The brief by upmarket boutique gym operator Upfitness which have branches in 14 Locations, 9 Countries, 4 Continents was to convert the 4,000 sqft space into a fully function gym, leisure space. Challenges were the budget and insufficient existing drainage, water pressure and H/W provision.
Select Interiors designers and fit out specialist for gyms and leisure overcame the numerous challenges to redesign, refurbish and convert the space over a 9-week programme. We created large shower and changing rooms Male and Female, store, office, reception area, dance / yoga studio and open plan gym.
We explored the existing drainage and installed extensive new larger diameter drainage, excavating part of the Car Park and diamond sawing the concrete slab to achieve levels for new drainage for showers and disabled walk-in shower facility. We designed and installed a complete H.W. and addressed low bar pressures by installing an industrial expansion vessel and pump system to service the showers and HW requirements. Further works included extensive demolition, partitions, ceramic tiling, bespoke and site joinery, plastering, mechanical, ventilation, electrical, plumbing, decorative polished concrete flooring, safety flooring, signage and graphics
