King’s School Rowing Club


Project Summary

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.

Client King’s School Rowing Club
Date Installed September 2020
Where River Dee, Chester, Cheshire

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 rowing 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.

“The new landing stage at the club has transformed the rowing site, offering an exceptional boating facility for our students. Jon and his team were fantastic throughout the project, offering expert advice and installation. The finish product has exceeded our expectations."
— David Blackham, Director of Rowing at The King’s School
