Our international experts in geotechnical engineering understand how to identify and mitigate ground-related risks through rigorous investigation, analysis and design. We have completed large scale schemes across all construction sectors, providing designs including foundations, retaining walls, tunnels, shafts, earthworks and slopes, We believe in integrated geotechnical and structural design teams capable of providing fully coordinated solutions, maximising the reliability and efficiency of our projects.
Our geotechnical engineers continually contribute to interesting and challenging projects, many of which are major national and international schemes. For buildings, we have provided foundation and basement designs for the Shard in London, the New Children’s Hospital in Dublin and Titanic Belfast. We often undertake complex 3D modelling for these types of projects to understand the impact on surrounding assets due to ground and structural movements. Our infrastructure projects include the M50 in Dublin, the A32 Cherrymount Link in Enniskillen and the Route 7 Motorway in Kosovo. We provide detailed earthworks and sub-structure solutions for these types of large highway schemes.
Geotechnical expertise is vital for the successful creation of underground space for tunnels, cross-passages, metro stations, deep shafts and other below ground structures. ByrneLooby have successfully delivered many underground space projects, solving critical infrastructure needs. We have worked on Bank Station and Crossrail in London and the Doha Metro in Qatar. We have also completed a number of shafts for water projects, such as the Elan Valley Aqueduct in Wales and the award-winning deep shaft at Deephams sewage treatment plant in London.
Our geotechnical engineers work in multi-disciplinary teams, providing solutions on projects as diverse as wind farms, port and harbour facilities, water and wastewater infrastructure, flood alleviation, coastal protection, sports stadia and airports. Our experience, expertise and in-depth knowledge of geotechnical construction processes ensures we offer the optimal cost, program and quality balance. We assist with determining ideal construction sequencing, preparing creative yet practical geotechnical solutions and our senior staff provide on-going support during construction.
