A well thought out plan and design may be the most critical part of a successful project. Laney’s in-house expertise engineering will help you design a safer, more economic trenchless crossing.


Thorough constructible trenchless designs can greatly reduce construction costs during installation. This includes a proper geotechnical investigation providing the necessary data for a more effective result. Hydraulic fracture and inadvertent return (HFIR) analysis will also aid in the design and help mitigate the potential for inadvertent returns during construction. Additionally, the advance planning of temporary workspace, water supply, and drilling fluid management will also make a sizable impact on the success of your project. Good designs don’t cost money, they save money!
