Ground and Rock Engineering

A great deal of our built environment remains invisible to our eyes, hidden under the surface making it all stay in place. We design solutions which will remove liability and optimise assets. Ground and rock engineering experts examine, measure and design safe, user-friendly and sustainable solutions for underground constructions.


Strength of our team is the ability to combine different fields of engineering, such as geotechnical and rock engineering when designing special and underground structures.  Our aim is to find the most cost efficient solution of the highest quality for our clients.  Our most important clients are cities and private contractors. 

Our experts offer solutions for foundation surveys, detailed design, space reservation planning for rock facilities, and their 3D modelling. WSP has intense experience in the design of tunnels, railways and parking halls. We provide our ground engineering services in such remarkable projects as Kehärata Ring railway in Vantaa and Länsimetro Western subway in Espoo.
