Poland Update: WJ Groundwater establishes itself in Poland with the successful completion of the Lodz Fabryczna Station project

WJ Groundwater is celebrating the completion of a ‘key’ dewatering project at Lodz Fabryczna, Poland. The grand task took two years to reach completion and it has been instrumental in the establishment of our brand within east European markets. It has also provided us with a springboard to opening our first permanent office in Poland.

The new, three level railway terminal, Lodz Fabryczna is the new key communication hub for the redeveloped city-centre for Lodz. The whole enterprise is a part of a large regeneration scheme that is intended to contribute towards a revitalised local and national railway network. The new infrastructure will provide faster connections to the capital, Warsaw, and other large cities across Poland and Europe. The station is connected to the existing railway network via an underground tunnel running underneath the city centre. Both the station box and the tunnel were constructed using a top-down method and during the course of the excavation approximately 2 million m3 of earth has been removed.

UK Project Update: What a Goal! WJ Groundwater Scores Again at Tottenham Hotspur.

WJ Groundwater has been commissioned to dewater aspects of the iconic new stadium for renowned London football team, Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

This ongoing project is a great addition to our company portfolio that already includes completed dewatering projects for football clubs such as Reading, Derby County, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

The new scheme sees the existing stadium expanded to a new capacity of 61,000 fans, including the largest single tier in the UK (the home southern stand) capable of holding 17,000 people. Its new asymmetrical design is now focused towards the southern ‘home end’ giving the structure a unique look.  Amongst many other new features, the re-build also includes a fully retractable pitch (for concerts), prominent new entrances at the front and eastern ends, and a ‘sky walk’ so tourists can climb 40 m for views from the stadium.
