Trenchless Technology Advantages

AUI has over 22 years experience in trenchless pipe replacement.  Because of our extensive knowledge, technical skills, and project experience in both pipe bursting and slip-lining, AUI is a leading trenchless services provider in the southwest.
Advantages of trenchless pipe replacement:
  • Lower cost than open cut construction
    • Less labor
    • Less equipment
    • Less surface restoration
  • Faster replacement process than open cut construction
  • Minimizes or eliminates roadway closures and traffic control issues
  • Minimizes the potential for damage to existing utilities through excavation
