New-build weir ‘de 3e tocht’ in Bleiswijk

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

The biggest challenge of this project consisted of working in a residential area, with the design having a major impact on the surrounding area. We actively involved local residents and other stakeholders in the design process to optimise the design and protect the interests of everyone involved.

Van Boekel Bouw & Infra changed its course a few years ago, shifting our focus to multidisciplinary concrete projects in the civil and non-residential construction sectors. We started to emphasise Best Value Procurement (BVP) projects, which enabled us to escape the low-cost market. This change of course has netted Van Boekel Bouw & Infra new clients, whilst enabling us to specialise in new types of projects and contracts, such as UAV-gc, and expanding our work area in the Netherlands and abroad.  Our organisation and employees worked hard to make this transition into a success, focusing on acquiring new clients and completing new projects.
