Freshford Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade

Client: Source Civil
Services: Temporary works design, supply and installation of ground support system

Part of a €3.6million scheme incorporating Freshford, Johnstown and Goresbridge, Response Group (parent of Source Civil) were appointed by Kilkenny Co. Co. as the main contractor to design, build and operate new wastewater infrastructure for the villages of Freshford, Johnstown and Goresbridge. The treatment plants will be designed to treat 1300, 800 and 600 PE respectively.

Working for Source Civil, Trench Control designed and installed a scheme of temporary works comprising sheet piles and hydraulic propping elements to facilitate the construction of a pumping station at the Freshford site. Groundwater control was a critical issue at the site because of the permeable gravels prevalent across the site and so installation accuracy of the sheet piles was crucial the success of the project.
