Concrete Utility Tunnel Restoration
The Greater Boston area has several utility & pedestrian tunnels used for infrastructure utilities, steam lines, IT, MEP and linked building access. Since institutions, medical facilities, universities and utility infrastructures rely on these essential tunnels to keep their components and systems safe and functional, maintenance, repair, and protection of these systems are critical. A concrete tunnel can deteriorate due to several factors:
- Water infiltration and carried contaminants
- Mechanical/Physical impact
- Extreme humidity
- Differential foundation settling
These elements can cause cracks, delamination, corrosion of embedded steel, and voids in the concrete, creating unsafe conditions, compromise to services and concerns about structural integrity.
