Dorney Lake is British Canoeings main on-water training venue and was a competition venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games. In contrast to the excellent water conditions, the venue lacked suitable indoor support accommodation - Olympic medallists were dependent on an old, leaky shipping container for changing and meeting space.

The new state-of-the-art facility builds on the success of London 2012 and provides paddlers with an improved daily training environment to support preparation for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020 and beyond. It was constructed using modular, off-site construction techniques.

The Project overcame challenges posed by the relatively remote location within a flood plain area that also suffered from low water and gas pressures. On behalf of British Canoeing, uk sport and Sport England, QMP Project Managed the successful delivery of this unique project, including Cost Management and Procurement advice.
