Rowing club plans redevelopment

January 03, 2020

RSK has conducted a pro bono geophysical survey for Runcorn Rowing Club, as part of our ongoing efforts to support local communities.

The Runcorn Rowing Club is close to RSK’s headquarters in Helsby, UK, and was founded in 1894 on land purchased from the Marquis of Cholmondeley. Rowing takes place on the River Weaver Navigation, the best stretch of rowing water in the North West. The Liverpool University Rowing Club and the River Weaver Canoe Club share the facilities.

Half of the rowing club members are juniors, and a large group are women’s masters. A dedicated set of rowers have expanded the club in the past five years, and there are plans to redevelop some of the land for a new boathouse. A major initial step is understanding the current ground conditions. RSK Director and club member Sue Sljivic recognised that RSK’s skills could be used and suggested RSK get involved as a community engagement project. In October 2019, we did just that, undertaking a PAS128 GPR buried utility survey that involved employing the ground penetrating radar and electromagnetic location and lifting geophysical techniques to map all buried utilities, foundations, voids and other site obstructions. The results were presented as a 2D plan of the subsurface.

Sue commented, “The survey has enabled the club to assess the site ground conditions fully so that we can progress plans to build a new clubhouse that will accommodate new boat storage, a training area and social space to support the water sports on the Weaver navigation. It is an exciting time for the club and the support provided by RSK has been very useful.”
