We are happy to be a part of this year’s Scotland Build Expo. Come and find our stall G32 on 23 / 24 November at the Glasgow SECC where you can meet some of our dewatering experts. We’ll be happy to answer any questions about our industry and to tell you what we’ve been up to and maybe a glimpse of what we’ll have up our sleeves next. So come and say hello.
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.

WJ Groundwater’s Toby Roberts was one of three speakers at a well-attended Groundwater Control In Urban Areas conference organised jointly by the Geological Society Engineering Group and British Geotechnical Association. The event was a part of the celebration of a Year of Water and was focused on dewatering. Toby was one of the experts invited to speak about the groundwater control in cities and its challenges – including increasingly restricted locations and potential impacts arising from the interaction of dewatering and urban environments. The three speakers explored the subject using examples of recent dewatering projects in the London Basin.
Toby gave a presentation concerning dewatering and depressurisation strategies used to target the Lambeth Group Channel Sands for the tunnel works in London.
