 “This was a great chance for a rock engineering, geotechnical type like myself to sink my teeth into various trenchless methods. Most of my time is spent either fixing or blowing up rock, so this was a nice change. I've worked w/ HDD and large bore tunnels in the past, but never with MT (Microtunneling), jacking, auger boring, etc. This was great.” Says David Scarpato, P.E., Senior Geological Engineer & Project Manager, HALEY & ALDRICH, Inc., Manchester, NH.
