St Peters School Boathouse, York
Construction of new school boathouse
- Client: St Peters School, York
We were delighted to be awarded the contract to construct the new boathouse that the school so desperately needed. The works involved constructing the new structure whilst maintaining access to the existing boathouse for the students. We then had to demolish the existing Boathouse whilst partially handing over the building so they had uninterrupted rowing while we constructed the new launch ramp in the footprint of the old building which we demolished. The structure is built on piled foundations, with the ground floor raised up to allow floodwater to low underneath preventing damage to the boats when they were stored. It was a pleasure to work with the school to deliver this fantastic building.
