As part of a new multi-million pound extension, the gym forms the focal point for the latest development at the Co-op Academy Manchester. To maximise the available space within the area whilst including all of the equipment requirements of the P.E. Department.
Gym Design & Planning:
The initial 3D gym designs proved valuable as the building was still in construction during the planning stage of the project. The layout designs were amended to ensure that the overall gym was exactly as required by the P.E. Department who were looking for a good range of both Cardio and Strength machines together with a number of associated fitness accessories.
A good range of both Cardio and Strength equipment were installed together with an area of heavy duty rubber flooring for the free weights area. The gym is located on the first floor of the building and therefore 30mm flooring was specifically used to protect the floor whilst also minimising the noise.
The completed gym has been a great success for the academy as it is being heavily used by both the students and staff. The gym itself was installed during the Summer holidays ready to be fully operational at the beginning of the new academic year.
