Building a Better New Zealand

VAC-U-DIGGA NZ is proud to be part of the Christchurch Rebuild Program and to be engaged on the delivery of the high speed Ultra Fast Broadband and other major projects across New Zealand. The use of our technology will mitigate any risk to damaging underground utilities and allow for faster installations of new plant with no project down time due to emergency repairs and HS&E issues surrounding such damages.

Our safe excavation technology is new to New Zealand but is quickly gaining acceptance as the only method to safely work around HV cables, Telecom plant, sewage and water. Many companies and prime contractors have now made vacuum excavation a mandatory practice on their projects and we are working with many such companies to mature the operational practices, to deliver optimum efficiency and cost savings.

You cannot use yesterday’s tools to do todays work and expect to survive tomorrow in todays highly regulated construction environment....

What we do

What we do

Our non destructive vacuum excavation technology will not damage underground utilities and cause your company Brand damage and public dissatisfaction. Our fully accredited operators are trained in the correct method of vacuum excavation and all our Units have scheduled pressure testing, to ensure that underground plant is safe from damage. Damage to underground utilities presents a significant expense to reinstate, impacts upon insurance premiums, creates downtime for both workers and machinery, and may damage your branding in the marketplace

We have a range of sizes in our Vacuum Excavation Units to meet all your requirements. Our smaller 3,000 Litre Units are ideal in areas congested with traffic or site areas constrained by other machinery. The 5,000 Litre Units are utilised for larger excavations where Unit capacity is important.

Vac-U-Digga NZ has a world class fleet staffed by fully trained staff and efficiently supported by our Work Management Centre to ensure we deliver you a premium service.
