Based in Toronto, the WJ Groundwater Canada Team put 100% of their resources and efforts since 2016 executing the largest dewatering project in the country. The Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (ECLRT) project consists of 19.7 km of light rail transit running along Eglinton Avenue from Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy in the east. The project has been designed and constructed by Crosslinx Transit Solutions Contractors (Crosslinx) and WJs focus has been dewatering the tunnels and stations of the underground (most difficult) part of the project..
In late 2019 we started to reach out to GCs and Developers in Ontario to get on their tender lists for projects that require dewatering. Our intention has been to meet and get to know all the GCs Project Managers, Estimators and Executives in Canada that could potentially use our services – WJ prefers taking a more personal approach to client development and we offer our dewatering engineering expertise on a probono basis as a part of this process.
With our unique dewatering methods, procedures and equipment designed for use in combination with tunnelling and our experience of working within constricted urban construction sites we are working with Developers and their Contractors to provide solutions to the complex dewatering needs of the High Rise space. The reception has been so successful we have increased our business by 100% over 2019 mostly due to new High Rise projects.
With a team of around 40 people of Managers, Engineers, Designers, Electricians, Drillers and Dewatering Operatives and a toolkit of specialist equipment procured locally and from within the WJ Group we have the resources capable to undertake the largest station excavations in difficult ground conditions comprising closely layered silts, sands and clays.
We encourage our GC and Engineering clients and partners to leverage our engineering expertise in groundwater as early as possible in any project that requires dewatering – we can even help you win a bid on a project that is challenging from a dewatering perspective – if you call us early in the process.
