Tunnels transform transportation networks by linking nations, uniting communities, and reducing travel time. Water and wastewater tunnels make modern hygiene and sanitation standards possible. Utility tunnels bring us our electricity, telephone, internet, and gas pipelines, enabling us to power our lives. Underground spaces contribute to our transit networks, our energy reserves, and our scientific research. Tunnel design and construction requires a wide range of engineering skills to deliver innovative solutions.
Bringing together all required disciplines under one roof, WSP is a world leader in tunnel planning, design, rehabilitation, and construction. From pre-feasibility, through fire and risk engineering and ventilation systems, to post-maintenance, we offer in-depth expertise throughout the tunnel lifecycle.
Our hands-on experience includes all types of tunnels—rock, soft ground, cut-and-cover, immersed tunnels, micro/trenchless, and the New Austrian tunnelling/sequential excavation method. Our engineers have worked on a wide variety of underground construction projects around the globe, from road tunnels and subway stations, to underground nuclear waste repositories and water conveyance systems.
On all projects, WSP builds teams that exceed expectations, develop solutions through dialogue and creativity and the ability to look beyond the obvious in cost and value optimization. Our spirit of achievement has been nurtured through our partner-driven approach, ensuring that we deliver the best value, from inception to completion. We accomplish this through the implementation of innovative, straight forward solutions, bringing together our lessons learned from an extensive portfolio of major projects. The result is a reputation for design excellence and industry-leading expertise.
