The King’s School water access upgrade

January 8, 2021

The King’s School wanted its students to have dedicated non-slip and safe access to the River Dee for their on-water rowing training. Several incidents had occurred on the existing facilities, owing to the nature and finish of the units. It was time to upgrade.

Working closely with the school’s Head of Estates and the King’s School Rowing Club, we created a stable rowing facility with wide access ramps. Our low freeboard, high residual buoyancy pontoons, decked with GRP mini mesh, will ensure easy, non-slip water access and egress for the students, all year round.

The King’s School now has a first-class rowing facility. It can confidently promote its new facility, attracting top performing rowers to the school.
