Underground Utilities Installation

It’s easy to stick a pipe in the ground. But that pipe, even when covered with dirt and hidden from view, must hold up and do its job for up to a century. Achieving that result requires advanced technology and we pride ourselves on staying on the cutting edge.

Every season, McAninch underground crews lay miles upon miles of pipe—ranging from one inch to 108 inches in diameter—for water lines, sanitary sewers and storm sewers. Related structures include intakes, box culverts and manholes.

Underground work has its own set of disciplines and methods. Because workers are in the trench, safety is imperative, so the slope of the cut is important. All Field Supervisors have completed advanced training and are OSHA certified. McAninch lays pipe in only one way—the right way. For more information on our Safety program, click here.

Productivity is enhanced by custom-configured excavators with wider tracks, longer booms and bigger buckets. Vibrating compaction plates assure proper soil compaction where it matters most—where you can’t see it. With these powerful tools, McAninch crews can lay more pipe per day and complete the job safely and efficiently.

Korey Seales – 24 Years with McAninch – Project Superintendent

It’s been my family for 24 years and I’ve always told Doug that I started here and I’ll finish here. He takes care of us and cares about his workers, so we try and do the same thing for him. The level of trust and the opportunity to do so many different things are what I like the best. We have always been the best at what we do. We are better than our competition, we’re faster than our competition and that’s what sets us apart. If there was a young person coming up and looking for a place to go and stay. Make a place their career, this is they place they would want to go.
