Breaking Ground: Richard Fielden on Groundwater & Dewatering

Episode 18,  Oct 07, 2021, 10:08 AM

In this episode of Breaking Ground, Steve Hadley (Chair of the Federation of Piling Specialists and Managing Director of Central Piling) is joined by Richard Fielden (Managing Director of WJ Groundwater and Chair of the British Drilling Association) to talk about the world of ground water and dewatering. 

Richard started his career in the piling industry, working on a big basement project in Central London. He realised here that big holes in the ground interested him, and this lead him to take an interest in groundwater and dewatering.

Steve and Richard have known each other for a long time and this is a really interesting conversation between two experts in their field. The world of piling and the world of ground water have a huge number of crossovers, and they cover a lot of ground from looking at skills and the market to developing kit.
