Gym Gear is proud to be working with Reading Rockets Basketball Club who have been busy preparing a new training facility for their players during the lockdown. Reading Rockets Basketball Club was formed in 1997, the family behind the formation of the club had a mission to create something across the community that had life-changing opportunities for anyone and everyone. The club has been growing ever since it had been formed. The owner of Reading Rockets Basketball Club decided that they wanted to create a gym facility for their players to have a place to workout and train. The owner had sent over to us a Wishlist of equipment that they had seen and thought was appropriate for their facility. Once we had a confirmed list of definite equipment, information regarding product specifications, delivery, installation, warranty, service and maintenance was sent over to the owner to check. When the wish list of equipment and all information had been approved we moved onto our design stage.
Using the approved list of equipment we created a 3D mock-up of the facility, placing all of the chosen equipment inside. Designing the layout and functionality of the facility. We created a 3D walkthrough video and took 3D visual images to show the owner exactly what the gym facility would look like. This allows them to double-check all of the equipment is suitable and fits well inside the building, and it gives them an opportunity to swap or change the equipment or layout if they are not 100% satisfied with it. The 3D visuals give you a feel for how much space you have for movement in your gym. These designs were sent off to be checked and approved. Once the 3D visual video and images were approved we then continued to our delivery and installation stage of the process.
