________________ Tunnel construction is a complex business and its success is closely linked to the smooth cooperation of many players. Quickness, which means efficiency on the one hand, and safety, which means minimization of risks on the other are the most important parameters for a good project progress. This is where real team work is required so that all parties involved can see the light at the end of the tunnel quickly and as expected.
Generally, the planning, approval and tender phase of tunnelling projects requires considerably more time than the tunnel construction itself. Already at an early stage, Herrenknecht's experience helps to keep the development phase as short as possible. We assist in bringing together the technical concepts of clients, planners and construction companies. As an experienced team in association with our numerous subsidiaries we have managed many construction processes efficiently and on a routine basis. This is an essential contribution to time-saving solutions.
Tailor-made project planning and execution
Following the start of construction, not only the efficiency and reliability of our tunnel boring machines, but also the principle of "Full Range Tunnelling" provide for rapid construction progress.We tie up project-specific service packages for our customers, which for instance contain global spare parts management, maintenance and repair services around the clock and additional services from our associated companies. Our principle is that of a custom tailor, which means our customers get exactly what they need. Together with the client and the construction company, our core team - including scientists and universities if needed - forms the crew who achieves what Herrenknecht calls "Teamwork Tunnelling" by its interplay and the joint execution of unique projects. Dealing carefully with resources, the environment, as well as time and finance budgets at the same time.
