What it is

A no-dig technology that allows us to make trenchless installations of underground utility lines or to replace existing ones without large-scale excavation. The most popular applications include pipe for natural gas or water lines & services, and duct and conduit for telecomunications and power cables.

Who uses it

Contractors. Utility Companies. Public Works Departments. They are all turning to horizontal directional drilling (HDD) as their preferred method of installation or replacement. Reasons include cost-effectiveness, minimization of surface damage, low disruption to traffic or other activities, and environmental friendliness.

Where it's used

Almost anywhere that surface conditions make it harder and more expensive to operate traditional trenching machinery like backhoes or excavators. This includes tunneling under streets and buildings, under landscaped areas and rivers, or under parking lots and highways among so many other applications.

A Solid History

Bruce Bellamy started the business in 1975 and it was basically remodeling, from kitchens and bathrooms through additions. It grew quickly and in the 80s opened an insurance division and began doing fire and water restoration. In the 80s it also began doing its own excavations and concrete, and by the middle 90s was doing heavier excavation and water and sewer line work. In the late 1990s when the technology first became available, Bellamy invested in horizontal directional drilling and pipe buursting, both residential and commercial. Today Bellamy is the leader in Trenchless Technology - or Horizontal Directional Drilling - in the greater capital region, with over 50 employees and state-of-the-art technolgy, serving the greater Albany Capital Region and surrounding areas. Clients inclue residential, municipality, corporate and utility companies.
