Our wealth of experience includes team members who have been involved in trenchless technology since it was introduced into Australia in the early nineties. The use of Openshore’s trenchless technology provides a means of upgrading or installing new utilities without the disruption to the public or traffic delays. With minimal surface disturbance, local landscaping, streets and sidewalks are left undisturbed. The installation of communication and fibre optic networks, gas, power, water and sewer can all benefit from the use of trenchless technology.

Openshore can access areas beneath streets, highways, railroad crossings and parking lots. In areas where access has been limited or restricted, such as under canals, rivers and wetlands, trenchless technology is often the only environmentally acceptable solution.

  • Environment Management ISO 14001

Billy and Paul, the company directors, have been involved in the Trenchless industry since the early nineties, and were working with some of the first directional drilling equipment introduced into the country.

Their experience ranges from major infrastructure construction builds including Foxtel and NextGen, right through to offshore crossings for major gas companies throughout Australia and South East Asia.

They started Openshore in 2007 with a focus on providing solutions for difficult and unique situations. Their ability to complete jobs on time and on budget has seen them work for some of the country’s most trusted infrastructure providers.
