Analysis Tools and Skills
In developing software tools and techniques, WSP provides innovative methods to study thermal comfort, risk of change, and evaluate the consequences of factors such as climate change.
Design Tools and Skills
WSP designers offer specialised experience in tunnel ventilation structure, optimising equipment selection and layout, and managing wider integration with infrastructure.
Fire Safety Engineering
We develop fire strategies using prescriptive, risk-based, and fire engineering approaches to gain approval from the authority having jurisdiction and acceptance by other key stakeholders.
Energy and Sustainability
Tunnel ventilation models and analyses allow WSP to account for predominant energy sources. Our team has a thorough understanding of tunnel energy flows and balances.
Working closely with tunnel operators, our tunnel ventilation engineers have developed a deep understanding and appreciation of operational constraints. We develop operational strategies and responses that use existing assets to best effect under changing operating conditions, such as service level enhancements and infrastructure upgrades.
