Refurbishment of health & fitness club and spa in Mayfair, London
Contract Duration:
12 Weeks

This project comprised working across three floors in an occupied building within a sensitive location in the heart of London.

A new reception was created including demolition of existing structures/fitments, new mechanical and electrical services sprinkler system, new flooring, dry lining, decorations, new ‘Armourcoat’ specialist wall finish, bespoke joinery and a new automated entrance door.

We then removed the old reception area to create a new lounge with a café, servery counter, bespoke joinery including banquet seating, a new ceiling with associated new services, flooring, wall tiling and a polished concrete finish to the new servery front. Within this phase we also created a new concierge area and we completed a soft refurbishment of the staff office and staffroom.

In the next phase we created a ‘reformer’ and ‘hot yoga’ studio which included demolitions, joinery including bespoke feature mesh panels mounted to the walls and ceiling, giving an ‘urban vibe’ in the reformer studio, including a glazed screen and acoustic glazed door. We also sprayed the structural soffit black.

We then refurbished the ‘free weights’ area and extended the square meterage of the space, including new flooring, decoration and decorative column cladding.  We created a new ‘heat grid’ area, including a specialist floor finish called ‘PAVIGYM’ turf and then installed a structural steel training wall with panels in close liaison with the structural engineer. In this area and throughout the club we installed a completely new AV system.

The next phase was ‘strength and conditioning’, which comprised of demolition of part of the perimeter wall, uplift of the old flooring and the unique point here is that we installed a ‘boxing bag rail system’ with specialist steel work fixed to structural beams. We re-decorated and installed large mirrors enhancing the customer experience, as well as refurbishing the male and female showers and changing rooms, with new sanitary wear and cubicles
