Through rock mechanics and tunneling design, we help our customers use their property more efficiently; for example, by locating operations underground. In addition to civil defense shelters, a variety of other activities can be located underground, such as public transportation, parking, and sports. In Helsinki, there are several underground pedestrian tunnels that connect the different functions of the city.
Good design ensures that underground facilities can be constructed safely and economically while maintaining above-ground functions. As its name implies, Rockplan is a design agency specializing in rock engineering design and we have been involved in many of Finland’s largest underground projects.
Rock mechanics models rock structure alternatives and analyzes rock behavior using three-dimensional models. Based on these models, detailed excavation, reinforcement and sealing plans are developed so that the work can be carried out efficiently and safely.
We provide all rock engineering design services for all phases of the project, from rock mechanical analyses and simulations to geological surveys as well as excavation, reinforcement and grouting design.
