The Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club, Grimwith Resevior

This new, two storey Boathouse for the Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club is located on the shore of Grimwith Reservoir, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The project includes excavations in shale and rock, constructing reinforced concrete foundations and tanked retaining walls before erecting a steel frame, clad with traditional cavity wall construction using stone and a pitched insulated composite steel roof panel overclad with a Yorkshire stone slate roof.
A large glazed screen and paved balcony with glass ballustrading was also constructed, so members can still benefit from the glorious surroundings in which the clubhouse is set.

There is both ground source and solar heating, which coupled with underfloor heating makes this an economical property to keep warm in the harsh conditions that are found at Grimwith.

The facility is expected to be opened by HRH Princess Anne in 2010.
