Case Study: Synergy Group Fitness – Commercial Building Contract

Synergy Gym

The client:

Synergy LogoSynergy is a group fitness company with gyms in Edinburgh and Livingston. http://www.synergygroupfitness.co.uk.

Ross Paterson, Synergy’s Owner, contacted A&J Building to help develop their Livingston venue and, following initial planning and consultation, we were able to create a new wet room, changing facilities, office area, chiropractors treatment and therapy rooms, as well as fitness studios.

What we did for them:

On initial consultation, it was clear that we required the help of an architect to draw up detailed plans for the development. We brought in the right support and liaised with Synergy and the architect to discuss what was possible within the space.

We were quickly able to establish potential issues with the roofing and advised Synergy to raise this quickly with the landlord so that they avoided any issues with their lease, or unforeseen costs further down the line.

A&J Building were able to efficiently deliver all the required electrical, plumbing and joinery work. This included soundproofing of the studios, installation of the main lighting and emergency lighting, all flooring work, and all fire and emergency regulation work. We built bespoke cupboards to enclose all services as well as provide storage for equipment. We also improved access to different areas of the venue by creating new door openings and improving access between the two main buildings. In addition, we installed fire doors and completed all joinery finishing to the gym areas.

The only aspects of this project that A&J Building did not directly contribute were the ventilation and final decorating work, although we did all the preparation work for this. As with all our projects, we developed good working relationships and good lines of communication with the client and all other contractors. This meant that every stakeholder was always fully informed, every step of the way, and ensured we delivered the project on time and on budget. This also meant that we helped save Synergy time and money, and importantly, reduce risk by taking time to advise the client effectively.

The results:

We are delighted with the finished results. Below are a few images of the various aspects of the work.
