AZ Connect provides open cut trenching solutions to meet project requirements and exceed environmental standards. Our highly trained and experienced team provides a safe and efficient service based on the intended outcome and scope of your project.
Open cut trenching involves excavating a trench to install or repair existing pipes or conduit along with other infrastructure. We deliver tailored services based on surface materials, conduit or pipe placement, and environmental needs. We will assess your project and provide you with detailed advice and excavation solutions.
- In a non‐pavement area, the excavation can be backfilled and the surface vegetation can be restored.
- When located under pavement, materials are removed, the area is filled, and the pavement is replaced.
Open cut trenching is ideal for collapsed pipes, severely broken pipes, and heavy root blockages. This method can be less expensive than trenchless methods in non‐pavement areas, as roots and debris don’t have to be removed.
At AZ Connect, our trained and experienced team has advanced EWP (Elevated Work Platform) skills and certification. We have a high-risk work license as detailed in units of competency by the National Training and Information Service (NTIS). EWP certification is a recognised standard by SafeWork NSW and other state and territory regulators.
At AZ Connect, we can locate underground cables and repair blockages using advanced geophysical detection. We utilise electromagnetic tracing, underground service locating, and ground penetrating radar (GPR) prior to digging activity. Following inspection, we make detailed plans and carry out mechanical excavation and drilling to access the underground location.
We ensure accurate subsurface utility information from the beginning of each project. This gives us the ability to complete work on time, within budget, and with greatly improved risk management.
We deal with the following underground cables:
- High and low voltage electricity cables
- Street lighting and roads cables
- Mains and sub-main cables
- Earth and ground wires
- Fibre optic, NBN, and communication cables
- Irrigation control solenoid cables
We specialise in finding and repairing blockages, including CCTV pipe inspection, conduit sealing, and high-pressure water jets. Depending on the scenario, both cold and hot water units can be utilised to clear pipe blockages.
We offer remediation services for road crossings, footpaths, and driveways. We can demolish existing footpaths, road crossings, and driveways without affecting nearby services. We provide compacting and concrete pouring services, and deliver consistent solutions that match existing finishes.
We deliver construction and asset management solutions for roadside equipment cabinets. We work with New South Wales traffic and transport departments to implement new Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). Our work includes the deployment of dynamic speed zones, active lane management, ramp metering, traveller information systems, e-tolling, and other well-established systems. Our complete process covers everything from installation to commissioning and testing.
Hydro and vacuum excavation is a safe and efficient excavation technique with a wide range of applications. This form of material extraction is faster, safer, and more cost-effective than traditional digging.
At AZ Connect, we have expertise in the following use case scenarios:
- Potholing – non-destructive and safe digging close to underground infrastructure
- Slot trenching – digging narrow trenches for the installation of pipes, cables, and utilities
- Mass removal – safe and efficient way to remove materials and expose underground utilities
- Debris removal – removal of sludge and debris to clean specific materials without impact
- Utility Location – used to excavate utilities in ultra-tight spaces with minimal impact and restoration
