Excavation & Trenching
PDI Construction specializes in trenching and excavation. Our experience ranges from mass excavations and deep trenching in complex urban environments such as downtown Phoenix to long-haul trenching projects in rural communities. Our customers include general contractors, electrical contractors, utility providers, telecommunications providers, federal contractors and government entities including cities, counties and departments of transportation. It is through these long-standing relationships that we have built our experience in a variety of market sectors, including hospitals, data centers, sports facilities, municipal developments, high rise office sites and a vast array of other unique projects.
- Directional Boring
PDI Construction has a long history of providing safe, powerful and environmentally friendly methods for subsurface construction. Directional Boring (aka Horizontal Directional Drilling or HDD) allows PDI to install infrastructure under roads, waterways, congested areas, existing structures and environmentally sensitive areas with minimal disruption. This method of infrastructure construction may be applied as a cost-effective and efficient alternative to open-cut trenching. Directional boring also results in minimal traffic disruption and may significantly reduce restoration costs.
Utility Potholing – Vacuum Excavation – SUE
- Subsurface Utility Engineering
- GPS Pothole Reports
Vacuum excavation (soft dig) is the leading technology using kinetic energy in a high velocity air or water stream to penetrate, expand, and break up soil. The result is increased production and reduced cost. In addition, there are added safety benefits for both the operator and utilities. Vacuum excavation is the clear choice for safe and efficient locating of underground utilities. PDI Construction has Arizona’s largest fleet of state-of-the-art vacuum excavation trucks. Our vacuum excavation and utility potholing customers include general contractors, utility companies, communications providers and municipalities.
- Survey Services
- Utility Locating Services
Utility Locating is the process of identifying and labeling public utility mains that are underground. These mains may include lines for telecommunication, electricity distribution, natural gas, cable television, fiber optics, traffic lights, street lights, storm drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes. In some locations, major oil and gas pipelines, national defense communication lines, mass transit, rail and road tunnels also compete for space underground.
- Slot Trenching
- Utility Pole Holes
- Service Pits
PDI Construction offers hydro excavation services for fast, non-destructive excavation. Hydro excavation is a process utilizing pressurized water to penetrate, expand and break up soil. The use of water to locate underground utilities is considerably safer than using a backhoe or other method. This avoids striking underground utility lines, cables and pipes. Hydro Excavation applications include:
- Utility location, installation and repair
- Sewer & pipe restoration
- Slot Trenching
- Horizontal directional drilling
- Sign & pole installation
