Systems architecture: where design meets engineering

Our systems architecture specialists provide the link between project management, design, engineering, and construction, throughout the entire lifecycle of the system. Our team works to deliver a seamlessly integrated design of technical installations, industrial automation and service installations to ensure total interoperability.
Process flow

Working with project managers and designers on the big picture and engineers and construction team on the details, our systems architects create the project interface. They define a common language ensuring system interoperability, helping protect user safety and avoid incident-related downtime.

The partnership between Royal HaskoningDHV and Witteveen+Bos gives our systems architects access to thousands of experts across the full engineering spectrum to advise or assist.

Whether working on an entirely new tunnel project or a renovation, our team uses the latest in digital tools and technology, working closely with colleagues from BIM and digital twin teams to visualise and validate tunnel project plans. This supports stakeholder engagement and plays a key role in reducing the cost and time.

Delivering systems architecture

Engineering work is people work
Systems architecture is about more than the engineering or the design, ultimately, it’s about people. Coordinating and interfacing between different internal teams, external contractors, stakeholders, and clients, throughout the tunnel system’s lifecycle ensures we meet both engineering and regulatory requirements and client and user needs.
Digital innovation
Designing tunnel system architecture starts with ensuring everyone involved, from designers to contractors is using a common language and definitions. Through model-based system engineering, our team creates a single source of truth, eliminating duplication and ensuring all involved can operate efficiently and effectively.
Stakeholder engagement

Working closely with our BIM and Digital Twin teams our systems architects also play a key role in stakeholder engagement. Incorporating system architecture into the visualisation of tunnel projects helps refine designs and identify potential challenges as the tunnel project moves from design to construction.

Power of partnership

Thanks to the long-established partnership between Royal HaskoningDHV and Witeveen+Bos, TEC’s experts have access to global and cross discipline experts in all engineering sectors, ensuring they always take a holistic approach to a tunnel project.
