Freshford Wastewater Treatment Works
DFCE were commissioned to act as civil and structural designers to the Design Build Contractor for this major sheet piled underground pump chamber in Freshford, County Kilkenny.
The tank was aqueous retaining and the design was value engineered by DFCE. Constructability was also a key element of the design, with DFCE liaising extensively with the partner and temporary works designer.
The works are being carried out by them on behalf of Kilkenny County Council.
DFCE assisted the client to achieve cost efficient, quality and quick solutions with the project now approaching completion.
“Fallon consulting engineers were provided with outline layout and the stormwater storage requirements of the pumping station. The design works required that the pumping station be constructed within an extremely confined site surrounded on all sides by rivers and the R693 road to Kilkenny. From this brief Fallon consultant’s developed the pumping station general arrangement drawings into the final design. We are delighted with the final economical and practical design put forward by Fallon consult’s which fitted perfectly within the confines of the site.” – Source Civil Limited
