Preston Grids - AMCO

Clough Street, one of two trash screens on this project, was unique in its cantilevered design. It was supported from one bank only as the other bank was formed from gabions.

Clough Street Trash Screen

Clough street was an interedsting challenge. The water here enters a siphon and appears to go vertically down. Safety in construction was a challenge for our client AMCO. Additionally, the embankment was constructed from Gabions meaning no foundations could be placed there - so we worked with their designers, in this case JBA Consulting, to cantilver the steel platform from the road side.
