Geared Construction were engaged to refurbish the reception area, swim school, offices and staff amenities at Leisure World Thornlie.
The project was completed in two stages to minimise disruption to the public. The first stage was completed within 2 weeks and involved the demolition of the existing reception areas and the subsequent fit out of the new foyer and reception areas. Once this work was completed staff were relocated to the new reception area.
The second stage was the demolition and refurbishment of the administration offices, staff toilets and kitchen areas. All works were completed 5 weeks ahead of schedule, halving the contract programme schedule and to a very high standard. Photos of the completed areas are shown below:
All works were completed in an operating leisure centre / crèche. Safety was maintained through the management of deliveries and noisy works completed outside of opening hours with temporary hoardings being used for segregation from the public and control of dust. The key to the success of this project was the constant communication between Geared Construction and the leisure centre’s management.
Mark Sinfield, Facilty Manager for Leisure World, Thornlie provided the following testimonial:
“Geared were great to work with straight from the start. The organisation and communication was exceptional and any changes we were required to make were welcomed with professionalism and with a prompt response. Follow up after construction completion has been fantastic. I would recommend Geared Constructions to anyone and would use them again.”
