Underground work has its own set of disciplines and methods. Because workers are in the trench, safety is imperative, making the layback and the slope of the trench important. All field supervisors have completed advanced training and are Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certified. McAninch lays pipe in only one way – the right way.
Laying Pipe the Only Way – The Right Way
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. We pride ourselves on staying on the cutting edge and deploying today’s best tools and resources.
Our productivity is enhanced by custom-configured excavators with wider tracks, longer booms and bigger buckets. Vibrating compaction plates ensure 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 while completing the job safely and efficiently.
Every season, McAninch underground crews lay hundreds of miles of pipe – ranging from 1-inch dia. Water service to large scale Reinforced Concrete Box Culverts (RCB) – for water lines, sanitary sewers and storm sewers. Related structures include intakes, box culverts and manholes.
