Cambridge University Boat Club, Ely

Smith and Wallwork provided civil and structural engineering for Cambridge University’s new boathouse in Ely. Built on greenfield floodplain the project has required Smith and Wallwork’s expertise in flood water management and an iconic design saw our structural thinking tested to create the beautiful folded plate roof, reminiscent of Felix Candela’s engineering masterpieces. The project was officially opened in December 2016.
