Our experience has taught us that fitness facility design is a complex process extending well beyond equipment selection. From initial conceptualization through ongoing operation we can help in every stage of fitness center design.
The initial design phase consists of spending time with our clients to define target demographics, space allocation, and feasibility. We work directly with our clients to develop the facility business plan and to determine projected costs of the design phase including interior design components, equipment procurement, program development and implementation.
Our company works directly with architects and interior designers to define the space needed for the many different components of fitness centers. We also consult on features such as window/door location, mirror placement, flooring specs, HVAC system location, and built-in specs.
We develop equipment proposals tailored to meet our clients needs. These include strength and cardiovascular equipment, audio/visual equipment, front desk/membership tracking hardware and software, group class equipment, and other interior design components such as flooring, built-ins, lockers, etc..
We use a number of variables to determine correct equipment quantities and locations for each of our in-house design layouts. Working directly with interior designers and architects we can help determine correct electrical placement and interior design features so that equipment delivery can be a seamless process..
In addition to the 2D layouts we also offer our clients three dimensional drawings and video fly0-thru's of finished spaces to be used as sales tools. All of our design is done in-house working directly with the initial 2D layouts.
Depending on our clients needs we can either procure equipment or place it out for bids through the top equipment manufacturers. Our years of work experience within the fitness industry have led to business relationships with all of the top manufacturers ensuring our clients of the best pricing.
The future of fitness facilities lies with green operations. Our experience with green planning allows us to infuse our knowledge of efficiency into each of the above components in the design phase to develop a facility that is ecologically sound.
Since we develop the facility design and layouts we prefer to help with overseeing the equipment installation to ensure that it is performed correctly and efficiently and any potential problems that may arise can be addressed by our staff immediately.
We can consult on risk assessent for ADA compliance, OSHA compliance, physical facility liability, procedural liability, and employee relations. In addition, we can Incorporating code compliance and recommendations from ADA, ACSM, OSHA into our design.
