Applus+ infrastructure services are addressed to the construction and maintenance of civil infrastructures and facilities that may be private or public.
These infrastructures, facilities, and assets allow the development of society, facilitating the transport and communication of people and goods, including mainly roads & bridges, railways, ports, airports, harbors, water infrastructures, tunnels, or dams.
Infrastructure’s life cycle comprises its planning, design, construction, and maintenance. We provide infrastructure services at all stages of a project, from design to construction and O&M phases.
Services such as quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC), inspection, supervision, laboratory testing, instrumentation, and monitoring or geotechnical works are required as part of the process for infrastructure construction.
We also ensure high-quality control throughout the construction process using advanced tools in the field and exploring the practical application of advanced technologies to provide innovative, cost-effective, and appropriate infrastructure solutions. Laser scanning, fiber optics, software platforms for instrumentation and monitoring, inspection tools in the field, digital twin, and BIM (Building Information Modelling) models, are current tools used on a daily basis in order to improve our efficiency, accuracy, and safety in our service.
During the infrastructure design phase, we deliver feasibility studies, preliminary design, detailed design and design review, flow modeling, as-built projects, topographical services, geotechnical engineering, geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring, laboratory testing, and BIM services.
In infrastructure construction, we offer a portfolio that includes: on-site inspection and supervision services, topography survey, instrumentation and monitoring, construction materials testing, contract management, technical office service, health, and safety, expert advisory, BIM, or construction environmental impact studies, among others.
Finally, for infrastructure maintenance, we can provide structural health monitoring, asset integrity management, pipeline rehabilitation, road management, digital twin, BIM, and O&M supervision services.
