The Leaders of Directional Drilling in the North Bay

Horizontal Directional Drilling

We are a full service Horizontal Directional Drilling Company. Our HDD crews install hundreds of feet of product in a day with very little surface activity or ancillary services. The reduction in project cost and duration saves contractors, developers. and project owners significant amounts of time and money.

All Terrain

HDD uses include boring under waterways, roadways, sidewalks, vineyards or hillsides where typical trenching technologies would be cost prohibitive, implausible or environmentally intrusive. It can also preserve mature landscape aesthetics for landscaped properties, both residential and commercial.

HDD offers exceptional value for boring under environmentally sensitive areas. Empir HDD has also received the Gold Shovel Standard certification award, only received by quality professionals in directional drilling jobs for excavators, exhibiting an exceptional dig-in safety performance at a significantly higher level than is typically required.

Empire HDD Horizontal Directional Drilling

Our equipment is created to bore through the toughest soil conditions, including rock.

As one of the premier horizontal directional drilling companies in northern California, we take your directional boring needs personally and promise to outperform your expectations professionally. Empire HDD will provide a steerable trenchless method (horizontal tunneling) of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cable in a shallow arc along a pre-determined bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal back reaming and impact on surrounding areas.
