Into the third dimension: Contractors worldwide are starting to demand the implementation of 3D technology and with good reason – they simply gain much higher returns on their investments. By combining two new digital technologies with high power computing, Ramboll assessed the structural vulnerabilities of the world’s oldest iron bridge in about half the time of conventional methods.

When structures have a healing effect: Ramboll is designing a new sense-stimulating children’s hospitals to promote healing by considering the special physical and mental needs of hospitalised children and their families. As a result, floor heating has been installed in areas where children are likely to sit down and play, and noise and vibrations have been addressed as children are particularly sensitive to noise. Materials, coatings and colours have been carefully chosen for all visible surfaces to make them safe to use, easy to clean, and also interesting to look at and feel with your hands. More >

Common signalling makes rail travel smoother: The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) is the most efficient tool to make the European railway network interoperable. Denmark is the first country in Europe to upgrade its entire signalling system, and Ramboll is heading the complicated work. More >

When less becomes more: Cross-laminated timber technology that allows us to design wooden high-rise buildings that are resource efficient, but also great to live in. A decade ago, this was unthinkable. On course to be the tallest building of its kind, Dalston Lane is a 121 unit residential development in the London Borough of Hackney. More >

Forming foundations for the future: At sea, innovative foundation design technology developed in the Oil & Gas industry allows offshore wind turbines to be installed in a single lifting and assembly process that reduces construction time and expenses. This lowers renewable energy costs, which is the main barrier to accelerating the green transition. 

Zooming in on New York’s climate challenges: New York is inspired by the scale of Copenhagen’s blue-green infrastructure. The city’s department of environmental protection has selected Ramboll to analyse whether similar solutions can also pay off in the Big Apple. More >

Making welcoming centres more welcoming: In Germany, Ramboll’s management consultants are helping to make 10 immigration welcome centres more welcoming and less stressful for all concerned. More >
