Spotlight on a shortlisted firm:


Atkins has been shortlisted in the category Tunnel Design Firm of the Year.

Atkins told the judges that its work encompasses the complete range of tunnel related activities from high level feasibility advice to detailed design work and construction support.

Investment in internal training and research and development encourages Atkins tunnelling teams to develop new tools and approaches, and explore and expand the boundaries of current design, the company said.

Atkins listed its top three tunnelling achievements since January 2010 as leading the design of Crossrail's bored tunnels, taking on a consultant role in the extension of Hong Kong's railway network, and providing acclaimed design work on Singapore's MTR system.

Spotlight on a shortlisted firm:


SsangYong has been shortlisted in the category Tunnelling Project of the Year ($100m - $1bn).

Contract 921 – Design & Construction of Station & Tunnels at Rochor and Little India for the Downtown Line 2 Project

At S$803M, Contract 921 is the largest value MRT Contract ever awarded in the history of MRT Construction in Singapore. The Project comprises two 30m deep MRT Stations at Little India and Rochor, SCL Tunnels under the existing North East Line (NEL) MRT Tunnels, Twin Bored Tunnels, Cut & Cover Tunnels and Alteration works to the existing Little India NEL Station to create an Interchange Station. The Project also involves the construction of over 1km of a new 18m wide twin cell Canal RC structure and a 140m long underground section of the future eight lane North-South Expressway on top of the Rochor Station structure.

The Project is SsangYong’s first MRT project outside of Korea and is considered to be the most technically challenging project on the Downtown Line MRT Project.
