Daejeon river sports complex is a two story sports club and boat rental operation supported by a floating platform on the Gapcheon river in Daejeon, Korea. The floating building platform was designed in Bellingham’s Australian division and manufactured by Bellingham partner CKIPM Marine of Seoul, Korea.

As the river can go completely dry in some seasons, the engineers designed a steel-beam landing platform with rubber pads positioned on the river bottom under the platform. Whenever the river runs dry, the facility rests on the structure until the water rises.
