Radell Underground has been in business for over 50 years. Starting as Jim Radell Construction in 1968, we're now in our second generation as Radell Underground. We're a utility contractor who specializes in horizontal directional drilling, also known as boring. Our clients include AT&T, Evergy, CrawKan, and many more.
The most efficient method to install underground utilities. Directional boring eliminates the need for open trenching or open cutting roadways, reducing interruption to traffic and disturbance to landscape and existing surfaces.
Trenching is a construction method that involves digging a narrow trench in the ground for the installation, maintenance, or inspection of pipelines, conduits, or cables. A trench is a type of excavation or depression in the ground that is generally deeper than it is wide, and narrow compared with its length.
The process of plowing uses a vibrating blade to split the ground, and cut a narrow slit that can be packed as the plow moves along very easily. This causes minimal disruption to landscape.
With the help of our equipment we are also able to install and fix water lines, water mains, valves, sewer lines, sewer mains, and electrical lines.
Excavation is used in construction to create building foundations, reservoirs and roads. Some of the different processes used in excavation include trenching, digging, dredging and site development.
Vacuum excavation is a non-mechanical and less invasive method of excavation. A blast of air or water is first directed into the dig site to loosen soil and break up any large materials. An air vacuum hose is then used to remove the debris from the hole and transfer it to a specially designed tank. Stored spoil can be transported elsewhe
Vacuum excavation is a non-mechanical and less invasive method of excavation. A blast of air or water is first directed into the dig site to loosen soil and break up any large materials. An air vacuum hose is then used to remove the debris from the hole and transfer it to a specially designed tank. Stored spoil can be transported elsewhere or, if dry, re-used as fill. This reduces the need for manual hand digging or abrasive excavation methods. This process allows for workers to stay safe on the surface and helps to prevent trench cave-ins. Excavators don’t need to worry about puncturing a pipe when using vacuum excavation (versus mechanical methods), which could result in the need for costly repairs. Hydro excavation is advantageous when working in frozen ground, since hot water can be used to thaw and break up the soil. Vacuum excavation, when performed in accordance with accepted industry practices, is recognized as being safer than hand digging within the tolerance zone around underground facilities.
