Utility trenching is seen as one of the many services that American mechanical provides.
Trenching is the process of excavating below the ground and usually has a depth longer than its
width.

For most projects, it’s required to dig a trench to install a utility foundation. This is what
Colorado Excavating specializes in, as it is the foundation of construction. We prioritize our
safety, and it’s the reason why our jobs are accomplished with assurance.

The Plan

Understanding the process of trenching is critical to have a successful utility installation. It’s a
guarantee no detail will be neglected, it’s why we take our planning seriously into this type of
work.

One of the biggest parts of digging trenches is setting lines for either dry or wet utilities. When
the job is being done, it’s necessary to make sure the project manager is well informed about the
terrain and around the area. The important part of the job is making sure you’re not running into
other lines.

Dry & Wet Utilities

When installing dry utility lines such as gas lines, they need to consider environmental factors,
following the state and federal regulations and making sure trenches are properly dug correctly.
When installing wet utility lines such as wet lines, the same regulations apply.

The utility process can be convoluted, as it may involve excavation, grading, demolition, and
installation of lines. It’s a serious job not to be taken lightly.

Colorado excavation guarantees the best services for digging trenches or ditches for construction
projects. We’re equipped and ready to take on any task that we encounter.

We take pride in our care, yet we make sure that our workers are well trained, our leaders are
