Want To Connect Commercial Buildings? Go Underground
If you have buildings for your business on separate sides of a street, or if you would like to connect your buildings across a road or area, and you aren't sure if you should go in the air or below the ground, you want to consider going below ground. There are a lot of advantages to going under the ground instead of trying to create a walkway between the buildings in the air, and it may be the only way you can get it done. Here are a few reasons to consider the underground route.
Avoid Weather Related Issues
A lot of people are worried walking through suspended bridges if there is a heavy rain or snowfall, or if the wind is strong. You won't have to worry about these weather related issues when you have an underground tunnel, and you don't have to worry about the weather doing damage to your tunnel throughout the year.
Have a Secure Location
The tunnel not only allows you to avoid being in a lifted object in the air in bad weather, but it also gives you a place to have the staff go if there is a tornado warning, or if they need to get in a shelter. The concreate walls will act as a protective barrier, and they are ideal if you are in area that has a lot of high wind and tornado or hurricane concerns.
Don't Worry about Aesthetics
When you are putting something in the air between the two buildings you want to be sure that it looks good, and that it improves the look of your building. If you use a lot of glass someone will have to clean it all the time, inside and out, and if you use a building material you have to find something light enough that won't be too heavy to keep in the air. With an unground option you don't have to worry about these things.
Going above ground may be very difficult if a lot of trucks pass through the road, if there are air restrictions, and if you have a very long distance to go. Putting in an underground pipe that is large enough to act as a walkway may be the easiest way to get what you need. Get costs from different underground tunnel civil engineering specialists, and see what they think you should do to get the project started, and to get it done fast.
