We integrate our in-house engineering expertise and construction experience to perform our projects safely.

What Does Trenchless Engineering Do?

Our integrated approach to trenchless engineering leverages our construction experience to design HDD crossings that are optimized to reduce construction risk. 

Trenchless Design Services

  • Targeted subsurface exploration programs.
  • Evaluation of hydraulic fracture risk, pipe stresses, and pullback loads.
  • Optimized HDD plan and profile designs to reduce hydraulic fracture risk.
  • Temporary workspaces tailored to site conditions and anticipated construction equipment.
  • Site-specific drilling fluid program designed for the anticipated subsurface conditions.

Benefits of Trenchless Engineering

Laney’s trenchless engineering team reduces risk to trenchless construction projects by evaluating surface and subsurface conditions and then working with the operations team, develops HDD designs that are targeted to reduce hydraulic fracture risk and construction difficulties. 

Record of Success

As a licensed engineering firm in 27 states with extensive design-build capabilities, our track record includes over 100 trenchless projects and 300 crossing designs.
