Why Choose Us?

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Our directional drilling technology is cutting edge. Utilizing less destructive methods of drilling and trenching that minimize environmental impact, we help make your project more cost-effective. By avoiding the usual social costs that are associated with open trench installation, directional drilling allows for the installation of several utilities while avoiding issues, such as traffic flow disruption, damaged roads, highways, sidewalks, driveways, lawns and gardens. Equipped with three Vermeer directional drills, and we have the capacity to drill various lengths and sizes.

Utility Construction

Ulmer Contracting Ltd. has extensive experience working with general and electrical contractors in a variety of construction disciplines, such as: sewer, water, natural gas, hydro-electric ducts, telecom ducts and vaults, telephone and any type of pipe and conduit available.

Underground Utility Locator

When Locating underground utilities, Ulmer Contracting Ltd does a BC 1 Call. We ensure speed and safety in completing a project while minimizing any risk of damage to the utilities. We perform utility investigations and report the location of buried utilities by using the International Colour Code for Marking Buried Facilities. In this way, unnecessary costs which can become substantial are avoided and the risk of destruction, or even injury, that can occur when working with underground facilities is significantly decreased.

Daylighting

Ulmer Contracting Ltd. is the expert in daylighting, a non-destructive process of removing top-soil and exposing underground facilities to the daylight for utility maintenance. This work is done by using non-destructive hydrovac excavating, whereby pressurized water loosens the hard-packed earth and an air and vacuum system removes it successfully exposing the buried infrastructure.
