About project

As part of this project TRUSTPROJECT was asked to construct a rowing school in the city of Tver. Rowing has been popular in Tver for decades. The interest for rowing first sparked in late 50s early 60s of the last century. Initially rowing was taught as part of various elective classes at a number of educational and sports institutions. As years passed the importance and the emphasis on this particular type of sports increased significantly leading to the establishment of regular educational programs that prepared professional sportsmen in academic rowing and kayaking. The sports center constructed by TRUSTPROJECT is an investment on the part of the local government into the future of the young generation. Olympic sports champions shall get their training here in Tver and it was the job of TRUST PROJECT to make sure that they trained in a comfortable environment.

Into the history

Before any construction activity could begin, mandatory archaeological excavations and observations had to be carried out. Despite the fact that the depth of the pit was 3 meters the archeologists made a decision to dig deeper and reached the level of 6 meters. The cultural layer turned out to be located much deeper that the disign documents specified.

Bank fortification and environmental issues

Another complexity of the project was the fact that the bank of the river was located too high above the level of the Volga river. The team decided to fortify the riverbank to reduce possible risks in the future. In order to mitigate any influence that the construction process had on the river and its ecosystem, the team added a selection of young fish into the water. The team of TRUST PROJECT is firm in their belief that no matter how complicated and important the project is, it is our social responsibility to ensure that no harm is done to the environment.

Project results

Although the project schedule had to be updated to accommodate for the archeological dig, most of the important and difficult stages of the construction project have been completed. The construction is under way and the new sports center in Tver will soon open its doors to young athletes, the future Olympic champions.
