As part of it’s new, mixed-use riverside development at Distillery Wharf, Fulham Reach, St George West London commissioned a 25m long rowing pontoon to be built as the first phase of a new water sports facility that will include a community riverside sports facility and luxury apartments located on the North side of the river Thames.
Beckett Rankine prepared the design of the pontoon and access structures and managed the consent applications to the Port of London Authority, the Environment Agency and the Marine Management Organisation. Contractor for the works was Intermarine.
The 25 metre long, low-freeboard pontoon has been built to a bespoke design which enables 17m long rowing eights to be carried ashore. The 20m long canting brow with stainless steel handrailing has all its structure below deck both to minimise visual impact and to avoid obstructions to the boats being carried.
