Abstract: The paper stresses an interdisciplinary approach, highlights the necessary background knowledge, expounds basic principles in the selection of construction materials, appraisal of loads, forces, and deformations, seasonal and on-site construction management, prefabrication for rapid on-site erection, subsurface tunnel and chamber construction, and closes with overall concluding remarks specifically directed to cold region, subarctic, arctic, and antarctic engineering construction.
