Dewatering is the removal of groundwater to allow work to be carried out in dry conditions by use of different types of dewatering process and remediation is the cleaning of the water.

Permanent Dewatering Installations

Here at Alba Dewatering we have carried out permanent bespoke dewatering installations in various location from stately homes to underground multi storey carparks and hospitals.

Why Dewatering?

Dewatering can be cost saving to a job site if installed correctly, as it has the potential to significantly reduce standing time for both the work force and machinery.

Unlike general sump pumping, dewatering can strengthen the ground and reduce movement and migration of fines causing subsidence.

What our clients say

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.

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

“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

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.
