    • Al Futtaim Carillion LLC

      ‘We were extremely pleased with the deep well dewatering systems designed, installed and operated by WJ Groundwater for our La Mer Project . A key benefit was their HDPE pipework that kept the site dry from leaks. They worked efficiently to programme and most importantly safely. The La Mer car park basement and chiller room dewatering was a great success and look forward to working with them again.’

      WJ’s installation team was excellent. The dewatering and groundwater recharge system worked as per WJ model & design. The works, including the Groundwater Treatment Plant setup and demobilisation, were carried out according to the programme. We received very good technical support with prompt production of monitoring data & reports.  Of special note was WJ‘s expertise in contractor assistance to mitigate risks for our forward planning.
