Concrete and General Trade


Structures built with concrete have withstood the test of time.  When you choose concrete, you're choosing durable material that outperforms most other construction material that won't require a ton of maintenance.  Concrete is versatile, durable and proves to be an excellent choice for commercial/industrial applications.  In an era when it's so critical to reduce our collective energy, concrete contributes to green energy initiatives. Concrete has high levels of thermal mass which leads to stability in indoor temperatures no matter how much the weather outside changes.  It also can be fully recyclable in other applications. 

General Trade

We also employ or subcontract a wide variety of tradespersons with a diverse set of skills to accommodate general trade work associated with commercial/industrial projects.

Here are just a few:

  • Carpenters

  • Concrete Finishers

  • Heavy Equipment Operators

  • General Laborers

  • Underground Pipe Layers


Hydro Vacuum Excavation

What is Hydro Vacuum Excavation?

Hydro Vacuum Excavation is a very popular process used for digging and moving soil without damaging existing utilities using water and suction. 

Compared to traditions soil removal methods, such as shoveling, excavators and backhoes, Hydro Vacuum Excavation reduces the risk of property damage during the excavation process on any type of project. 

How Does It Work?

The Hydro Vacuum Excavation System uses highly pressurized water in conjunction with an air vacuum to break up soil.  Because the water is so highly pressurized, soil is easily loosened and then sucked up by an air vacuum and transferred to a debris tank with little to no chance of damaging existing utilities. 

What are the Benefits of Hydro Vacuum Excavation?


Pressurized water is a non-mechanical method that will not destroy existing facilities.  Your workforce will be less at risk to damaging existing utilities and from personal injury from machine accidents. 

Save You Money

Hydro Vacuum Excavation doesn't require an immense amount of construction equipment or labor.  Also, because it's a more accurate method that won't critically damage the underground infrastructure of the environment, you're far less likely to pay to fix catastrophic repairs. 

Hydro Vacuum Excavation is a versatile solution for many applications, including cleaning storm water structures, water quality units (Aqua-Swirls), boring slurry removal, and slot trenching in tight areas.  Our Hydro Vacuum Excavation service allows for an easy, quick, and safe operation to perform these common work activities. 


Trenching & Backhoe

Sub-Surface of Indiana is well known for our general trenching and backhoe excavation work.  As one of the largest excavating companies in Central Indiana, our professional crews utilize state of the art equipment for hundreds of project annually. 

When Does the Job Call for Trenching & Backhoe?

One service, most associated with any construction project, is trenching and backhoe work.  To lay the foundation of most building and install underground infrastructure, earth-moving machinery is required.  What makes a backhoe so effective is that they are readily available, cost effective, lightweight, versatile and are able to execute a variety of tasks.  This versatility makes the machine far easier to operate and more maneuverable in narrow areas. 

Trenching is identified as a process in which a trench that is deeper that it is wide is created for the installation of utilities cables and conduits.  Sub-Surface of Indiana can perform any number of trenching tasks to complete your next project. 

Some of our trenching and backhoe services include but are not limited to:

  • Underdrains

  • Electric, Phone and Cable Conduit/Wire

  • Water Services

  • Sanitary Laterals


Directional Boring & Pipe Fusing

What Makes Trenchless Technology and Machinery Special?

Minimal Impact

Installing underground utilities with traditional methods, open trench, can completely shut down your job site's traffic and destroy its appearance.  Think about laying cable or pipe underneath a road: torn up pavement, diverted traffic, and days of work are required to get the site back to normal.  By using directional boring, your work area will not be disrupted or left in disrepair. 

Versatility and Application Types

Directional boring is a very effective way to go under roads, driveways, sidewalks, existing landscaping and bodies of water without damaging the surface area. 

No Project Too Big or Small

SSI crews have completed large scale directional boring projects up to 36" and to as small as 1" in diameter and lengths of over 1,000 feet per set up for a variety of materials. 

Safer and Cost Effective

Directional boring gives customers a better option to complete their projects safer and more economically without disturbing pedestrian or vehicle traffic caused by open cut methods.  Compared to trenching and excavation, directional boring can also substantially reduce safety risks, especially in dense urban areas.
