In civil construction vacuum excavation is setting the standard for safe efficient working practices. Due to congestion and underground infrastructure in cities, vacuum excavation minimizes the risk of damaging utilities which positions are often inaccurately marked or unknown. Intake hoses can reach to wherever the work needs to be done, making it much simpler than conventional equipment which is heavy and consumes plenty of needed space. The process is fast, precise and because the material being removed is being pumped into a container or piped off-site there is much less clean-up in the working area. Suction excavation eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming manual labour making the process safer and positively affecting the projects bottom line.
