TRANSPORTATION / CIVIL ENGINEERING

Transport infrastructures are the pulsating lifelines of our modern society. Designing of roads and railways and their maintenance require interdisciplinary actions. Especially when building under operation requires proven abilities, which Heierli AG can provide.

Our business division Traffic & Civil Underground provides, from strategic planning and preliminary studies, preparation and construction projects, procurement and the actual implementation, including construction management, all phases of civil engineering.

The focus is on large-scale infrastructure projects such as national and cantonal road construction or regional road-rail projects. We also have great competencies in municipal civil engineering, the maintenance of infrastructure, including consultancy services.

Due to many years of experience, we have proven competence in the areas of:

  • Projectmanagement of civil engineering projects
  • Design and realization of roads with highways standards
  • Design and realization of roads with canton standards
  • Design and realization of roads with municipal standards
  • Project planning and realization of works in the inner city, but also along motorways
  • Maintenance and renewal of infrastructure, especially roads and bridges
  • Design and realization of noise protection measures
  • Dimensioning of the road superstructure and coating
  • Hydraulically bound bearing layers
  • Test engineer tasks in road construction and civil engineering
  • Expertise in road construction and civil engineering

SPECIALIST CIVIL ENGINEERING

The special deep building division comprises special areas of civil engineering. These special buildings are hardly ever perceived, but are essential for the safe functioning of our society. Planning and realization of special deep structures requires interdisciplinary action based on sound analyzes and great know-how.

In addition to railway technology – in particular the fixed carriageway – we are also working on earthquake, construction dynamics and flight operations. In addition, we have proven competence in the areas of geotechnical engineering, in particular support structures and structures in and around the water. The area is complemented by know-how in the area of overburdened buildings.

Thanks to the proven project management experience, we are able to work out the best solutions for our customers in the following areas:

  • Railway projects / railway technology
  • Fixed track (gravel-free track surface) in tunnels and on bridges
    Vibration and body-borne noise protection in railway construction using mass-spring systems
  • Supporting structures and slope slides (roads, railways, buildings, etc.) including building supervision
  • Building protection and excavation
    Support structures on or in the water
  • Company owned condition with divers
  • Earthquake analyzes of existing buildings, elaboration of earthquake control measures
  • Vibration and vibration measurements with action planning
  • Underground buildings

PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY

Only with a well-founded risk assessment can the required safety and the corresponding protective measures be ensured.
The protection of people, goods, functions and the environment is the focus of our efforts. In addition to the protection against gravitational natural hazards (flood, debris, landslides and avalanches), we are dealing with human active dangers, e.g. Sabotage, terrorism and armed conflicts.

We process the entire risk process from the definition of the hazard to the determination of the occurrence probabilities and the resulting risks. Risk analysis, risk planning and implementation as well as controlling are carried out in close cooperation with our customers. Deepened know-how is available to our customers in the following areas.

Risk management:

  • Hazard analyzes and determination of possible occurrence of natural hazards and human hazards
  • Risk assessment and safety advice
  • Protection concepts with action planning for all project phases
  • Protection against weapons impact
  • Constructional protection against weapons for whole systems and individual objects against sabotage, terror and armed conflicts
  • Solution concepts, planning to implement protective measures against effects of shock and pressure from impact of various weapons
  • Instructions for the construction, operation, maintenance and liquidation of protective structures

Protection against gravitational hazards:

  • Questions in the field of water management
  • Revitalization studies of streams and rivers
  • Planning and realization of flood protection measures
  • Recording and measurement of slope slides
  • Planning and implementation of slope protection measures
