Foundation and geotechnics
We have extensive experience in providing feasibility studies, tender design, detailed design, technical expertise reports, due diligence works as well as design supervision.
Our integrated approach to handling complex geotechnical engineering problems draws on the diverse experience of our specialists. Since our knowledge covers the whole geotechnical engineering field – from structural engineering to environmental engineering and hydrogeology – we can deliver the highest quality in all our projects.
Our structural engineering team can manage any stage of the design process from authority plans to detailed design, and any element of construction works, comprising site supervision, inspection, maintenance and strengthening over the whole life-cycle of structures. Our capabilities also include a wide variety of bridge engineering tasks – from check calculations of load-carrying capacity and bridge assessments to reconstruction projects for steel, concrete and composite bridges.
With leading edge expertise in a wide range of engineering-purpose software, we provide optimised solutions with enhanced performance and greater predictability.
Our staff possess decades of experience in drawing and design, automated or batch processing, full 3D modelling and in building information modelling (BIM) environments. We provide software development, data entry and management, as well as the training of, and programming for engineering software and geographic information systems (GIS).
We have full access to all discipline-specific AutoCAD and MicroStation CAD-GIS-BIM software applications through our corporate license.

We’ve helped shape and develop several high-profile, award-winning tunnelling projects – some key examples include London’s Crossrail and Victoria Station Upgrade, Delhi Metro Phase 2 and the Bergen Light Rail Tram.
Our team has worked on tunnels of all types – from metros and road tunnels to radioactive waste repositories and hydropower projects – at every stage of the project life cycle – from pre-feasibility and design through to construction and inspection.
We have a strong reputation for providing innovative and practical solutions on time, under the most challenging deadlines. Our state-of-the-art research has been recognised by awards, publications and invitations to speak in leading conferences.
Members of the Tunnel Resource Centre work closely with our geotechnical, structural and environmental engineers in Budapest. Our approach of flexibility and open-communication has been key to the successful delivery of complex projects.

Our award-winning technical advice can be applied to infrastructure developments in any sector.
We applied our global expertise as lenders’ technical advisor for the M6 motorway PPP project, providing services from the bid submission through to financial close. The project covered three privately financed motorway sections, the 55km section between Érd and Dunaújváros, the 80km section between Szekszárd and Pécs and the 65km section between Dunaújváros and Szekszárd.
