Direct Pipe

Providing new options

Michels Canada is one of the world’s best direct pipe contractors experienced at using the emerging Direct Pipe methodology to install prefabricated pipes up to 60 inches in diameter. As your drilling contractor, we utilize direct pipe to combine elements of tunneling and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) in an efficient process requiring a small footprint and shallow alignment. Our direct pipe installation is ideal for urban areas where space is limited and in-ground conditions not suitable for HDD drilling. Direct Pipe’s continuously supported borehole makes it a good fit for projects passing under railways, highways and waterways.
