In 2017, we took on the project for a new-build, remote controlled weir for the Schieland and Krimpenerwaard Water Board (SKWB), serving as the main contractor. This project concerned the design and construction of a weir called “Stuw de 3e tocht” at Bleiswijk’s Kooilaan.
The objective of this project was to build a fully automatic, remote-controlled weir that could monitor and adjust water levels at all times.
For this purpose, SKWB drew up the Water Act Plan, after which we prepared the design in consultation with SKWB, local residents and other stakeholders, making sure to provide the desired functionality whilst visually integrating the weir into the existing infrastructure.
Over the past year, Van Boekel Bouw en Infra has started installing the sheet piling and preparing the site for construction. We subsequently installed the precast concrete catch basin, the weir gate, and the controls
