Size 3 Tunnels
Cost Withheld

On this large housing development some building plant services are shared from one structure to another via undergrade utility tunnels. In some cases high pressure steam is piped thru these tunnels, and over the years the deterioration of the pipes insulation has caused moisture to corrode the steel components of the concrete reinforced tunnels, and their metal deck roofs.

MJBApc designed new tunnels, and also planned the phasing for the work in order to provide minimum service disruption to the buildings affected by the project.
