As a well known figure in the construction industry (both agriculture and civils, public and private sector) and with an expanding portfolio of machinery hire J.A RATTIGAN & SON offer safe effective vacuum excavation hire (Vac-Ex) (or suction excavation hire as it is sometimes referred to), thoughout London and the UK.

By the means of high volume air flow, together with highly trained suction/vacuum specialists, surveyors, operators, drillers and engineers we are able to assist on a number of excavation projects including: excavation of contaminated ground, water treatment, materials buried around utilities or services (railway lines, sub stations, gas, electric, water, fiber-optics, telecoms) and vacuum extraction for event clearance.

Why use suction excavation?

A suction/vacuum excavator avoids invasive groundwork digging. A suction/vacuum excavator can reduce risk to digging teams and to the general public, it also reduces damage to cables, culverts, tree roots and other environmental areas – by needing only a small excavation area. This also makes suction/vacuum excavation cost effective in comparison to traditional methods of digger excavation because of the reduced risks and the additional plant hire.

J.A RATTIGAN & SON is one of Europes largest operators of suction vacuum excavators.
