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.

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.
