Geotechnics and Underground Structures

Geotechnical engineering often plays an important role in the design of hydropower plants and underground structures. The foundation of the structures as well as the excavation works have an important influence on the further design development and is typically a major cost driver. We offer comprehensive expert services such as:

  • Measures for foundation improvement and related analysis
  • Design of construction pits and support measures such as sheet piles, diaphragm walls, bored piles and anchoring
  • Slope stability
  • Grouting and cut-off measures
  • Underground structures including excavations and support measures
  • FE analysis for underground structures as well as stability analysis
