SE queensland Under Road Boring & Vacuum Excavation
Many Civil Contractors, Councils, Service Providers and Developers around South-East Queensland currently choose Little Boring for their Projects.
A family owned, and operated business developed under the guidelines of Ross Chard (Chardy) – Chard Boring established 30+ years. Little Boring was established in 2015 after Ross retired.
Little Boring offers the ability to run power, water, gas and other services under existing pathways, driveways, under road boring and trees with minimal disturbance to the environment. Our services are cheaper than cutting and re-instating driveways, roads and paths whilst also keeping the overall appearance as it was – almost like we were never there.
We call ourselves the short-bore specialists as we only have the ability to bore over short distances from 0 to 15 metres, unlike directional drillers who have a minimum bore size of 20 metres. Our set-up involves using an excavator and borer attachment enabling us to bore in all sorts of terrain including rock and our largest bore diameter is 500mm perfect for water pipes.
Due to how we do things our set-up needs only a small space of entry, 4000mm x 450mm making nearly every bore accessible, these entry and exit holes are then back filled leaving minimal soil on site or in most cases it is easily spread out. We bore on a flat plane allowing PE pipe, rigid pipe and nbanks of conduit to be inserted through the bore over short distances. No water is used, making clean up quicker and easier.
Lower Runnings Costs
In 2021 we introduced Little Suckers an 8000L Vacuum Excavation Truck, known in the business as a ‘sucker truck‘, as a new division of Little Boring. Little Suckers was a natural progression for Little Boring as each day our jobs revolve around the safe location of services to complete our projects. It is also environmentally friendly and a cost-effective way to non-destructively dig/hydro excavate to locate services, protect trees and infrastructure, remove excess water from sites and unblock drains.
As Little Boring and Little Suckers is a small family run business you can ensure that you are getting a team that is driven by a sense of service and commitment. We have a hands-on approach and value the relationships we form with our staff and customers alike. It’s this personable approach that gives us a unique point of difference, as we manage our client’s expectations, we manage our business goals and ultimately it is us that manages our future.
Under Road Boring with the short bore specialists
Having worked in the civil construction industry for all his working career and the dream of always owning his own business Tyson used his twenty plus years of Machine Operation and Electrical Civil Supervisory experience to establish Little Boring in 2015. Tyson’s past roles ranged from general hire machine operation for civil works, house slabs, driveways and the like to working with a 10 strong crew laying conduit and cabling for the supply and installation of power in new and existing sites. It is this five years in the electrical contracting space that has enabled Tyson to better service his clients as he understands not only what the clients wants but what the governing bodies require.
A background spanning many years in Industrial Recruitment and Hotel Management, Jacqui’s role within Little Boring is purely an administration support role. We would be lost without her organising the behind the scenes day to day tasks.
Mark comes to Little Boring with a background in Civil Construction labouring from plumber’s assistant to NBN installations. Having worked with us for over two years he is also Tyson’s right-hand man on the ground and an integral part of the Little Boring family.
