Rock tunnelling is a specialty that is incorporated across all of our market sectors, including transportation, roads and highways, rail and transit systems, underground stations, water and waste water conveyance, power and energy, and underground storage facilities, including petroleum and nuclear waste repositories.
Our engineers have extensive experience in all aspects of rock tunnelling and mined caverns projects, from conception and feasibility studies, to detailed design and construction, as well as the operation and rehabilitation of the facilities throughout their life cycle. We have been involved in rock tunnel design in most major cities the world over, including every major underground transit system in the United States.
WSP is accustomed to adapting traditional design and construction techniques to specific site situations, and developing innovative techniques and approaches for projects that demand solutions beyond standard practice. We have experience across various geological settings and different geographies on all six continents. We anticipate the possible complications that could arise during construction and account for them during the preparation of design and construction documents, as well as by overseeing construction.
