Through a broad range of innovations, this UK-based scale-up plans to radically change the way tunnels and other underground constructions are built, enlarged, repaired, maintained and monitored. This new approach is being made possible by lateral thinking, technology transfer and digital transformation. As a result, tunnelling projects should become significantly less expensive, less time-consuming, less of a commercial risk, more sustainable and also safer.
