Trenchless technologies, such as pipe-jacking and microtunneling, allows utility contractors to productively and cost-effectively install water, wastewater, and other infrastructure to urban areas with minimal distribution to the citizens. These innovative technologies allow new and larger infrastructure to be installed in densely populated areas where the existing infrastructure has failed or become inadequate. Methods such as microtunneling is not only environmentally friendly, it allows existing family homes to be saved while creating new infrastructure to support the future growing housing requirements. Since 1973, Akkerman has produced industry leading equipment that is engineering, manufactured and assembled in the USA.


When it comes to affordable housing development, quality, innovative & environmentally sensitive equipment with a high production rate is of a high priority. With equipment such as a guided boring machine, your spectrum for area applicable for new infrastructure installation greatly increases. Aside from any number of underground obstructions, a lot of our ground is already flooded with existing infrastructure. A guided boring machine allows contractors to easily navigate through the earth to make installation far easier & more available geographically. Environmentally sensitive tooling can also allow these projects to be less invasive & ultimately more affordable. Proper use & technique of this equipment helps avoid events such as frackouts & ultimately cancels out the possibility of costly environmental clean-up.

Directional Drilling machines can make long and complicated utility installation crossings can be quickly and economically accomplished with a great degree of accuracy. Installations can also reach sufficient depth to avoid other utilities. The major advantage is the speed of installation combined with minimal environmental effect. This facilitates construction permit process, thereby saving a lot of time and expense. Compact HDD equipment is active on a variety of projects, including extending electrical-gas and natural-gas distribution systems as well in in established neighborhoods where excavation is impossible or sometimes prohibited.

Affordable housing is dependent upon existing infrastructure in close proximity to developable parcels. Without water and sewer infrastructure in close proximity to potential housing parcels, the cost of development is exponentially increased and often not commercially viable. The NUCA Trenchless Exhibit will feature new technology developments that has made the installation of utility infrastructure accessible to property today, previously not available for housing development, i.e. parcels constrained (landlocked) by highways, railroads, wetlands or existing urban development were previously inaccessible or not cost effective to bring infrastructure into to facilitate new development. With today’s trenchless technologies, the installation and accessibility to critical infrastructure can now be achieved without the constraints or challenges of disrupting existing surface infrastructure, dramatically decreasing the cost of building in those previously inaccessible areas.
