DOWNING COLLEGE

CAMBRIDGE

Boom completed a unique refurbishment of this existing boat house for Downing College in Cambridge. The boat house was established in 1863 and has a vast history of not just providing a community rowing club but producing rowers that have gone on to represent Great Britain. 

As part of the clubs forward thinking they decided to invest in a state of the art indoor rowing pool which would only be the second to be installed in the UK at the time. This is where Boom got involved in the project and were responsible for installing a new structural floor capable of taking the weight of the new pool which was to be located on the first floor. Once the structural works were complete the project was a refurbishment of the student accommodation, kitchen, bathrooms, changing rooms and communal areas.
