The program called for a full remodel of the existing boathouse with new ventilation, dehumidification, and training space with a high-performance 16 seat rowing tank that mimics the river current and allows the team access to a state-of-the-art training facility year-round.
Located alongside the Connecticut River, large operable windows and doors provide natural ventilation and expansive views to create a direct visual connection to the water.
The training facility was designed to support the entire Dartmouth Rowing team - with space for every rower to focus and improve their skills.

The difference between the best and very good
The opportunity to improve each rower’s technique on moving water will be one of the major benefits of training with the tanks.
Between the renovated Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse, this new addition with the moving-water tanks, and the beautiful river that we row on - and having all of this right on campus - we now have one of the finest collegiate rowing facilities in the U.S., if not the finest.
