About Ventura Directional Drilling

Learn About Our Team - Contractors License A No.: 831782

We have been in the business of installing underground utilities using Trenchless Technology for over 12 years, performing commercial, industrial, residential, and public works.

With our modernly equipped fleet of directional drilling and boring equipment and our experienced crew members we are capable of executing turn-key projects, or simply working alongside our clients as subcontractors.

We have completed a vast array of projects. From single 1″ conduits to 24″ steel casings, conduit bundles, fusible PVC, HDPE and MDPE conduits. Please check out our Projects Page for some examples of our diversified experience. Since 2001 we have been serving our customers from San Francisco to San Diego. We specialize in technically demanding and environmentally sensitive projects. Some of our most conscious projects have included on-grade sewer installations, military base utility installations, family farms, and wildlife or wetland preserves.

Safety, professionalism, and exceeding expectations are foremost in our company values. We know that some projects are more challenging than others, and understand how important this is to our customers and to ourselves.

Trenchless Technology is an ever evolving field and recent advances have presented new opportunities for projects that were once impossible. This is especially true of gravity sewer line installations in which guided boring systems (GBM’s) are allowing very tight grade tolerances to be achieved in increasingly challenging underground conditions.

We work closely with our clients to provide unique solutions and welcome inquiries pertaining to trenchless technology. By working closely with engineers, and injecting our own extensive experience we are also capable of resolving questions pertaining to trenchless installations.
