other surfaces with highly pressurised water and air. The high-pressure mimics the effect of mechanical digging, however, it doesn’t impact the surrounding area, underground assets, or tree roots which is why it is known as non-destructive.


Benefits of Non-Destructive Excavation

Construction, utility, and maintenance projects often prefer Non-Destructive Excavation as a safer, more precise, and less disruptive alternative to traditional excavation methods.



Choose OzDetect

As a result of this non-destructive excavation, underground pipes, cables, and other utilities are significantly less likely to be damaged than with traditional digging methods. Because of Sydney’s complex underground infrastructure and the need for accurate, safe, and efficient excavation methods, NDE is widely used in construction, civil engineering, and utility maintenance projects.
