Thin & In Excavations Wollongong: Narrow access excavating contractors servicing Illawarra and Sutherland

Business Proprietor: Wayne Cameron

Narrow Access

Sometimes there’s only very narrow access to an excavation site. Normal excavating contractors won’t be able to help because their excavation machinery is simply too wide to get in. Thin & In Excavations provide extremely narrow access excavation for Wollongong, Illawarra and Sutherland areas.

Just How Thin?

Thin & In Excavations are different because even if there’s only very narrow access (as little as 750mm) their mini excavator is able to get in and do your job. Please see images on left to get an intuitive idea of just how thin our excavator really is.

Smaller, Quieter and Less Mess

Thin & In Excavations use a small excavator that gets in to work in tight spaces with minimal churning of the ground. Compared to other mini excavators (e.g. typical Bobcat), the Thin & In excavator is narrower, makes less mess and is operationally very quiet.

Building Excavation

For footing or foundation excavation and earthworks relevant to house building, home extensions, patios and decks, paths, garages, carports, sheds and for under-house excavation and support etc, Thin & In Excavations are at your service. We can operate in small areas with narrow access where wider, more space hungry excavators like Bobcats would fail.

Underpinning Wollongong’s Older Buildings

Older or established buildings may be affected by subsidence due to various factors. Cracking in the structure above ground is often the result of some form of subsidence.

Underpinning existing buildings

To overcome the problems associated with subsidence, foundation replacement or pier replacement may be necessary. This involves temporarily jacking up and supporting the above ground structure, while digging out and replacing building foundations, footings, piers or stumps and is known as underpinning, foundation repair, re-piering or re-stumping. Wayne Cameron is a licensed underpinner and provides this important service for the Wollongong area.

Sub-floor Ventilation

Dampness under the floor can cause dampness and mould inside your home which can result in various health problems. Thin & in can install sub-floor ventilation to solve these dampness issues in your home


Thin & In provide trench excavation for sewer, stormwater, groundwater, septic and drainage pipes etc. Wayne is able to perform complete drainage jobs and is able to install the piping because he is licensed to lay drainage, storm-water and sewer pipes and subservice water.
