VIKOR utilizes special equipment and highly trained workers to install fiber lines underground with minimal disruption to the surrounding urban area thanks to our directional underground boring services for both residential and commercial properties.
This turn-key fiber installation gets the job done from start to finish and brings fiber direct to the home or business. Horizontal directional drilling requires only minimal disruption to existing concrete, asphalt, or landscaping while installing new utilities in urban areas.
Additional benefits of horizontal directional drilling within city limits include the ability to accurately avoid existing utilities, such as power, gas, water, and fiber, allowing you to upgrade your network without the hassle of moving or relocating existing infrastructure.

Horizontal directional drilling is a means by which underground utilities are installed in both urban and rural areas. Drilling has a much smaller impact on grass, sidewalk, asphalt, and concrete on the surface than other utility installation methods such as trenching or plowing. A boring machine drills underneath the surface from a small entry pit up to a predetermined exit pit. From there, a conduit is attached to the drill head for pull back to the entry pit. With the utilization of a backreamer, one or several pipes can be pulled the length of the drill shot.
On average, our directional drilling machines can go up to 500-600 feet.
Directional boring, also sometimes referred to as horizontal boring, is used for a lot of different projects. Adding in new sewer lines, utility and underground fiber installations, and more. It can be used to avoid geological issues, move through bedrock, and even be used for offshore drilling.
Directional boring costs differ depending on several factors. First, is the area's new development or existing infrastructure. Second, is the material of what is in the ground. Is the area lush soil, clay, or bedrock? Finally, it can also depend on the number of utilities buried. Feel free to contact us for a quote.
