In construction and geotechnical projects, groundwater is a key variable which can be poorly understood. Moreover, it is difficult to translate groundwater theory to workable solutions. Based on their expertise in the construction business, AGT provide pragmatic designs for dewatering systems together with specifications, drawings and costs. With this information, a contractor, engineering consultant or project developer can, with confidence, go to tender and choose the most suitable dewatering company. In their studies, different dewatering options can be calculated, including novel techniques such a reinjection behind cut-off walls or deep reinjection to reduce the impact on the groundwater system. The best solution is always proposed whilst taking into account cost, the risks of subsidence, pollution migration or excessive drawdowns.
Furthermore, with their daughter company IFTech, and associates at Carbon Zero Consulting, AGT design, build and manage all the regulatory requirements of large and complex ground source heating and cooling (GSHC) systems throughout the UK and Europe.

Uretek is the world's leading geopolymer soil remediation company. They are the original inventors of the ground injection system which uses expansive resins to control and manage the soils underneath the built environment.
They have pioneered advances in ground remediation for over 35 years and have provided subsidence, settlement, water control and void filling solutions on 200,000 sites around the world. The business operates in UK & Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Americas.
The Uretek solutions can be applied to virtually any situation where subsidence and settlement occurs. Road and rail slab-track stabilisation are common areas where the advantages of the injected resin solution are clear; stabilisation through geopolymer takes as little as hours where the alternative would involve excavation and takes days or weeks.
Their systems are also applied heavily in the industrial property sector where major facilities require absolute control over ground levels and bearing capacity. Furthermore, the injection technique is now often considered as an early stage design solution for new construction.
