Kingcombe Stonbury were engaged to fabricate and install a weed rack as part of the Environment Agency WLMP programme at Bodenham, near Salisbury. The weed rack was fabricated to EA specifications in our workshop at Crewkerne.
The fabrication included full assembly in our yard to check for accuracy. The structure was then sent away to be galvanised to the required standard and delivered to site in kit form, before installation directly into the river.
The installation presented challenges in terms of access and the construction of suitable foundation slabs. This involved the deployment of specialist coffer dams and the temporary diversion of the carrier stream.
