A Division of Fisher Sand & Gravel Co.
Arizona Drilling & Blasting joined Fisher Industries in 2006 and has proven to be an invaluable member of our team, allowing us to internally control blast quality and quantity. Our experienced, knowledgeable, explosive engineers strive for a 100% safety record.
Look to Arizona Drilling & Blasting for quality, safe blasting for your construction or mining applications. We are experienced in mass grading, site development, roadways, heavy highways, utilities, mass excavation, boat ramps, marina development, quarry development and pioneering access, production and open pit mining. We have a proven track record with seismograph monitoring programs implemented at all blasting sites.
One of the many notable blasts we've performed was for a large, municipal water treatment plant expansion in Tempe, Arizona. The significant challenge on this blast was that the site was a mere 75 feet from the Arizona Historical Society. Our engineers coordinated with the museum to ensure the safety of its visitors, exhibits and building. Our detailed plans and scaled distance planning, using seismic monitoring minimized vibration to the museum and optimized the safety of this blast.
During the widening of US Highway 93, the Arizona Drilling and Blasting team achieved 250 foot high cuts within 20 feet of a heavily travelled road. We maintained traffic closures to 5 minutes and kept debris from covering the roadway. We've worked with pits and quarries in Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico, Montana and North Dakota.
