Pipe Materials for Trenchless Construction

Choos­ing the appro­pri­ate pipe mate­r­i­al is a vital com­po­nent of trench­less con­struc­tion. The type of mate­r­i­al need­ed will vary from site-to-site and the prop­er choice is depen­dent on a vari­ety of fac­tors. Par­tic­i­pants in this work­shop will learn to rec­og­nize which mate­ri­als are suit­able for which con­struc­tion sites, and why select­ing the cor­rect pipe mate­r­i­al is impor­tant to the longevi­ty of the installation.
