What our clients say

Our go-to dewatering specialist.
D.H. , Senior QS.
My colleagues and I at A Hak echo the praise and appreciation at the sterling work …the crew have done for us on the project. They faced a difficult task in the narrowest of working areas and they performed admirably.

We were also extremely impressed at the way they mucked in generally, earning praise and respect from all.

Many thanks from all the team, and we will not hesitate to use Alba Dewatering again on future projects.

Rob B., K Home International
… we were very happy with your service.

From appointment to you being on site the time frame was very quick (a few days)…On site works were also hassle free.

We would be happy to use your services again

Pat M., Lavin Group

Great workmanship as always. Works through all the elements!

Carwyn H., Binnies

Alba advised and installed complex dewatering system on our site; the Alba Ops on the ground were very knowledgeable and installation went as planned.

On a few occasions I had to call the Alba Foreman for advice out of hours; each time the phone was answered and I was given instructions over the phone to rectify the problem.

Andres S.
Excellent company – would be delighted to use their services again if and when I have a requirement.
Dominic N., JD Excavations

“I’m emailing about the dewatering we have set up on site …. it’s all working which is fantastic … and a big thankyou to you and your team on that front.”

S.E, J N Bentley

I spent a year in Barrow as Construction Manager for UU on this project with Farrans. The tidal range dictated the hours we worked and has to be one of the top 5 projects I have been involved in. The ground conditions were a challenge to say the least. When anyone says we have have bad ground, I always pull up videos from Barrow. Alba with Farrans and JD excavations worked with collaboration as a key focus to achieve the end goal. Without Alba the project would simply not have been completed on time and to budget.

Daniel T.
We used the guys at Alba a few years ago on a major project for some significant over pumping and control and the service was flawless – would recommend every time….
John H.

Couldn’t fault your company one bit, dealt with Chris from start to finish and it was a pleasure dealing with him, organised everything on site and your team carried out first class job for us.

We will definitely be using you again.

Pete B, Caecillian Ltd

Brilliant service, very responsive and quick to attend to install, deal with any issues and demobilise.
