Where Expertise Meets Innovation

Building Your Vision, Underground

Directional drilling, also known as horizontal directional drilling (HDD), is a cutting-edge method of installing underground pipes, conduits, and cables with minimal disruption to the surface. This advanced technique allows for the installation of utilities beneath obstacles such as roads, rivers, and buildings, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.

At MACK Construction Services Ltd, we understand the importance of precision and efficiency in directional drilling projects. Our team of highly skilled professionals is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and utilizes advanced drilling techniques to ensure accurate and reliable results, even in the most challenging environments.

Whether it’s laying telecommunications cables, water pipelines, or electrical conduits, we have the expertise and resources to handle projects of all sizes and complexities. From the initial planning stages to the final installation and testing, we work closely with our clients to deliver solutions that meet their specific requirements and exceed their expectations.

Our Process

We believe in building strong partnerships with our clients based on trust, reliability, and exceptional service. When you choose us for your directional drilling needs, you can rest assured that you are partnering with a team that is dedicated to delivering results of the highest caliber.

Planning and Design

The process begins with meticulous planning. Our engineers assess the project requirements, survey the site, and determine the optimal drilling path to avoid obstacles and meet the desired endpoint.

Pilot Hole

A small diameter pilot hole is drilled from the entry point to the exit point using a specialized directional drilling rig equipped with a drill bit. The drill bit is guided by a tracking system to ensure accuracy along the planned path.


With the hole enlarged to the required size, the utility line is attached to the reamer and pulled back through the drilled path. This process may involve the use of drilling fluid to lubricate the hole and facilitate the pullback.


Once the utility line is in place, it is connected to the existing infrastructure at both the entry and exit points. The connections are inspected and tested to ensure proper functionality.


Finally, the area around the entry and exit points is restored to its original condition. Any surface disturbances, such as excavations or trenches, are filled in and compacted, and landscaping is restored as needed.

Directional Drilling FAQs

Directional drilling is suitable for a wide range of projects, including installing utilities such as water, sewer, gas, and telecommunications lines. It is particularly useful in urban areas with limited space or sensitive environmental conditions.

Directional drilling minimizes environmental impact by reducing the need for disruptive excavation and trenching. It allows utilities to be installed underground with minimal disturbance to the surface, preserving vegetation, minimizing soil erosion, and reducing habitat disruption.

Directional drilling offers several advantages over traditional trenching methods, including:

Reduced surface disruption: Directional drilling minimizes surface disturbances, making it ideal for urban areas, environmentally sensitive areas, and locations with existing infrastructure.

Cost savings: Directional drilling can be more cost-effective than traditional trenching methods, especially in situations where surface restoration costs are high.

Faster installation:
Directional drilling allows for faster installation of utilities, as it eliminates the need for extensive excavation and backfilling.

Greater flexibility: Directional drilling can navigate around obstacles such as buildings, roads, and rivers, providing greater flexibility in project planning and execution.

The accuracy of directional drilling is ensured through careful planning, precise equipment calibration, and skilled operator control. Before drilling begins, engineers conduct thorough site surveys and use advanced computer modeling software to plan the drilling path. During drilling operations, operators monitor and adjust the drill head's direction and angle in real-time using tracking systems and guidance tools to ensure that the utility line is installed accurately along the planned path.
