Jacked Structures , consultant
James Thomson has been involved over many years developing and employing jacking methods for pipes and structures during his professional career.
He established Jason Consultants Group an international consultancy for the underground infrastructure which included design and management of many projects involving, tunnelling, microtunnelling, and pipe jacking and jacked structures.
In 2007 he formed the Jacked Structures Group with colleagues who he has worked with previously. The group undertakes conceptual and temporary work design and construction management for jacked structures of all types. A wide range of projects both in UK and internationally have been undertaken.
James Thomson has a number of patents in the field including Jacked Arch, Jacked Deck and “Green Tunnels”. These offer alternatives to traditional tunnelling in their ability to create underground transport tunnels and underpasses with shallow cover and minimal surface disruption.
