“Large contractors like Equix are an intrinsic part of the Civil Engineering Industry and the discipline of dewatering. Hence it is important to take into account the needs of Large Contractors and ensure that the dewatering industry can service our needs and incorporate the difficulties we face on projects. The fundamentals of TDI will ensure that the required attention is paid to these areas. Having worked for many years in the dewatering industry, I am a firm believer that dewatering is an art as much as a science. We look forward to supporting TDI and its members” says Senior Manager of Equix, Joe Hockberger. 

TDI is very happy to have Equix as part of our institute. Main contractors play a very important role in the dewatering industry. Many contractors see dewatering as a “necessary evil” however from discussions with Senior Manager Joe Hockberger, it is evident that Equix appreciate the importance of dewatering and the opportunities good dewatering practices can bring to construction projects they work on. We look forward to working together with Equix and their team to identify areas of focus and improving best practices in the dewatering industry, from the point of a large contractor such as Equix. This will greatly help to ensure that TDI can support the dewatering industry to adapt and make changes where required to overcome identified areas of focus”, says executive member of the advisory council, Christoffel Botha.
