Geared Construction were engaged to carry out a complete refurbishment of the existing Fitness Centre Reception area, which included the complete demolition of the existing reception.
New works included, structural steel, new aluminium glazed partitions and doors, new joinery, feature carpentry bulkheads and fins, new flooring, painting and Electrical services upgrades.
The main challenge with this project was maintaining public access to the Gym, which remained in operation throughout the entire construction period. With the Gym opening at 5am and closing at 9pm, it meant that any noisy, dusty or disruptive works had to be carried out outside of these hours. A temporary reception desk and power was provided, as well as a temporary entrance and exit. There were also other stakeholders in the surrounding facilities within the building that had to be considered, so daily communication and careful planning was a priority.
The project was completed in line with the construction programme, and with minimal disruptions to the day to day running of the Gym.
Andrew Smith, Venues West Capital Works Coordinator provided the following testimonial on completion of the works:
“The new reception is a hit. I was impressed with the service provided by Declan, Katie and Brendon during the delivery stage. The product you offered was exceptional and would be happy for you to use me, and this project, as a reference for future works you may tender on.”
