- Dewatering for Building Construction
University of Pennsylvania
Altoona, PA (2002)
Page 1 of 3
This building was in need of repair. The University also wanted
to expand the existing structure which called for construction
over the top of the campus lake.
Water quality was a major concern for the University. The noise of
driving sheet piling made that method of coffer-daming undesirable.
Classes had to be held during the construction period.
A 6' high AquaDam® was started far up the bank. Ropes were placed
around the unit to hold it back as it unrolled across the lake.
Pumping time was started at 2:02 pm, as you can see in the right
side of this picture.
