Best Practice Strategies for Cost Efficient Design, Construction, Enhanced Service Life and Safety of Tunnels

Tunnel Design & Construction Northeast Asia is a comprehensive event on trends and technologies for the cost effective tunnel design, construction and maintenance for tunnels.

The event will cover design codes for tunnels, various construction methods employed, cost-benefit analysis, recent advancements in M&E, fire/safety/evacuation procedures, ventilation/pollution control and trends in geotechnical investigations for subsurface infrastructure construction.

Tunnel Design & Construction Northeast Asia will cover current projects under planning/design/construction in:

- P R China
- Hong Kong
- S. Korea
- Taiwan
- Vietnam
- Japan

How to Develop Cost Effective Tunnel Infrastructure?
FACT: Asset owners in Asia are realising that tunnel infrastructure is the solution for future needs in transport and utility. The current cost structure of developing tunnels is comparatively higher to alternative options, though. Tunnel production stakeholders are looking to bring down the cost of tunnel systems, which will make them desirable for asset owners.

How to Improve the Safety and Comfort Standards of Tunnels?
FACT: As the lengths and operating depths for tunnels keep increasing, fire safety, evacuation facilities, M&E and ventilation needs have become vital for all the stakeholders. Improving and integrating these parameters is a challenge for designers and developers of subsurface infrastructure.

How to Optimally Enhance Service Life of Tunnels?
FACT: At the current cost of construction and maintenance, tunnels are expected to serve longer than before. Efforts to derive better service life from tunnels are ingrained right from the stage of design and by following meticulous construction procedures.
