WJ Groundwater‘s chairman Dr Toby Roberts has been invited to speak at this year’s Arabian Tunnelling Conference and Exhibition 2015 (ATC).
The event is to take place at The Grand Hyatt, Dubai, UAE on 23-25 November and the ‘theme’ this year is ‘Innovative Underground Infrastructure – Challenges and Opportunities’.
WJ Groundwater has recently completed work on a tunnelling project to install a ‘Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO)’ to counteract ‘Unsatisfactory Intermittent Discharge of Storm Water (UIDs)’. Neil Coulter (Contracts Manager) project managed the installation of our dewatering technologies for a number of the deep structures at United Utilities at Eccles, Manchester. Our involvement in the installation began in March and concluded at the end of September.
WJ Groundwater has commenced dewatering works on a new underpass that will run beneath the M74 Raith Interchange near Glasgow.
The project is part of a massive £1 billion upgrade of the motorway network to the east and south east of Glasgow and is due to end in about 12 months time.
Join us at the Digital Data in Geotechnics and Construction seminar at the National Space Centre in Leicester on 8 October organised by the British Drilling Association (BDA).read more
