WJ Groundwater has been hard at work on a dewatering project for client, the McLaren Group at Bromley, Kent’s new state of the art shopping centre. Known as Bromley South Central and due for completion in late 2017, the project is being overseen and managed by Dr Mark Pickett.
One of the biggest projects of 2016 at WJ Groundwater has been on the Ispwich Tidal Barrier Project. We worked closely on the Water and Environment Management (WEM) project for our client Volker Stevin Ltd (VSL) to enable construction of the tidal gate structure at the River Orwell.
