Sykes’ dewatering expertise opens the door to residential development in Somerset
Before work could commence on the proposed construction of 110 new homes in Sedgemoor, it was essential that a lake on the designated land was drained to facilitate the next steps.
Although the lake itself was reasonably small in size, our customer was looking to permanently remove contained water from the excavation area as quickly as possible so that the soil was stable and more conducive to permitting the building work that was to follow.
Having surveyed the area to ensure they arrived at the correct solution, our regional expert recommended the hire of a single 8″ Super Wispaset 200 Ecotec to conduct the required task. This product was purposefully selected because of its incredible fuel economy and quiet operation, with the latter factor being a key consideration due to the presence of existing residential properties just a few yards away.
