Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0873352637, Hardcover)

North American Tunneling is a “must read” for any professional involved in the underground construction industry. You’ll get a down-and-dirty look into dozens of case histories from throughout the world. You’ll learn about the challenges faced by designers, contractors, suppliers, and business owners, and how they worked together to overcome them.

Taken from a collection of papers presented at the June 2008 North American Tunneling Conference, you’ll benefit from the latest thinking on technical advances; new solutions to old problems; fire safety and risk management; design considerations; complex systems; overcoming changes; construction management; cost estimating and scheduling; and tunnel rehabilitation and repair.

Whether it’s pipe jacking under the Leipzig train station, boring a water tunnel beneath New York Harbor, or tunneling under glaciers in British Columbia, these internationally recognized experts share their real-life experiences and insights into this rapidly evolving industry.

You’ll also get a sneak peak into major projects on the drawing boards, projects that will be making big headlines in the months and years ahead.
