More Than Your Average Hydro-Vac Company – Houston, TX, December 2017
Vecta was selected to provide hydro excavation services associated with a major renovation in the Houston Medical Center.

Over time our scope of work increased to include concrete cutting, the addition of excavation equipment, and trenching under the slab to establish new plumbing lines. The flexibility and creativity of Vecta’s project management team, led by Kyle Edwards, allowed our client to meet their schedule on time without any additional cost.
