Hire a suction excavator

What is Suction Excavation?

Excavation is a necessary part of below-ground construction. It’s primarily used to create building foundations, but is also commonly needed during the laying and maintenance of below-ground pipe and cable systems.

It’s one of the more risky aspects of civil engineering and can be both costly and disruptive so there have, over the years, been a number of innovations designed to improve the effectiveness of the excavation process whilst minimising its environmental impact and reducing cost across the board. 

One such innovation was that of vacuum excavation, a relatively new technique designed to improve excavation speed whilst reducing associated health and safety risks. Instead of using machinery to haul out soil, a high powered suction system is instead employed to remove all unwanted materials, both solid and liquid, from the excavation site.
