Non Destructive Excavations Australia (NDEA) is the preferred subterranean safety specialist that protects underground infrastructure. The NDEA team have worked on small and large-scale projects to detect subsurface utilities, ultimately protecting them from the planned works and future developments. Working with purpose-built machines and equipment, the team of industry specialists have provided construction builders, project managers, and town planners the transparency to safely assess any underground environment before any earth is turned.

What is non destructive excavation (potholing)?

Throughout any construction project or major works, it is critical that the earth foundation is viable and that any subsurface utilities are known and factored into the works. Non destructive excavation in Sydney, also known as Potholing, is one of the most effective measures to expose subsurface infrastructures, using high-pressure water to blast the area for a safer way to inspect a site. When the water creates a slurry consistency of the previously hard earth, a powerful vacuum system will extract the earth into a large truck tank so that underground services are more visible and accessible.

Why is it important to use a Sydney non destructive excavation company?

If you have not heard of ‘Dial Before You Dig’ Sydney services before, you might be wondering what value there is to complete this work before starting a project. A non destructive excavation service ensures that no water network, telecommunications, power or gas lines are unintentionally damaged through the process of a dig, mitigating risk to the construction team and damage to the services. Deploying a non destructive excavation also reduces noise pollution and the overall impact on the local environment, while ensuring the surrounding materials remain intact.

Working with NDEA on a project will ensure:

    • Project delivery is adhered to
    • The projected timeline is honoured as subsurface utilities are known and factored
    • Avoiding budget blowouts due to unforeseen damage
    • Local environment and community are protected from noise and service cut-outs
