Pipe-bursting projects can be broken down to three phases: pre-design, design, and construction. The pre-design phase
involves collecting information about the problem pipeline, investigating the alternative solutions, and ensuring
that pipe bursting is the best solution. The design phase involves investigating the conditions of the old pipe
and trench, nearby utilities and structures, determining shaft locations, bypass pumping requirements, and developing
detailed drawing and specifications.
The construction phase involves selecting the bursting system, lateral connections, submittals, shaft construction and
shoring, bypass pumping, pipe bursting and restoration.
