Christ Church’s Boat House is located at the apex of the Cherwell and Thames. It is home the college’s famous Boat Club, first established in 1817.

This project by Montgomery Architects saw the complete renovation of the gym, modernisation of services within the boat store and workshops, and a new punt store extension created. The terrace and gym enjoy stunning views across the rivers, a nice respite from the tough training regimes for the rowing teams.

Mechanical and electrical services were replaced, with new heating, domestic water, ventilation, above ground drainage, lighting, power, fire alarm and access control systems. The project was completed over two phases, to reduce disruption to the rowers.
