Blasting:

We have a licensed blaster on our team. This allows us to blast in hard rock conditions whenever they are presented during excavation. Our current project at Fleming winery is being excavated via blasting. By having a licensed blaster in house we have the capability to continue excavation in a tunnel with changing geological conditions. While other cave contractors may have to stop excavation, while a licensed blaster is located and hired.
