Featured Projects:

Victoria Interceptor

In order to directionally bore a deep sewer shaft, Veit constructed four large drop shafts ranging in diameter from 18-24 feet and extending to depths in excess of 100 feet. Veit overcame difficult conditions including boulders, cobbles, 100+ blow count soils, and restricted overhead space to complete this project. Shafts were drilled using a unique polymer/bentonite slurry.

High Voltage Transmission Line River Crossing

In preparation for the installation of two high voltage transmission line towers on either side of a small river, Veit installed eighteen foot diameter drilled piers to depths of 80-90 feet. Pier construction included wet method (slurry) installation, full depth reinforcing cage, concrete, and anchor bolt placement.
