"These methods were used because of a lack of detour options to maintain traffic flow," says John Gustafson, Owner/ Manager of Trenchless Construction Services L.L.C. "The soil conditions, as well as the accuracy of pilot tube micro-tunneling, also made it the preferred method for the 15 inch and 24 inch portions of the project."
Pilot tube micro-tunneling, also referred to as guided auger boring, was introduced in the 1990s for the installation of small diameter sewer pipes and water lines. Guided auger boring systems are similar to micro-tunneling systems with the addition of a guidance system. This accurate guidance system consists of a camera-mounted theodolite to ensure a high accuracy of the line and grade. "We choose the Bohrtec guided auger machine because we knew it would give us bullet like accuracy," says Gustafson.
Prior to construction, Trenchless sponsored a meeting with engineers, sub-contractors and Trenchless employees in order to get everyone on the same page. ICON, the New Jersey-based slide rail system manufacturer and Bohrtec pilot tube distributor and Mission Clay, the No Dig clay pipe manufacturer both made presentations of their products. "Our goal was to make sure all parties had a clear view of the project scope as well as the products we were going to use," says Gustafson.

"ICON's slide rail system is very easy to install, which saved us a tremendous amount of time," says Gustafson.

"We were able to jack the clay pipe after the initial pilot tube drilling with the casings because of the smaller pipe diameter," says Gustafson.
Trenchless purchased the 15 inch pipe auger and casings for the project and rented the larger auger and casings for the 24 inch pipe from ICON. "ICON was instrumental in securing the tooling and special equipment required for the specific pipe sizes on the project," continues Gustafson. "ICON's personnel were always available for consultation and visited the project during construction to assure us that we were using the recommended procedures." Trenchless was able to complete this first-of-a-kind project for Washington State within the allotted time and avoided equipment malfunction delays. "ICON is a very customer focused, professional and knowledgeable company," says Gustafson.

The managing member of Trenchless Construction Services L.L.C., John Gustafson, knows the trenchless market and understands how his company fits in that market. Recently, the contractor completed a challenging emergency project for Birch Bay Water and Sewer District in northwestern Washington State that demonstrated the company's capabilities and commitment to quality work.

According to Gustafson, the constraints of the project really dictated what process they could use. He said, "The problem the district faced was an old 2.5-inch PVC water line that had experienced numerous breaks, service interruptions, and extensive repair costs.
