    • WJ designed and installed an effective solution to control the groundwater for our basement excavation and deep core areas. Their work was carried out efficiently, safely and to programme

    • Great, friendly service. Very helpful and easy to work with.

      Guy Bainbridge Quantity Surveyor – Mickleton, M Lambe Construction
    • We engaged WJ Groundwater to drill the new ground source energy well at UCL as they had successfully installed an abstraction well at the same site in 2014. This section of the work required careful planning to align with the main site activities. The WJ team carried out the works on programme and worked well with the main contractor to ensure that this logistically challenging project was delivered successfully.

      Iain Howley Director – University College London, Ground Source Consult Ltd
    • WJ’s installation team was excellent. The dewatering and groundwater recharge system worked as per WJ model & design. The works, including the Groundwater Treatment Plant setup and demobilisation, were carried out according to the programme. We received very good technical support with prompt production of monitoring data & reports.  Of special note was WJ‘s expertise in contractor assistance to mitigate risks for our forward planning.

    • WJ Chairman presents Keynote Speech for Fleming Award Ceremony

      WJ Groundwater Chairman, Dr Toby Roberts, with former colleague and BGA Chairman Dr Martin Preene

      On Wednesday 6th December, WJ Groundwater’s Chairman, Dr Toby Roberts, was invited to present the keynote speech at the award ceremony for the illustrious Fleming Award, at the Institute of Civil Engineers in central London.

       

      The Fleming Award, won by WJ in 2006 for their works on the Govan Tunnel project in Glasgow, is an annual award presented by the British Geotechnical Association to recognise excellence in the practical application of geotechnics as part of a larger project, with a strong emphasis on teamwork displayed by the various disciplines across the project team (For more information on the Fleming Award visit here). The 2017 award was presented to the PISA Project, comprising Oxford University, Imperial College London, DONG Energy, The Carbon Trust and SOCOTEC UK (For more information on the 2017 Award visit here). Dr Roberts was invited to present the prestigious keynote speech at the ceremony, taking place whilst the judges deliberated over who the award should be presented to. The speech, entitled ‘Groundwater control for excavations in Cork, Ireland’, covered a series of dewatering case studies from the extensive redevelopment of Cork over the past 20 years.

      WJ have a long history of working and providing dewatering in Cork, having undertaken more than a dozen projects during this time period, including the recent Navigation Square and South Mall developments on the River Lee in the east of the city.
