Earthwork and Utility Construction

Earthwork & Utility construction is unique, risky, and challenging when considering the potential unknown variables. Staab’s Professional Engineering staff understands geological soil types, ground water hydrology, and construction methods to handle complicated excavations with unusual characteristics. Staab will design and install the required earth retention system, install utility bypass diversions, and complete ground water dewatering ensuring a safe and stable excavation. We have years of experience in all manners of underground process pipe, utility, and storm sewer installations as well as manhole and vaults.
