      The Channel Tunnel or Chunnel is a 31 mile tunnel running underneath the English Channel to carry Eurostar trains and freight trains between the UK and France. Construction of the tunnel started in , the project took approximately 20% longer than planned (at 6 years vs. 5 years) and came in 80% overbudget (at billion pounds vs. a. that sustainable development is supported by three pillars: environment, society and economics. Since construction plays an important role in the world’s economy and society has a strong environmental impact, it seems obvious to link it with the sustainable development concept .

    Economics of the Construction Industry, the first book on the subject) undertook many studies on the role of the construction industry in economic development and on the improvement of the industries of developing countries for the World Bank and the UK government. In a doctoral thesis (Ofori, ), the intention was to develop ideas thatFile Size: KB. soil tunnels, has become increasingly important in our urban areas where many of the other forms of construction, typically cut and cover and trench types, have such adverse impacts. Loss of critical utilities and damage to neighbouring structures has important legal and economic consequences when assessing project costs and Size: 1MB.

    Methods of Tunnel Construction. The method of Tunnel construction adopted for a project depends on various factors. Tunnel construction and Tunnel Engineering is considered to be one of the most sophisticated and specialized art in the field of Civil ictable ground conditions, environmental requirements and geological factors makes Tunneling a challenging job. Construction companies and construction suppliers have a circular effect on each other, and the state of the economy determines whether that effect is negative or positive. For example, in an economic downturn, fewer construction jobs mean less business for suppliers, which could drive prices higher or force suppliers out of business.

Office of Rail Technology.]. The direct construction costs, as “concrete works for the tunnel wall”, are higher than the costs of the technical facilities (e.g. lighting, ventilation). The relation is contrary in the operation phase, caused by the shorter life expectancy of the facilities and the numerous processes to ensure safe Size: KB.

Environmental restoration. The construction of the Channel Tunnel involved a long and difficult decision making process expanding over 25 years.

Once the Governments decided to proceed with the project, the actual construction of the Tunnel was disrupted by significant financial difficulties that nearly led to the collapse of the project well before it started by: Although in India, tunnel construction started in the 19th century, the factors affecting tunnelling productivity and their influence on successful project completion are not known.

This is one of the main economic factor from building construction project point of view. One has to calculate the ratio of investment in the project to return generated from the projects.

It is essential to decide whether project is economical viable or not. by the unique supply chain industrial structure of the construction sector for the diffusion of e-business technologies in the construction industry is investigated.

This is reported on through a detailed analysis of twelve firm case studies in a supply cluster around a state government agency responsible for development and implementation of eBusiness policy and infrastructure by: 2. Economic development requires improved competitiveness and employment creation across many sectors of the economy.

Economic development is the sustained increase in income of all members of society so as to be free from material want. The only modern guide to all aspects of practical tunnel construction.

Practical Tunnel Construction fills a void in the literature for a practical guide to tunnel construction. By taking the reader through a brief introduction and history to a comprehensive discussion of how the geological factors affect tunneling, the author covers the stages and technology that are common today without.

A) Economic Factors in Economic Development: In a country’s economic development the role of economic factors is decisive. The stock of capital and the rate of capital accumulation in most cases settle the question whether at a juven point of time a country will grow or not. This tunneling on-demand seminar includes the selection and installation of tunnel lining, the construction of shafts, key aspects of design, specification, cost, and construction and risk management during tunnel design and construction.

Utilizing the tunneling techniques and numerous case studies will be discussed. social and economic development of the region is ana-lysed by Ginevičius and Podvezko (), risk communi-cation in organizations is analysed by Conchie and Burns ().

Related literature shows that there is very little scope of participation for common people in decision making, management and supervision of many community based development.

Tunnels are dug in types of materials varying from soft clay to hard rock. The method of tunnel construction depends on such factors as the ground conditions, the ground water conditions, the length and diameter of the tunnel drive, the depth of the tunnel, the logistics of supporting the tunnel excavation.

The first local design and construction standard for utility tunnels in China is the construction standard of the utility tunnel in Shanghai World Expo (DG/TJ, ), many cities such as Beijing and Wuhan have developed their own standards for guidance of local utility tunnel construction.

But most of the standards’ research concerns trunk Cited by: development costs. The majority of civil engineering tunneling projects is now carried out by mechanical excavation rather than drill and blast methods. Drill and blast is also a well-developed technology, and the choice of excavation method becomes a matter of economics for both civil construction and by: economic rationale 4.
