FLI Carlow Supply Precast Solution for Grassholme Reservoir Spillway Works

Posted: 12/11/2020

Grassholme Spillway

The FLI Carlow Team have successfully completed a contract for the design and manufacture of a bespoke precast solution to raise the wall height on three 100 year old stone wall spillway structures at Grassholme Reservoir. FLI Carlow also undertook the design and manufacture of precast units to facilitate the reduction in height on an existing weir on the project.

This project involved many challenges including:

  • The development of a precast system capable of being retrofitted to an existing stone wall¬†¬†
  • The provision of an architectural pattern finish to match the existing wall
  • The manufacture of over 500 units for the project, working to a very tight production program

Manufacturing of the final units for the project was completed in late October. Following the completion of our contract works our client provided the below testimonial:

"I just wanted to drop a quick note to say how impressed I have been over the last few months especially the way the final deliveries have come through. You have all worked really hard to assist at all points of the process from the very early stages, through design and finally delivery. The finished quality of the units are first class and has exceeded my expectations. I look forward to working with you all again on future projects. Please pass my thanks onto the people who also supported yourselves"
