The QEZ-01 Project

This project involved dewatering for the manholes and trenches in preparation for the installation of utilities such as storm water, potable, sewerage, electrical and communication lines. Elsewhere, large pipework and pumping equipment was also installed.  The project was a joint venture between clients Sacyr and UCC.

Viva Bahriya 08

Viva Bahriya is a beachfront development. 08 is a hotel / condominium in Doha. WJ Groundwater was commissioned for sub contract work involving the dewatering for an excavation for a lift pit. Previously, our teams have successfully dewatered other residential towers at The Pearl including Viva Bahriya 06 and 07 for our client CRC.
