Past Jobs

The Towers Elevator

The Towers - Elevator

Problem: A company needed to replace the elevator jack because it was leaking oil faster than they could replace it. The jack went 45' into the ground. They needed to take that jack out, put a new one in and remove all of the dirt that encased the old jack.

Solution: We ran a 4” diameter vacuum hose through the building to the elevator and we set up a barrel interceptor so that it was easy to get rid of the oil contaminated dirt. Then we hung a 4” diameter hose from the ceiling and ran an airlance to break up the compacted material and vacuum it out.

hole in the ground

We Forgot to Dig a Hole, and Now There's a Building in the Way!

Problem: The client needed to dig a hole 9.5' deep and 3' wide. There was no way to get a tracker into the area because of the buildings and concrete blocking the way.

Solution: Vacuum truck and a long 6" diameter hose.

Paseo Sewer Tie-In

Paseo Del Norte Sewer Line Tie-In

Problem: A contractor had a hole 30' deep and 6' wide, and approximately 1' above a 24" sewer main that they needed to tie into. They could not safely get the dirt out from around the pipe and out of the hole.

Solution: We threw a long 6” diameter vacuum hose down the hole and had TLC shovel into the vacuum. The vacuum carried the dirt out of the hole and provided sufficient air flow for the laborers in the hole.
