WHAT WE DOResearch and Development

Research and Development

ESCO R&D Institute enhances its technological competitiveness and secures the specialized intellectual property
by conducting various joint R&D projects
with research institutes such as the Korean Society of Civil Engineers (KSCE),
the Korean Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (KTA), the Korean Geotechnical Society (KGS), universities,
and academies.

Techniques to Provide a Large Underground Space

Underground space is a valuable resource, particularly in the mega-cities, for comfortable urban daily life.
The utilization of underground space is now expanded not only to infrastructure development but also to underground storage facilities. ESCO R&D Institute has been carrying out R&D projects to develop cost-effective solutions for the creation of underground spaces on
a large scale.

Development of Asset Management System for Underground Structures
ESCO R&D Institute has an ongoing R&D Project entitled as “Development of a Maintenance Platform based on Asset Management for the Underground Structure of Plants and Large Scale Utilities.” This project is to develop performance and deterioration prediction algorithm and to establish of an asset management system
for underground facilities which can be effectively controlled and managed once it is completed.
