This project involves the design and construction of a new two storey Next Generation Health Club.
The site was an existing facility which continued in operation during the development of the new club and sporting facilities. The existing in ground services and carpark were adaptively reduced to obtain best value for existing infrastructure.
Northrop’s design staff visited existing facilities developed by the club in Adelaide to fully understand their business model look for opportunities for improvement and clarify the culture of the organisation. We understood for this that the client required us to appreciate that their product is a club rather than a gym.
We worked very closely with the project builder – Manteena to finesse our design to achieve a fast build, on time and on budget. Our collaboration techniques included use of early sketch plans and liaison with the builder to confirm the most cost effective form of construction. The final facility includes a range of club options including a bar, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym, squash courts and commercial tenancies.
