Ramboll has 50 years’ experience bringing innovative major crossings to life such as the iconic Great Belt Bridge.
Our major crossings track record includes the Queensferry Crossing, the world’s longest three-tower cable-stayed bridge, and the Fehmarnbelt Link, which is on course to become the longest combined road and rail immersed tunnel in the world.
We provide clients with expertise across the entire infrastructure life cycle, from cradle to grave covering early stage concept and feasibility studies to detailed design, through to operation and maintenance design.
Complete and integrated service
Our complete service comprises all the design, engineering, environmental, sustainability, and project and cost management skills needed for any type of major crossing. We add value to projects by offering specialist supplementary services such as lighting, ventilation, fire safety, mechanical & electrical engineering, and access strategies.
We are experienced in bringing together large teams of internal and external specialists to deliver the best solutions. Our integrated multidisciplinary approach is combined with a passion for innovative design to provide clients with inspiring, safe, sustainable, and cost-effective infrastructure.
We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to fully understand and meet their individual needs. We work as a trusted partner to contractors in design and build (D&B or design and construct D&C), with public authorities in more traditional design roles, and in PPP projects offering the full technical support service to complement the financial modelling.
Ramboll’s impressive repertoire of bridge projects over the course of 60 years is a testament to our team's ambition to deliver inspiring structures that not only perform functionally, but also create a sense of place.
We offer a comprehensive service covering all bridge types and sizes:
- Suspension bridges
- Cable stayed bridges
- Arch bridges
- Pedestrian and moveable bridges
- Floating bridges
Our reputation for innovation is founded on projects such as Gateshead Millennium Bridge: the first tilting bridge in the world, as well as the world’s longest floating bridge, which is being planned between Trondheim and Fosen in Norway.
Ramboll’s tunnel engineers are proud to be international and work on all types of projects, with all levels of complexity.
Because Ramboll is an independent company, we can choose our work and therefore, our tunnel engineers have a very varied project portfolio. We work on the micro to macro scale projects worldwide. Even a few hours of advice has shown to give an enormous benefit to our clients.
To support our dedicated tunnel teams, we offer multidisciplinary services with world class knowledge in support of our immersed and hard rock tunnel designs. Our expertise encompasses tunnels for metro systems, railways, roads, highways, storm and rain water, cyclists, pedestrians and utilities including power and cooling/ heating.
In short, we have the in-house skills to cover the structural design of all types of tunnels. Our core tunnel skills are providing services for immersed (IMT) and bored tunnels (TBM). As examples, we specialise in the design of IMT’s and their construction interfaces, international constructability advice (CA) for major tunnel projects, segmental lining design for bored tunnels and damage risk assessments for structures in urban areas.
Our specialist skills include tunnelling under and close to existing structures, providing permanent diaphragm walls and using a range of top-down and bottom-up methods.
We provide expertise on all tunnel types:
