The more we present on the topics of trenchless technologies we find that there is a lack of knowledge among the owners and consultant engineers of British Columbia. PW Trenchless under the leadership of David O Sullivan has had a program for the last 5 years where he is willing to present at a "Lunch and Learn" at your offices on all of the various methods of trenchless.
This comprises of 3 to 5 slides on each of the various disciplines being used in BC and who the various contractors are. The purpose of this presentation is not to teach but to inform your staff of what is available in BC and in what direction to look in when faced with a problem.
David then encourages your staff to take proper CEU certified courses in the various disciplines so they may move forward in these fields." Please contact the office for further information, and we will be delighted to present to your staff.
PW Trenchless has recently finished 7 bursts through a wooded are next to Kanaka Creek Park in Maple Ridge.
A full report is coming soon.

PW Trenchless Construction LTD. is featured in Canadian Underground Infrastructure magazine
We were...the first to perform microtunnelling in B.C. in 1996, on Clark Drive in Vancouver...
the first to install an extensive sanitary sewer system, 4500m by directional drilling at flat grades in Queensborough from 1994 to 1999 for the City of New Westminster...
the first to install a large diameter sewer (36" diameter) in Surrey, also on a flat grade in 1999 for the METRO Vancouver.
We have been pipe bursting since 1996, completing our first work for the City of New Westminster. We have completed contracts for the many other cities see list below.
PW Trenchless was founded in Jam 2000 and continues to grow to be a leader in Trenchless Construction in British Columbia. Trenchless Construction is a term used to describe various methods used to install new or replace older utilities. Underground utilities (water, sewers, gas, power communications etc.) are what separate us from the 3rd world. Without clean drinking water and sewage disposal we would have lifespans of 40+ years.
Various studies have shown that Trenchless construction methods are 25 to 60% cheaper than conventional open cut methods.

PW Trenchless Construction has been active in writing and researching articles for various construction magazines. Trenchless Technology Magazine and Website offer a large amount of info on all trenchless technology.
PW Trenchless has been a leader in promoting the link between the use of trenchless construction and a low Carbon footprint. We developed a carbon calculator http://utilitycarboncalculator.com/EmissionCalculator.html to allow designers to compare the various types of utility construction and the carbon impacts of those methods. We are now in the final stages of having a protocol accepted by the government of British Columbia to allow carbon offsets from a cities trenchless program. This will be a world first.

Reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions is smart business, good for the environment - and soon to be legislated.
It is critical to replace aging infrastructure while minimizing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change. The construction industry will soon find its allowable emissions to be strictly regulated with the emergence of new legislation. Trenchless technology can drastically reduce GHG emissions compared to open cut excavations (90% on average) and provide significant cost savings (25-50%) and minimize disruptions to local traffic and businesses
