Project Ely

The new Cambridge University Boathouse was completed in December 2016 and brings all five rowing clubs of the university together for the first time. It sits on the Great Ouse outside Ely.

The building has a distinctive zinc clad, folded plate roof with prefabricated CLT panels left exposed on the underside to form a dramatic ceiling within the boathouse itself.
