Construction & Technology

You cannot separate construction and geology – no tunneling without earth science expert opinion and site investigation. The construction of the Gotthard Base Tunnel – the longest tunnel in the world - was also characterized by large geological challenges. Because natural hazards as well as settlement densities are increasing, a closer cooperation is required between geologists and the building industry with regards construction projects.

Construction site

The construction site is to be evaluated, described and investigated in detail for the professional execution of construction projects.

Tunneling

The rock mass must be described and investigated in detail for the professional project planning and execution of underground structures. Here geologists and engineers must work closely together.
