Futuretek Civil is here to see your earthmoving project through from start to finish. From the first ground-breaking dig right down to the paperwork at the end of the project that shows the site is compliant with local regulations, we can get the job done.

We are continuously improving site safety across a wide range of industries and provide an excavation process that has less environmental impact than traditional excavation methods, is more productive, and can safely expose gas lines, water lines, and electrical infrastructure without the risk of damaging them.

Specialists in Vacuum Excavation Services

Here at Futuretek Civil, we are experts in all things earthmoving.

More Services

Some other services we offer include:

Post Hole Digging

We provide post hole digging services with our vacuum excavators, ensuring the safe installation of a fence even over an underground utility or asset.

Exposing Assets

Our non-destructive digging methods ensure the exposure of assets for asset repair, replacement, or maintenance, does not damage the asset or underground utility itself.

We perform pit and pipe cleaning to clean dirt and grime from the pit or pipe, or to unblock it from general wear and tear, waste, tree roots, and even storm damage.

Water jetting

Our water jetting service can be used for pit and pipe cleaning, drain cleaning, or for pressure cleaning any surface with dirt and waste clinging to it.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Futuretek Civil we understand that vacuum excavation isn’t everyone’s bread and butter, so there are some aspects that can be tough to understand. Not to worry, we’re here to help and answer any questions we can.

What is non-destructive digging (NDD)?

Non-destructive digging, or NDD, is the process of excavation in which external assets or environments are untouched or undamaged during an excavation process. It is when a team of operators perform excavation and are precise and careful in their actions during the process.

How deep are underground utilities buried?

Common utility services such as electricity, gas, water, and communications cable are usually buried at a depth of 200 – 600mm beneath the surface.

What is water recycling?

Water recycling is the recovery of water from wastewater for potable (drinking) or non-potable use, which can be supplied back to the water system either directly or indirectly.

What is the cost of hydro excavation?

Hydro excavation costs can vary depending on the size of the job, the location, and other factors that can make excavation difficult or lengthy. Call us today to discuss hydro excavation pricing.

What are industrial services

Industrial services can vary between industries, but for us industrial services include vacuum loading and pit and tank cleaning. To find out more, head to our industrial services page.

How does hydro jetting work?

Hydro jetting is the act of using high pressure water cleaning to clear debris, grease, and other materials from pipe ways as well as cleaning the internal making of piping. Find out more on our jetting and drain cleaning page.

What is vacuum excavation?

Vacuum excavation is excavation using a high-pressure water stream to create trenches, post holes and more. The slurry is then vacuum up using a vac truck and disposed of appropriately. Find out more about vacuum excavation on our vacuum excavation page.

Drain Cleaning and Jetting

VC-81 compliance

One of our most frequently used services is VC-81 Compliance Certification. In this service, we go over your project documentation and inspect the site to ensure that all permits meet the VC81 amendment to the Victoria Planning Provisions. Without these permits, any telecommunications installations won’t be issued with a statement of compliance - which is a vital piece of certification when it comes to NBN installation operations.


The team at Futuretek Civil have been regularly dealing with city councils across Victoria for many years and as such have the know-how to ensure that all council requirements are met. We can help simplify the compliance process and reduce the confusion and wait time for certification.

The Futuretek Civil team prides themselves on our well-established reputation for completing high quality non-destructive digging work. As such, all our operators are highly trained and fully qualified to ensure that all projects are performed to a level that meets our high standards.
