WJ staff and clients have had two papers accepted at the XVI European Conference for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering being held in Edinburgh on 13 – 17 September at ICC. The first paper was to be presented by WJ Groundwater’s chairman, Toby Roberts and the second by Emilio Linde from OTB Engineering.
The two papers are:
Sub-surface Dewatering for an Inclined SCL Tunnel by Toby Roberts and Reg Smith (WJ) plus Alfred Stark and Walter Zeiszig (BeMo) and Multi-Aquifer Pressure Relief in East London by Toby Roberts and Gary Holmes (WJ) with Emilio Linde (OTB) and Concepcion Vincente (Dragados Sisk Joint Venture).
The conference and chance to present our papers are excellent opportunity to showcase some of WJ’s very successful recent work on the high-profile Crossrail project. WJ was also mentioned in dispatches and in other papers by Ursula Lawrence of Capita Symonds. She talked about the Variation in Permeability and Dewatering Performance for Part of the Crossrail Route in East London, and Matt Bellhouse who spoke about The Engineering Geology of the Lee Tunnel.
The conference always provides great opportunities to network with industry contractors and to raise awareness of WJ Groundwater’s standing in the industry. Congratulations to Toby, Reg, Gary and their co-authors for having their papers selected for the event.
