E&J Electric offers a locating, trenching and boring services to accommodate projects of any size in Solon, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, North Liberty, & Coralville. Our team believes in maintaining communications with our clients throughout every phase of the project to ensure all specifications and goals are met successfully. Below is an overview of our services.
We offer options for installing underground utilities including water lines, conduit, and telecommunications, utilizing methods from state of the art boring technology to traditional open trenching.
E&J can provide the trenching services necessary to install geothermal loop systems copper/fiber optic and structured cabling for LAN, WAN, T1, Data, Telephone and Paging applications. We use a wide variety of equipment from small walk-behind trenchers to our largest (cross country plow) track unit, to install, move, maintain and repair underground utilities and geothermal loops.
Directional boring technology affords E&J the ability to navigate a drill rod underground for extended distances at one time without disrupting the overlying property. Drilling is assisted with a supply of water base and environmentally safe drill fluid. This technology of directional boring allows for drilling beneath rivers, streams, creeks, wetlands, existing utilities, roadways, parking areas, landscaping, retaining walls, steep embankments, and other obstacles without impacting the environment and the surrounding area. We also offer alternate methods for underground utility installations including traditional open trenching.
E&J Electric and E&J Geothermal are committed to taking all necessary precautions to identify existing underground utilities before any groundwork begins. Prior to any groundwork our team will notify Iowa One-Call to locate public utilities in the immediate vicinity. This service is offered in most cases at no cost to the land owner. In the event the location requires further locating services to identify private utilities not covered by Iowa One-call, the land owner may request that our trained and certified team assist in locating the buried utility at our current labor rate.
