Alan Auld Engineering Ltd (AAE) were in attendance at the NCE Tunnelling Summit 2015. This year’s event explored major upcoming projects such as HS2, Thames Tideway Tunnel and the London Underground station upgrades programme, as well as exploring innovative projects and solutions across the industry. Several past and present projects that AAE have contributed towards were presented on both a technical and commercial level.
These included: Vauxhall Station Upgrade, Shieldhall Tunnel & The York Potash Mine. Simon Addeyman from London Underground Ltd also discussed the benefits of early procurement and tier II engagements that are being successfully utilised on the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade Project to lower outcome costs in which AAE are supplying the permanent and temporary square works design and sequencing.
All in all, a very interesting event where the British Tunnelling Industry got a good insight into the future of tunnelling in the UK!
