Directional Boring, commonly called horizontal drilling or HDD, is a steerable trench-less method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area. Directional boring is one of the most popular methods of conduit installation today and the only choice when trenching or excavating is not practical.
The procedure of a reliable and safe directional drilling job starts with the proper planning. LBS Engineers study the work site and the scope of the job. We contact the customer to ensure they are aware of the process. We mark the proposed route with white paint and order the “locate and mark” service of any existent utility in the area.
All utility crossings are pot holed and exposed to ensure the safety of the drilling. Customer property and restoration are our main concern. Every measure will be taken to restore the customer premise to the previous conditions or better.
The number one objective during the execution of the job is safety. Our safety procedure has been designed to comply with OSHA requirements as well as minimum requirements of our customers.
