We provide horizontal directional drilling for businesses and communities needing to lay cable without disturbing the surface above.
As the country moves toward underground utilities, one of the biggest challenges is putting in cables where the infrastructure is already in place. It was one thing to string telephone lines across our unpopulated country a century ago; it is quite another to deal with multi-lane highways, parking lots, and other things in the way. That is why horizontal directional drilling has become the most popular way to accomplish underground fiber installation, as well as underground phone and power cable installation.
At GP Associates, Inc., as a premier boring contractor serving the eastern seaboard, our team headquartered in Knightdale, North Carolina is equipped to mobilize and provide horizontal directional drilling for businesses and communities needing to lay cable without disturbing the surface above. The horizontal directional drilling process involves boring down to the desired depth taking into consideration such factors as frost line and the location of other cabling and then creating a tunnel to the other side.
It can prove far more cost effective to employ horizontal directional drilling than to excavate concrete, haul it away, and repour new concrete. When you factor in traffic disruptions, even the past standard of trenching isn’t as favorable a method as what can be accomplished with horizontal directional drilling. We offer a variety of other services that can help make your project go smoothly, so don’t hesitate to reach out early in your project to get our assistance.
If you have questions about horizontal directional drilling or would like to arrange a consultation to discuss your project, feel free to give us a call.
