Pole to Pit

As a Melbourne contractor, approved on the VESI website as a VEDN accredited provider, we have the right qualifications, experience and skills to work on the electrical networks as a supplier of underground infrastructure to enable underground electricity connections on all your civil work projects.

Supported by our Integrated Management System (IMS) and fully trained staff we can manage your pole to pit projects from start to finish. Our service includes coordinating with relevant council & government bodies to obtain permits, order and pick up materials from the Network Provider, organize relevant road opening permits & reinstatements and traffic management. We will then arrive at a scheduled time to bore/trench using our horizontal borers to install relevant underground infrastructure including the Electrical Pit and conduit to access power supply from the Network Pole to your property.

A full quality Pole to Pit audit is carried out at the end of the job to ensure every aspect meets with requirements and standards. Proposed and ‘As Built’ drawings can also be provided on request.
