Open Cut

At Utiliko, we pride ourselves on offering a range of trenchless solutions to new pipework installation. However, trenchless installations are not always the most effective option. Where new services need to be installed, or entirely fresh utility installations created where there previously were none, open cut trench installations are often the best way to provide services over greater distances or larger diameters.

Our team has decades of combined experience in open cut installations, rapidly digging long installation trenches before our dedicated reinstatement teams complete in-filling and final finish. All excavated waste is handled to strict Environment Agency regulations and our teams trained and certified to handle jobs of any scale, in any location. We can backfill, pave, or tarmac once works are completed to the highest standard, carrying out every step of the installation process from initial consultation and surveying to final finish.

We are proud to hold all relevant New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) qualifications, enabling our team to work on highways across the country. In fact we have worked as preferred contractors on a range of highway and infrastructure projects, putting our expertise to work on some of the largest installation projects in the North West of England. We have successfully and efficiently completed open cut water mains supply installations across Cumbria and North Lancashire, making us uniquely experienced in working in a wide variety of environments and at all project scales.

By discussing the needs of your business and project with our highly experienced team, we can suggest the best way to achieve the capacity that you need. We own and operate our own fleet of vehicles and machinery, whether you need open cut trenches dug through or around existing structures, roads or highways. This allows us to complete installations entirely in house from start to finish, from initial consultation to final backfill and sign off. Trusting Utiliko with your utility installation project takes the pressure off your business, with the entire process handled by highly trained and fully certified water mains supply technicians.

New build projects are a speciality, and often benefit most from the flexibility of open trench installation. All utility services can be installed in a single trench, saving time and money as well as making most efficient use of space. We can help you to plan for the necessary installation capacity, and simplify future maintenance through the creation of maintenance hatches or manholes.

Contact our team today to discuss the needs of your business and find out what installation method is right for your job. As leading utility contractors in the North West, we are able to advise on a wide range of the latest techniques to ensure the installation is as smooth and straightforward as possible. Our team work 24/7 offer minimal disruption to your business or operations, giving you flexibility alongside peace of mind that you have highly trained experts guiding the installation every step of the way.
