Shaft Dewatering

Of all the different types of construction projects WJ have worked on across our global operations, one of the most common are the construction of shafts. Shafts are constructed on a variety of different types of project – transport infrastructure, water treatment works, residential developments just to name a few, but because of their depth, dewatering is often a common requirement.

The dewatering requirements for a shaft can often be complex, due to the underlying geology and the variety of different construction techniques. A shallow dewatering system may be required for superficial deposits whereas deeper dewatering wells may be required to control water levels and pressures deeper bedrock. Fortunately complex dewatering projects are WJ’s forte!
