Trenchless Technology, as the name implies, stands for subsurface construction works where less trenches or no continuous
trenches are required to be dug. It is a rapidly growing sector of the construction and Civil Engineering industry. It can
be defined as "A family of methods, materials, and equipment capable of being used for the installation of new or replacement
or rehabilitation of existing underground infrastructure with minimal disruption to surface traffic, business, and other activities."
