WHAT IS VACUUM EXCAVATION?

Vacuum excavation, also known as suction excavation, is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly and safer method of excavation.

A vacuum excavator vehicle removes natural matter and debris from underneath the ground level of an excavation site. These substances are evacuated rapidly, significantly minimising the risk of damage to surrounding infrastructure and nearby underground utilities.

COMPLETE JOBS FASTER

Due to the high infrastructure and population density in Birmingham, it is crucial that the extent of traffic disruption is minimised and that projects are completed efficiently within a given time frame.

Vacuum excavation is a precise and accelerated method that guarantees efficiency in both the time and money spent on site. In comparison with more traditional methods, the application of vacuum excavation is imperative to reduce disruption to local businesses, homes and services.


INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY BY UP TO 1,200%

  • More efficient than manual labour
  • Time spent is greatly reduced, from project start to completion
  • Staff workload is significantly reduced
  • Materials are easily evacuated from the site regardless of consistency
  • Vac UK’s excavators are available for immediate employment
  • In comparison to a mini digger, a vacuum excavator requires a third less space
  • Waste and disruption are vastly reduced due to sites being cleaner and more compact
  • Stand-alone machine operation
  • Combine with soil engineering equipment impact moles keyhole liquid soil

MAKE IT SAFE

In major cities like Birmingham, the probability of striking underground cables or utilities increases tremendously when compared to less densely populated areas. The damage and cost incurred as a result would be tenfold. If a utility strike were to occur, this could provoke a larger destructive effect on neighbouring infrastructure and nearby people.  

Vacuum excavation vastly diminishes the possibility of damage to the environment, infrastructure and health and safety. Vac UK’s machinery can be operated from a safe distance and in an environmentally friendly manner.

 

 


VACCUM EXCAVATION IS SAFER THAN MANUAL LABOUR

  • Manual handling of machinery is not needed
  • Extension tubes are fashioned from p.e. pipe, reducing the possibility of damage to utilities
  • When working in hazardous or high risk areas, both operators and the vacuum excavator are insulated by our extension tubes
  • Over 60% of damage to utilities is decreased when compared to traditional methods

VACUUM EXCAVATION AND #BRUMBREATHES

In major cities like Birmingham, decreasing your carbon footprint is mandatory. In an effort to reduce the impact of pollution to the environment and the health of local residents, the Birmingham City Council have launched a campaign, #BrumBreathes. This campaign introduces a new Clean Air Zone within the Birmingham city centre, due to launch in early 2021.

Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone will:

  • Operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Encompass all the roads within the A4540 Middleway Ring Road
  • Discourage vehicles from entering the zone by introducing daily charges. Prices will vary depending on size and type 

To remain in line with these new initiatives, Vac UK can provide your project with a more environmentally friendly alternative. Suction excavation enables the deployment of fewer machines and people per project, considerably reducing your carbon footprint.

This method is the perfect solution for those who have a vested interest in safeguarding their green credentials or reducing their overall impact on the environment.

Suction excavation has many environmental benefits:

  • Tree root damage is enormously reduced when excess soil between roots and shrubbery is removed
  • Carbon footprint is vastly reduced as fewer lorries are required on site
  • Traffic and public disruption is diminished due to the time efficient grab of machinery, minimising third party damage
  • Excavation sites are up to a third smaller when compared with traditional methods
  • Reduced site size allows for increased pedestrian access and traffic flow
  • Sites are cleaner due to allocated waste sections where materials are tipped
