College boat yards 

Savvy Maintenance has been working with numerous Oxford Colleges over the last few months to restore their iconic boatyard buildings for future generations of rowers. Each boatyard has been refurbished with all render, wood, and metalwork exactingly repaired, primed, and repainted to high standards set by the University on all of their buildings. This includes the historical College arms located on the front of each building as seen in the photos below. The boatyards sit in an idyllic setting next to the Thames as it runs past the beautiful Christchurch Meadow. These are the bases for the rowers who will go on to represent the University in the famous Boat Race further up the river in London each spring.
