Ground & underground engineering

Bringing geotechnical insights to life

Ground & underground engineering

Solving growing population challenges using geotechnical knowledge

Combining our global ground and underground engineering expertise with multidisciplinary knowledge helps us meet the evolving needs of our growing communities.

Fundamental to community-shaping road and tunnel, rail and other civil engineering projects, is ground and underground engineering. And we know it well.

Our specialist skills are exemplified through our work on projects across the world such as Melbourne Metro Tunnel, Auckland City Rail Link, Hong Kong Express Rail Link, Hong Kong South Island Line and Singapore Jurong Regional Line, and our knowledge extends across all stages of project delivery, right from the beginning of the conceptual phase and down to the specialist supervision for construction on major projects.

Our geotechnical specialists conceive simple solutions to complex problems, manage geotechnical risks for clients and create novel design approaches using the latest digital tools such as for Deans Head Christchurch.

Our difference

  • We have the best minds for the task – What is the ultimate strength of our ground engineering capability? Our people. Our global team are passionate, and get the job done.
  • Depth of experience – Our expertise cuts across a range of markets including transport, construction, property and resources, with a particular focus on tunnels, tunnel systems, pavements, geotechnical and underground civil and structures. Using our in-depth understanding and broad experience across these disciplines, we are able to build trustworthy relationships with our clients and strongly deliver on projects.
  • All-inclusive approach – Integrating our strengths with our capability and insight, we offer a unified ground and underground engineering approach to the projects we work on.

How we deliver

  • We challenge the status quo – The world is becoming increasingly complex and ambiguous – this draws the need to be more creative, now more than ever. By coupling our skills with our passion for challenging the status quo, we are able to solve our client’s most complex problems.
  • Digital data and design We are at the forefront of using digital tools on our projects. Using new technology, we are able to streamline processes by using tools to better collaborate with our project partners, and our clients.
