Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire

The Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse is situated just yards from the Connecticut River.

It features a new 10,000 square foot Englert Series 1100 forest green standing seam roof which replaced a worn, green asphalt shingle roof. The forest green was chosen because it is close to the college colors.

Jancewicz & Sons of Bellows Falls, Vermont, installed the new roof. When they opened up the building and were removing the old roof, they found they needed to upgrade the insulation and blew in cellulose with an R-38 value. The biggest challenge, reports the installer, was the proximity of the building to the river and the constant movement of boats and their crews on land in front of the building which created limited access to portions of the structure.

The boat house is less than a 10 minute walk from anywhere on campus. The building contains a large function room, office, kitchen and deck overlooking the river. The ground floor houses over 30 racing shells for the men's, women's and men's lightweight programs. A second boathouse nearby contains a fleet of singles and pairs, a boat repair shop and the weight lifting equipment. Wind and power boats rarely disturb the crews here, with "glass" conditions most days. This combination of elements provides some of the best rowing water in the country, underscored by the fact that National Team crews have trained here every summer since 1972.
