Timber Headings


Dating back to Millennium, and not just used in war films, this method is without question tried, tested and the only solution to certain situations.

Our highly skilled mining teams manually excavate a tunnel supported by timber sets from a single shaft where we can install sewer pipes, cable or duct when access is limited, or in many instances, not even possible at one end.

Timber Headings are like no other system and often used for making final connections onto mains services below ground without any need for a shaft.

To see examples of our Timber Headings projects, please click the link below


Typical applications:
  • When a connection is needed under a structure or surface that cannot be disrupted
  • Where space is restricted
  • Where other services may be present but their whereabouts is unknown
