Delivering world-class civil engineering tunnels

Tunnels are the unseen network connecting our society. Beneath cities, seas and hills we create tunnels that allow urban areas to thrive. We improve transit times and connections and forge important trade links between nations.

Multidisciplinary approach to civil engineering

Our world faces increasing pressures in mobility and transportation – from climate change to increasing urban density. Tunnels offer a solution to not only keep essential industry functions like ports and airports running, but boost and improve the quality of life for everyday people.

Since the 1980's, Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC) has delivered these civil engineering tunnels through our integrated and multidisciplinary expertise. With a specialism in soft-ground tunnelling – our experience covers immersed tunnels, bored tunnels, cut & cover tunnels and underground tunnels.

Whether a bold project seeking innovative ways to connect, to cost-effective solutions designed to address specific needs. We consult and deliver tailored tunnelling solutions that stand the test of time.

How we realise civil engineering tunnels

Full-service tunnel engineering
From the traditional method of cut-and-cover, to innovative concepts for metros in historic environments. We provide a full consultancy and engineering service across the spectrum of tunnel types. With additional services to future-proof and maintain your tunnel, we ensure our solutions are dialled into your specific needs.
An integrated team approach
Our decades of experience in civil engineering tunnels is enhanced by our parent companies Royal HaskoningDHV & Witteveen+Bos. Through their combined engineering heritage, we can call on a global team of sector experts. From climate resilience specialists to digital innovations and more.
Digitalisation as standard
We’ve embraced digital transformations to make our tunnel design and engineering process more efficient and innovative. Using BIM and digital twins in designs to align workflows and creating 3D models as communication tools to wow stakeholders. We ensure your project delivers to the latest standards.
An eye on the future
Targets on sustainability from cities and governments around the world are increasing. We can incorporate sustainability into projects in small and big ways. From energy-efficient lighting and energy neutral tunnels, to reducing material consumption and managing wildlife.
