WJ Groundwater is currently undertaking a large-scale sewage-overpumping project to facilitate the upgrading of existing substructures in Downtown Dubai. The excavations are taking place close to the famous Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
WJ Groundwater is happy to announce that it is currently operating a sewage over pumping system in down town Dubai close to Burj Khalifa. The project is an important part of a series of upgrades for Emaar Properties EJS. WJ Groundwater provided Dutco Balfour Beatty LLC with two brand new diesel sewage pumps. Combined they have a pumping capacity of 600 l/s.
Several senior members of WJ Groundwater’s staff complement took part in an ‘effective leadership training course’. The sessions took place at the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) in Dubai and proved to be a rewarding, worthwhile and fun experience.

Each year the conference revolves around a different theme. This year it is ‘Value Engineering in Geotechnical Practice – Application and Case Histories’.
