Underground construction jobsite
Underground construction for purposes such as road tunnels, railway tunnels, metro and utility tunnels are subjected to severe stress from nature. They require construction systems able to ensure durability and a constant protection against ground water and environmental exposure. Simultaneously, they must be able to withstand the requirements of different operating modes. Sigunit, Sikament, Sika Viscocrete and Sika Plan membranes are heritage products which are still used extensively in tunnelling works today.
