So far 2016 has been a year of mixed fortune for WJ Groundwater-sponsored cycle squad Team Frankie’s. One of the biggest changes is the reduced racing calendar. However, the team continues to grow apace and nowadays it has a healthy mix of locals and ex-pats from across a wide range of ages and backgrounds.

On the 10th of May, WJ Groundwater’s Director (Overseas) Paul Turner attended a MEED Breakfast Event entitled, The Outlook for GCC Construction and Projects. The idea behind the event was to share ideas where ‘Chatham House Rules’ have been invoked. For those curious, the rules were invented in order to encourage open discussion on any matters without the speaker having to go ‘on record’. In effect, information is shared freely but the speaker can remain anonymous and uncredited if the speech is documented.
The School of Engineering at American University Dubai (AUD) hosted the 3rd edition Deep Foundations Institute Middle East Conference (DFIMEC) 2016. The event is one of the most important and well attended in the region and is a leading technical conference in the field of foundation engineering.
