We design below-grades space for subway systems, tunnels and other infrastructure.
Unlike typical basements, these structures often have unique shapes, long spans between floor levels, heavy loads and unbalanced uplift forces – all of which push the limits of conventional design. They are also often built in dense urban areas. These factors make it critical that designers have a thorough understanding of construction methods and of the response of surrounding ground and adjacent structures.
We apply our expertise in construction engineering and use our finite element analysis tools to model stage-by-stage construction sequences. This approach enables our teams to develop innovative, constructable designs that solve complex problems on demanding projects.
