Trenchless Technologies

Aging underground infrastructure is becoming an important issue for public sectors globally. Infrastructure needs to be replaced or rehabilitated but part of it has become difficult to access. Over the years, roads and other infrastructure have been built above, resulting in new challenges. Trenchless Technology is the solution.


WSP has been involved in the Trenchless Technology industry for some time, allowing us to develop great expertise. With these technologies, we can assess, rehabilitate or install underground infrastructure with little to no excavation. Trenchless technologies minimize disruption and environmental impact of projects.

Some of our main areas of expertise include:

  • Condition Assessment
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Design and Specifications for Trenchless projects

Most recently we have developed Live Leak Detection services for potable water mains. Our team reviews existing underground infrastructure such as underground water or sewer networks and assesses their condition, then recommends a plan of action to maximize rehabilitation.

Our services also include feasibility studies, as well as design and specifications for various trenchless technologies, such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) lining, Pipe Bursting, Pipe Ramming, Spray-On Liners and many other technologies available on the market.
