Tunnel Factory


Tunnel Factory is a transverse team across VINCI Construction including VINCI Construction Grands Projets, Bessac, Dodin Campenon Bernard, VINCI Construction France and SIXENSE. It is dedicated to tunnels and mobilizes its resources to work on both short- and long-term R&D projects. Working with construction sites, it innovates and develops R&D projects aimed at preparing the future of tunnels and tunneling.

The growth in worldwide tunneling needs with high technological and economic performance associated with the necessity to reduce CO2 emissions has pushed the Tunnel Factory to focus on how to speed up the construction process and bring new technologies into tunneling activities. Having the ability to encourage civil engineers, data scientists, and robotics engineers to work together is a feature that drives Tunnel Factory’s missions to successful outcomes. Increased safety and better risk management generated by innovation lead to lower costs, higher profitability, and improved Client experience.
