Toby Roberts Gives Not One But Two Fantastic Talks

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.

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.
