Underground Utilities

Any contractor can put a stick of pipe in the ground, but after that pipe is covered and out of sight, it must withstand the test of decades.  In order to withstand that test, underground utilities must be installed with laser precise accuracy, using advanced instruments to project grades on distant markers.  Berger crews install miles upon miles of pipe every year with just that precision.  These pipe sizes range from one inch to 96 inches and include water distribution, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer.  Regardless of the size or type all pipe receives the same attention to detail as the next.

Underground utility installation is one of Berger’s specialties; with crew capabilities ranging from open field pipe installation to complex urban reconstruction projects.  With the ability to directional drill, in addition to televise and jet sewers, Berger provides a single solution for underground utility installation and reconstruction.

Berger has completed just about every kind of job with our direction drilling equipment.  By staying on top of the latest technological solutions, we have the equipment and experience necessary to install the pipe right where it needs to be.  Landscaping, heavily wooded areas, paved surfaces and other obstacles can remain untouched without digging at the surface.  The use of directional drilling results in reduced cost, time, and disruption the surrounding area.

In this demanding field, Berger is noted for speed, safety, and uncompromised quality.  Some of the specialized utility installations include the following:

  • Box culverts and creek diversions
  • Storm Trap storm water detention systems
  • Emergency municipal main repairs
  • Waste water treatment plants
