Effective ventilation systems in tunnels play a critical role in ensuring safety and providing a comfortable environment for passengers and tunnel maintenance workers. As tunnels are an integral part of transportation networks, increasing their life span is a challenge that infrastructure owners need to address.
Our engineers at WSP have the expertise required to quantify the ventilation requirements of various types of tunnel networks. They have developed and adapted a range of analysis and design tools and methods to assess and optimize aerodynamic and thermodynamic performance. With extensive experience in developing fire safety solutions, our specialists work as an integral part of the design, engineering, management, and operation of buildings and infrastructure.
All stages of design, through to operation and management of a facility are covered, from the development of bespoke fire strategies to the design and assessment of fire safety systems. By combining our experience in analysis, design, and asset appraisals, we reduce whole life costs and risks, and improve sustainability.
