The Urban Etive is remake of the classic Scottish river in an Urban Environment, with a twist.
Featuring close to 20m vertical height loss across the course with drops, slides and waterfalls, dominating this low flow, high head, channel arrangement. Designed for high skill level kayaking, and all ability canyoneering, this venue is a major regeneration project and visitor attraction. Improving on the great canyoneering run is difficult, but working with other top designers in their field, we have also managed to interlace and intricately embedded a world class caving venue, with wet and dry features throughout.
Utilising the latest technology in sculpted concrete, highly authentic rock structures can be formed enhancing both the aesthetics of the site but also the hands on feeling of the activities. EPD have masterminded this whole project and look forward to taking the site in Glasgow forward and also replicating this exciting project elsewhere.
