Hydro excavation work continues at Fiona Stanley Hospital

21 October 2012

Jetcut has been contracted to provide hydro excavation services at the new Fiona Stanley hospital complex in Murdoch.

Hydro excavation uses high pressure water jetting and large tip truck style vacuum trucks to fluidise the soil then vacuum it up. It provides a safe fast alternative to hand digging when there are services in the ground near or in the excavation, and poses almost no risk to them.

This method of excavation was chosen because of this and it is fast becoming recognised as best practice in the construction industry.
