Utilities

Civil drawings typically show a standard utility support detail which is sufficient for sites with no problem soils. When differential settlements are an issue, Oweis' professional engineers make the best prediction of anticipated settlements to help design the utilities and manholes. Recommendations on utility support appears in most geotechnical reports. Often, a utility, such as a pipe or fiber optic cable needs to go under an embankment, stream, or a structure such as a bridge. Oweis has experience with directional drilling and other crossing techniques such as Jack and Bore and micro-tunnelling to serve their clients’ needs.
