No matter the size or scale of a project, every building or home needs some sort of plumbing system. That is where the trenches come in– check out the trenches we’ve installed at our project on Haskell!

Beyond a functional purpose, these trenches have to be certified by the city (in this case, the City of Austin,) and correctly covered according to the city ordinances.

These utility trenches serve multiple utility-related purposes, servicing sewage, water, electric and gas. The aforementioned utilities are absolutely necessary for any construction project or building, whether it is a family home or mega-shopping center.

When it comes to securing the necessary city licenses for these trenches, Big Star Properties seeks to identify the resources to provide the trench. The city then has to approve the route drafting for the trenches. Big Star employs a team of construction workers and engineers to successfully and efficiently implement the plans.

According to the folks at Big Star Properties, to secure the quickest approval for trenches it is best to…

-Find a reputable, certified top contractor.

-Be prepared to pay handsomely for quality workmanship.

-Know the property, know the plans– Is there a secondary dwelling on a single lot, necessitating a tap into the main lines?
