Tunnels and Underground Construction

Tunnels transform transportation networks by linking nations, uniting communities and reducing travel time. Tunnel design and construction requires a wide range of engineering skills to deliver innovative solutions.

Bringing together all required disciplines under one roof, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff 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.

We have hands-on experience with all types of tunnels—rock, soft ground, cut-and-cover, immersed tunnel, micro, jacked, and Austrian tunneling/sequential excavation method. Our engineers have worked on a wide variety of underground construction projects across the globe, from road tunnels and subway stations to underground nuclear waste repositories and water conveyance. 

Our core tunnel engineering services are grouped into six areas:

  • Rock Engineering
  • Hydrology and Geology
  • Tunnel Structural Design
  • Fire and Risk Engineering
  • Automation and Ventilation Systems
  • Lighting
