The answer to deep-reaching challenges in tunnelling.
A dependable partner
at your side
The necessity of creating underground space for a great variety of purposes has become a steadily more and more attractive concept over the decades. The future of mobility and infrastructure is increasingly under the ground surface. ATE is a special force of Austrian specialists with over 35 years of accumulated expert experience in tunnelling throughout the whole world. We respond to every highly complex geological task with assurance and expertise.
This is why we are
internationally the best
We find efficient solutions
The construction of every tunnel presents multi-layered challenges. The allure of the unknown is out motivation to develop solutions that work. The focus is always efficiency and the foundation of our work an innovative spirit.
We create new living space
The world’s population is growing and, with it, the need for efficient concepts. For example, we move traffic underground, open up new paths, create more convenient connections and, as a result, create more useful living space und increase quality of life.
We create the infrastructure of the future
Tunnel construction is not only key for the demands of constantly increasing traffic. It is also essential for other infrastructure needs. Careful planning can save CO2. We are committed to sustainable processes, saving energy, and protecting our environment.

ATE: For challenges
that go deeper
In tunnelling, projects with special challenges are common. Large projects in particular are not always straightforward. It is precisely the complexity of these projects that drives our curiosity and determination to find a solution, even if needed only for a short section or the final metres of a tunnel. Our projects rely on NATM, a technique to whose development and optimisation we are a major contributor.
We are a special force in tunnelling. IGT and Laabmayr join to form an unbeatable team. Below is a sample of our projects..
