Avalanche Protection Capabilities
We're experienced in the planning and construction required for the avalanche protection structures and systems in limited access terrain having completed installations over 13,000ft ASL (4,000m). Detailed planning is required for our teams to be fully efficient to construct these systems in the short alpine summer while working on remote mountainous and sometimes high altitude terrain.
Our teams undertake the construction of the many varieties of the passive avalanche barriers, fences and snow netting along with a range of remote avalanche control systems and towers. We undertake the excavation, anchoring and construction of the mass concrete foundations and the the above-ground structures using heavy lift helicopters for avalanche protection of road and rail corridors and snow resorts.
