With an emphasis on the Future of Tunnelling, the TAC 2020-One Toronto conference program is unchanged from that originally planned and will continue to include plenary presentations, technical sessions and a trade exhibition, all designed to highlight advancements in tunnelling design, construction and delivery – in Canada and around the world.
Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the majestic, free-standing CN Tower. The conference’s downtown Toronto location offers delegates much in the way of activities and excursions, including our opening Icebreaker Reception at the Hockey Hall of Fame, our TAC Awards dinner at Casa Loma, and exclusive site visits to major Metropolitan Toronto tunnelling projects.
Our expert will hold a presentation in order to exchange experiences. Join the session from Laurence Delplace, Regional Manager France & Belgium!
Challenges of Metro Projects: Selected Aspects
Urbanization is one of the key megatrends driving global economic growth. Cities are already home to more than half of the world’s population, and it is estimated that this percentage will grow significantly by 2050. With increasing urbanization, cities face significant challenges, including the need for sufficient and appropriate infrastructure, especially transport infrastructure. Urban mobility projects are highly complex as they attract, impact and subsequently involve all kinds of stakeholders. Amberg Engineering AG has been and currently is involved in Metro projects all around the world.
Design aspects related to geotechnics, site logistics, excavation works, fire safety, and ventilation will be elaborated by focusing on a selection of projects Amberg Engineering AG is involved in. In addition, the paper will highlight differences when designing metro schemes in different parts of the world.
