Calgary Tunnelling was hired to install 84″ Diameter Pipe for the Culvert.

Pipe Ramming installation has the benefit of being pushed directly into the ground leaving the soil undisturbed. This settlement that can lead to structural problems later. Installation is achieved by hammering a steel pipe through the ground. After the hammer shot is successfully completed the spoil is removed.

Calgary Tunnelling uses pipe hammering when ground conditions make augering difficult (Pit Run, Cobble, Wet Sand and River Crossing).

Pipe Hammering is ideal for installing conductor barrels for direction drilling rigs.
