Timber heading is commonly used when there is a large number of services in the line of the pipe work preventing a traditional open cut method. Timber heading is constructed by hand using timber sets to support the excavation, the pipeline is fed through the tunnel by hand.
Timber heading is a great technique for housing builders who want to connect their new sewerage/storm water pipes to existing services, this prevents the disruption of traffic and pedestrian walkways when underground construction is being carried out.
A full design service can be provided for all timber heading works.
