Aleron Contractors were awarded the contract to fit-out a new state-of-the-art gym and hot yoga training studio in Milton Keynes.
Acting as a principal contractor for the project, Aleron provided full construction of the scheme with a tight yet effective programme to achieve the client’s requirements and specific "Fitness Space" corporate identity standards.
The gym was located in a ground floor commercial unit in a block of residential flats in the centre of Milton Keynes. With residents’ living areas immediately above the training space, it was essential that appropriate acoustic and fire barriers were installed to minimise disruption to surrounding neighbours.
Aleron initially commissioned an acoustic and fire survey to identify the requirements for sound barriers and passive fire protection in prder to achieve and exceed legal standards for sound attenuation and fire protection. This critical element of the project, although ommitted from the original customer brief and architect's spec, was identified by Aleron at the early stage of the project. Aleron's quick response to this issue enabled a cost-efficient solution to be delivered and incorporated into the originally agreed scope of works and time-frame.
- Complete Turn-Key project – from strip-out to fit-out – including construction of specialist sound reducing ceilings and partitioning, passive fire protection, M&E, complete joinery and wet-rooms fit-out, etc
- Extensive set of design considerations – public safety, training functionality, energy efficiency, design and corporate branding – all completed to achieve a safe, functional and low operation cost training space
- Design and Build with complex M&E, including specialist lighting, radiant infrared heating for hot yoga studio, wireless and structured wire data networking, small power, fire alarm, emergency lighting, ventilation, Air Conditioning, audio and visual installations
- Quality-targeted project management ensured the work was carried out as quickly as possible, to the highest standards required by the Client and The Fitness Space franchise
This was a challenging project that required understanding of the end-product functionality requirements and franchisor’s corporate guidelines. Aleron has since been asked to carry out more works for the franchise.
“We chose Aleron for the project because of the expertise they had in the building industry and the diverse projects experience. Our project was very specific in terms of specifications and quality of finishes and Aleron understood this well.
Aleron’s approach to delivering this project was immaculate. Dealing with Aleron Contractors on daily basis was really easy because we had consistent communication on daily basis. They gave us solutions to look at, not just one, and their approach was very flexible indeed.
I definitely world recommend Aleron Contractors on so many levels!”
