Groundwater Control

Shallow groundwater can be a significant constraint to construction of below-ground works and can affect the long term performance of structures such as basements or tunnels.

Effective planning of the control of groundwater can avoid instability in excavations and delays and cost increases during construction. Effective groundwater control can also avoid operational or maintenance problems during the lifetime of a structure.

BWB Geotechnical engineers understand the potential risks and can provide advice on methods to control groundwater in temporary and permanent works.
