Removing excess groundwater from your project and keeping it that way is essential for your site prep and schedule. GSI have dewatered many projects across the UK including HS2. We'll make sure you'll be working on your site as quickly as possible.
Often before excavation for a project can go below groundwater level, this surface water or has to be removed to ensure good ground stability. This is also known as dewatering. It's a temporary solution that pumps away excess water creating drier soil conditions.
An efficient dewatering plan keeps your project on time, reducing hold-ups that can be caused by heavy rain and sudden storms. A very real problem across the UK due to increasing rainfall over the last few years.
Not only does the dewatering process make for better foundations there are other benefits too.
Keeping your employees and equipment safe and secure on site.
Standing water can become a health hazard, although rare it's not worth the risk. Dirty water is a breeding ground for germs that can cause waterborne diseases such as gastroenteritis or even cholera. At the very least the chance of your workers slipping, tripping and falling is reduced.
