Timber Heading

Timber Heading - Delta Civil Engineering

We have extensive experience using Timber Headings in tunnel construction

Timber Heading is a traditional and versatile method of manual tunnel construction where hardwood timbers are used to create ground support after the tunnel has been excavated. Timber Heading is still frequently used in situations where there are a large number of services in the path of a new tunnel. 

Delta Civil Engineering has extensive experience using timber headings within tunnelling solutions. Using Timber Headings can be more cost effective in situations, for example, where the there are short sections of tunnelling. This type of tunnelling can also be installed in varying ground conditions.
