WJ Groundwater is pleased to announce its latest dewatering project in Blackpool – once the home of the tallest roller-coaster and one of the most recognizable buildings in the UK, the Blackpool Tower.
This project is based at Blackpool South and has been devised in order to improve the quality of the local bathing water and for flood protection. The capacity of the local sewer network is to be increased, and this includes updating one of the town’s pumping stations – Lennox Gate. and construction of a new storage tank at Fishers Field.
WJ Groundwater has been hard at work on a dewatering project for client, the McLaren Group at Bromley, Kent’s new state of the art shopping centre. Known as Bromley South Central and due for completion in late 2017, the project is being overseen and managed by Dr Mark Pickett.
WJ Groundwater has recently been awarded a £1 million plus contract for Ferrovial Agroman Laing O’Rourke JV (FLO) for groundwater quality monitoring on its multi-billion pound project Thames Tideway Central. Although, WJ Groundwater has been undertaking water sampling and testing for many years this is the first contract it’s won where these services are to be central to the commission.read more
