Project Layout
Microtunneling projects should be laid out with attention to the benefits and constraints unique to this construction process. The following recommendations address some of these concerns:...

Shafts/Temporary Structures
Shafts should be of a size to accommodate the equipment and pipe selected and to allow for safe working practices. If the shaft must accommodate the permanent works, it is the contractor's...

Shaft Considerations
Jacking and receiving shaft locations should be selected to minimize the number of shafts and disruptions while not exceeding the practical limits of the drive lengths achievable for a...
