Comprehensive Tunneling Services:
Augering, Boring, Pipejacking and More
For over three decades, CT Underground has helped clients across Alberta and Western Canada install and replace pipeline/ utility services at active crossings where excavation is not a practical or feasible option. This includes construction projects involving installations across highway, railway, utility and pipeline crossings.
Based on your project objectives, grade requirements and geology, CT Underground will recommend the most practical solution. Our tunneling solutions include: Horizontal Auger Boring, Guided Boring, Down The Hole Hammer, Pneumatic Pipe Ramming, Slip Boring, Surface Casing and Tunnel Boring.
Tunnel boring machines are used to excavate tunnels through a variety of different geologies. They can be used to bore through hard rock or sand or almost anything in between.Read more
Many underground utility lines have become old and require replacement. A substantial amount of the underground lines have been in place for decades.Read more
Horizontal auger boring is a steerable, trenchless method which uses a surface rig to install a variety of pipes ,conduits and cables underground.Read more
Pneumatic Pipe Ramming
This method of installation is achieved by hammering a steel pipe through the ground. After the hammer shot is successfully completed the spoil is removed entirely.Read more
Pipe Jacking is primarily used to install large diameter concrete pipe directly into the ground. The tunnel can be excavated using a variety of methods such as hand mining or a tunnel boring machine.Read more
How it works
CT Undeground has developed a custom built Horizontal augering machine for large diameter boring. Our equipment can be used to install 48inch diameter pipe, see our demonstration video on the right.
Horizontal Augering is a steerable, trenchless method which uses a small excavation to install a variety of pipes ,conduits and cables underground. From utility installation to fluid movement to flood abatement, this method is used to minimize traffic disruption, ground disturbance, and environmental impact.(source: CalgaryTunnelling.com
