Construction Terra Solutions can offer all types of Trenchless Construction together with ancillary works enabling a truly turnkey solution to be offered to any client;
Microtunnelling A very accurate method of installing concrete, clay or GRP pipes from 250mm diameter to 1200mm diameter. Microtunnelling machines can operate in all types of soils including rock, sands, silts and clays. Microtunnelling is the first choice of technique if ground movement is of critical importance.
Pipe Jacking Concrete and GRP pipes and concrete box culverts can all be installed by the pipe jacking technique. The range of ground conditions is unlimited, with a pipe jacking shield available for every type of soil.
Auger Boring Economical method of installing accurate small diameter gravity pipelines or larger diameter sleeves for pipelines and duct crossings.
Directional Drilling The most cost effective form of trenchless construction, particularly suited to the installation of ducts and pressure pipes.
Shaft Construction Whether it be trench sheets, pre-driven sheet piles or pre-cast concrete segmental or caisson construction, Terra Solutions has experience in building all of these types of shafts.
Timber Heading For a bespoke solution where space and access is at a premium, timber heading is a technique which offers the necessary flexibility to enable ease of construction.
Equipment Hire Terra Solutions owns and operates a modern fleet of trenchless equipment and ancillary plant. All plant complies with current legislation and is maintained to the highest standards at our brand new facilities in Newry.

Horizontal Directional Drilling Directional Drilling is a technique which can be used for the installation of pipelines and ducts of varying diameters over short or long distances. Advances in drilling rig design and st eering techniques have made this method of construction extremely flexible. Diameters of 100mm and above can be installed by Directional Drilling and lengths of 2000m and more are possible in one drill shot.
Environment Our Environment and its sustainability is crucial for everyone, Terra Solutions has been congnisant of this from the company’s inception and has a well developed policies and procedures in place to help reduce its environmental footprint.
