One of the crucial steps during a construction project that is in or near water or is in an area that is frequently at risk from flooding is the dewatering process. If you do not make the right choices when it comes to your dewatering options, you could end up wasting a huge amount of time and money. As you already have budgetary constraints to concern yourself with, risking going over budget just adds to your issues.
An inflatable cofferdam is the correct choice for the dewatering stage of a construction project. Here are a few ways in which a water-filled, inflatable cofferdam supplied by the team here at Dam-It-Dams is guaranteed to save you money.
How to Save Money With Dam-It-Dams Inflatable Cofferdams
Installation is Quicker and Cheaper
Using an inflatable cofferdam means that your installation process will be between four and five times quicker than using alternatives, such as sandbags. As you will no doubt be aware, the phrase ‘time is money’ is never more applicable when used in the context of construction projects.
De-installation is Just as Quick
The clean-up process following the completion of a construction project is just as swift, and much swifter than potentially removing and disposing of hundreds of sandbags. You just return the water used to inflate the cofferdam to the source, clean the cofferdam, roll it up, remove it and place it into storage.
Inflatable Cofferdams are Completely Reusable
One of the main benefits of water-filled cofferdams is that they are completely and easily reusable, time and time again. Compare this to sandbags which – while they have been in contact with water – become contaminated and can only be thrown away, and then in the correct legal manner. An inflatable cofferdam is a one-time expense that can be used over and over.
You Need Less Personnel When Using Inflatable Cofferdams
Imagine how many man hours it takes to lay sandbags in place, or to build a temporary dam out of concrete, steel or earth. It only takes a few people to install a cofferdam, as the installation process is a lot simpler, safer and much less back-breaking than other more labor intensive solutions.
