Putney Rowing Club Boat Ramp Installation

  • Sector:Water & Utilities
  • Client:Putney Rowing Club
  • Location:River Thames, London
  • Value:£260k

Barhale Installed a boat ramp for Putney Rowing club who had previously had to access the River Thames 200m upstream from the clubhouse.
Although accustomed to working with water, the tidal constraints of the river made this project challenging

The River Thames is tidal - water levels at Putney rise and fall twice a day approx. 4.5m so riverbed works were scheduled for the 4 to 5 hours of low tide.
The ramp was divided into manageable sub sections which could be safely excavated and concrete poured within 2 hours, allowing a further 2 hours setting time.
