Why We're Worth It

Save money with Gastony

#Just think of the savings. No street cuts. No missing rose bushes. No felled trees. We keep the surrounding infrastructure intact.

Directional boring is a 10-plus year old technology and the staff of Gastony has been there from the start. We use state-of-the-art equipment and assume all liability for the boring process.

In addition to traditional directional boring, we do pipe bursting and pull the new lines at the same time. Gastony is also equipped to set lines and manholes, conduct line camera inspections, and perform water line taps.

Recent Project Experience

#Wal-Mart General Office
Link to their new ISD Center on the east side of Bentonville, AR. Bored and pulled 8 fiber-optic interducts from the west side of Bentonville to the east side. Installed new fiber optic cable lines 35,000 feet - 8 duct, linking up both the old and new dedicated ISD Center.

Cities of Fort Smith and Van Buren, Arkansas
Gastony rehabilitated sewer mains in these cities using pipe bursting techniques on 6-inch clay and concrete sewer pipe to upgrade to 8-inch grey wall HDPE in various sections of both cities. These projects do no damage to other underground infrastructure or above ground landscaping, streets or driveways.

#Central Mall — Fort Smith, Arkansas
Bored and pulled fiber-optic inderduct 14,000 feet through hard sandstone rock. Estimated time of completion by DTI was 3 months (due to condition of ground and heavy utilities). Gastony completed the project in 4 weeks from start to clean up.

Wal-Mart Data Center
Installed miles of conduit for underground electric, fiber optic, telecommunication, and fire and water lines. Project required almost a year to complete. It was completed on time and on budget.
