Located in Rotherhithe's Greenland Dock, Surrey Docks
Watersports Centre was an existing two storey boathouse designed
and built by the GLC in the 1980s and since then, has trained
thousands of people in sailing, canoeing and other watersports.
When the London Borough of Southwark provided £2.3 million funding
to bring the centre up to current standards and increase its
appeal, Buxton Building Contractors engaged WGI to support its
successful OJEU bid, on the basis of the firm's sports
The resulting design was for a modern, attractive and spacious
environment totalling 1,400m2 - involving refurbishment of both
levels of the building. A new gym, activity studios, wet and dry
changing facilities and club lounge were added, as well as
specialist equipment and facilities to provide full access to users
with disabilities and special needs.
Surrey Docks Watersports Centre is now a flagship facility in the
Borough which has attracted a four-fold increase in membership.
