Double Stage Well Point Dewatering

Khansaheb Sykes was approached to provide a dewatering solution to enable construction of 3 large villa’s and 1 guard room over an area of approximately 15,000m2 located in Zabeel, Dubai.

The project was started during Mid-November’ 2013, when our first stage of wellpoints were successfully installed and the required drawdown was achieved, to permit installation of our second stage of wellpoints. Using our two stage system enabled us to ensure that the final working level remained fully dry permitting construction to proceed.

The construction is now underway and proceeding without any problems of groundwater.

Multi-Stage Well Point Dewatering is needed when the required drawdown is more than 3.5 to 4 meters with each stage installed with its own pumping system using our Sykes WP150/60 wellpoint dewatering pumpset.

Khansaheb Sykes Supports Construction from last 4 years!

When it comes to construction, clients and contractors encounter several obstacles and delays. During such times, it is necessary to keep the constructed area stable and building unaffected so as to avoid any further delays and damages.

Khansaheb Sykes has been supporting the semi-constructed twin buildings in the emirate of Sharjah since 2009. Eighteen dewatering pumps have been functioning 24/7, 365 days continuously to support the buildings from any damages since the start of the project. Due to the downfall in the economy, the construction was halted by the contractors. It was essential that the dewatering system be kept running to avoid damage to the buildings. In spite of the construction site being very near to the sea shore, Khansaheb Sykes Dewatering Pumps have been very successful and reliable since the time the foundations were being laid, and have kept the site stable and construction intact.

 

 

With the economy boosting back, and showing a positive growth sign, it is expected that the construction will soon be completed- which is expected to be one of the large projects in the emirate of Sharjah.

Construction in Middle East is prone to experiencing groundwater obstacles. With the pressure of groundwater being too high from underneath, it becomes almost impossible to lay a foundation of the building without a qualified and experienced dewatering contractor.

With continuous 24/7 & 365 days support, Khansaheb Sykes is proud to be supporting construction in the gulf for over 50 years. You may feel free to ask us any advice or information on dewatering and pump hire, our experts are always there to help you.

Heavy Rainfall and Bad Weather to Continue in UAE…!

The weather bureau of UAE has forecasted more heavy rains in the upcoming days, and have asked the vehicle drivers and road users to remain careful on the roads with the prevailing weather conditions in the Emirates. Heavy Rains have drowned many parts of Dubai & Sharjah and they are expected to continue.

Khansaheb Sykes is proud to be a part of helping in continuous removal of rainwater by providing emergency pumping services at the required areas. With our pumps operating in most part of the UAE for 24hours a day, we are ensuring that the water clogged in many areas is diminished as soon as possible.

Khansaheb Sykes has strategically placed its pumps in flood prone areas to pump out overflowing rainwater from causing obstruction to vehicle drivers/road users and reducing water level. We hope to remove the standing water from the roads and other infrastructure facilities at the earliest to bring back normalcy and contribute to a safer transport for one and all.

We hope and pray that everyone remains safe, and we request you to keep safety while travelling during the bad weathers.

A Building is only as Good as its Foundation!

The foundation of any building structure carries a huge significance. There are many factors which have to be taken into consideration when any building foundation is laid, one of the most important procedures is the control of groundwater efficiently prior to laying the foundation- Or commonly called as Dewatering.

When Khansaheb Sykes is given a proposed excavation to dewater, we at first send our experts to understand and analyze the site with a free site survey. It is very necessary the site is examined for the soil type and the level of groundwater before starting any dewatering activity on it. We make sure that every site we work on is examined to avoid any problems during the construction which may result into delays and cost overruns.

 A qualified Dewatering Contractor will ensure that it has the necessary experience, resources and technologies to overcome any challenge that may arise during the course of the project. They will also ensure that your project’s timeline and budget is not exceeded. The strict compliance of all safety standards and unmatched delivery of professionalism makes Khansaheb Sykes stand out among the other sub-contractors.

The Little Innovations at Khansaheb Sykes

Sykes pumps are renowned for its continuous development to its pump range to offer the best for its clients. As we see a lot of development in the Middle East, we strive to improve our fleet to keep our clients satisfied.

Working with our clients over the years, we understand that they are facing issues with the limited space in construction areas. It was obvious, not all places are spacious enough to accommodate drilling rigs, cranes, bull dozers, dewatering pumps and other heavy equipment.

Considering the problem was increasing day by day, with clients experiencing time delays due to limited space for all heavy equipment, Khansaheb Sykes came out with an innovative idea to save 50% of the space occupied by their pumps!!!

 With a built in frame around the pump, which can stack another pump on top, the new design saves plenty of space, which otherwise would have been wasted if the pump was lying beside. With this addition of the new designed pumps, Khansaheb Sykes is able to provide three different designs of pumps- Wheel Pumps, Skid Frame Pumps and Stackable Pumps. All these designs are available in all our wellpoint dewatering pumps. The redesigned pumps have been of a great success, where we are already receiving thankful messages from clients who are delighted to see a new innovation in pumps.

Developing ourselves in the present for the changes and developments in the future, has always been a success mantra for Khansaheb Sykes Team. Feel free to contact us for any queries or enquiries on our wheel pumps, skid frame pumps or stackable pumps, our team will be happy to help you.

Wellpoint Dewatering – Done at its best!

Khansaheb Sykes was recently approached by one of the leading contractors in Dubai, to control groundwater and perform dewatering. The project involved the construction of 4 large villa’s and 1 guard room which is spread around a huge area in the heart of Dubai.

After a detailed inspection of the soil quality and level of groundwater by our team, the method of Wellpoint dewatering was chosen as the best option for the job. It involved a series of individual WellPoint’s to be installed along the site to be dewatered and each of them connected via a header pipe to a main high capacity vacuum pump.

  

A high pressure water jetting pump was used for the installation of well points which were inserted in the soil by drilling and high pressure water. Wellpoint dewatering is an age old method of dewatering which is very economical, flexible and stable. Our site investigations, knowledge of subsoil conditions enable us to recommend you the best method suitable for any project.

At Khansaheb Sykes we ensure that the project is supported without any problems of groundwater by operating the pumps on a 24/7 basis and allocating a dedicated site operator for continuous hassle free operation.

Why Dewatering?

Dewatering is a necessary process when it comes to many construction projects, particularly when the construction is for underground projects. Underground water is a common discovery when excavating for a construction foundation, and acts as an obstacle which leads to delay in construction, increasing project costs and low resistance of constructed structure to calamities like floods, earthquakes etc.

Heavy rains, floods and coastline constructions are all sources to the increase in the level of groundwater. Whatever maybe the source of water in excavation or pits, the underline remains the same- No work can be done on that land until and unless water is removed/dried.

Khansaheb Sykes has been established here in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) since 1976 as a leading dewatering sub-contractor providing first-rate solutions for all constructions sites which require dewatering. The process of dewatering becomes a very vital part of construction projects in the Middle East as the land here is very dry.


Dewatering pumps are the core for all dewatering needs. Khansaheb Sykes uses different kind of pumps for different projects depending upon the soil and project type. The benefit of hiring a dewatering specialist such as Khansaheb Sykes is the availability of variety of solutions and complete knowledge of local soil conditions to assure the job is done correctly.

We make certain that our engineers are dedicated to every job undertaken and understand the soil dynamics & hydraulic composition of soil and plan out the best dewatering method required for the site.
