In our business, daily on-site experience is the driver for development of increasingly effective solutions. Continuous communication between the site team and the R&D unit, a natural vocation for identifying market trends, constant contact with our colleagues at EnginSoft, the world leader in modeling, have generated results with a significant impact for SWS Engineering operations.

One example is “Smart Tunnelling”, a research project developed for operators like us, who construct underground works in urban areas. The “Smart Tunnelling” platform combines and implements IT tools and methodologies to analyze and minimize sovrastructural risk.

Launched in 2014, the project is intended for the engineering community (cost-effective computing power, advanced computer software development, promotion of the BIM project philosophy for underground work), and for the construction industry (industrialization of solutions, introduction of new materials and advanced sensorial equipment, ability to construct increasingly ambitious works).
