Tunnels

At Inspire, we have a team of experienced and highly skilled tunnel engineers. All our engineers hold Tunnel Engineering competency STE6, meaning they possess all the knowledge and skills to assess the structure and materials of a tunnel.


Underground tunnels are complex feats of engineering which require specialist engineering knowledge. It is extremely important that any tunnel which is used has regular examinations undertaken to ensure the integrity of the structure isn’t compromised.

 

Experienced and Highly Skilled

 

At Inspire, we have a team of experienced and highly skilled tunnel engineers. All our engineers hold Tunnel Engineering competency STE6, meaning they possess all the knowledge and skills to assess the fundamental structures and materials of a tunnel. The majority of our tunnel engineers also hold STE2 competency, which affords an even deeper knowledge to enhance the standards of their examinations.

The bottom line is that our Inspire engineers have all the experience and qualifications to undertake comprehensive, accurate tunnel examinations.

Tunnels come in a huge range of shapes, sizes and styles, using a diverse array of materials to carry out different purposes supporting different loads at different depths underground. Although the basic principles involved in successful tunnel engineering are similar, there is clearly a lot involved that makes every tunnel quite unique. For this reason, if you are responsible for the safety of a tunnel you shouldn’t even consider cutting any corners when it comes to inspections. Our Inspire engineers have undertaken countless tunnel examinations all over the United Kingdom, and are familiar with every type of construction and material. Our engineers can give you a thorough assessment of the status of a tunnel, but that isn’t all.

 

Tunnel Management Strategies

 

Having an examination of a tunnel’s current status performed is only part of the overall process. You need to have an up-to-date, relevant Tunnel Management Strategy in place. This is to ensure that all the necessary maintenance procedures are carried out for a defined period of time, keeping the tunnel in good condition to the very best of your ability.

If you are responsible for the maintenance of a tunnel, even if it is closed to the public, you should be working to ensure it is structurally sound. To ensure this you need to have examinations carried out and a Tunnel Management Strategy. Please get in touch with Inspire today for further information on what we can do to help.
