Quality & Safety
The following quality assurance process is practiced on client sites to ensure that safety and quality of service are our top priority.
1. Prior to construction
Inspect the job site for potential hazards and asess the geological conditions to determine what will be required for equipment and tools.
2. Survey work site
A geotechnical survey is required or to acquire existing records from nearby site/by public record. a visual site inspection of the soil and geography is done to assess drilling conditions.
3. Assess hazards and obstructions
Review public records and use locating equipment to confirm if any obstructions are in the boring path.
4. Determine proper downhole equipment
Based on assessment of soil conditions and dig depth, size of hole the qualified technician will determine the proper drill bits and reamers to use.
Monitor the installation process to ensure the bore path follow to design and specifications.
6. Log results
Actively track dril progression and take note of any special conditions encountered.
7. Monitor fluid returns
Visually monitor and expect the entry/exit of fluids and test the viscosity so that modifications can be made to equipment.
