The complex included a gymnasium area, which required high floor loading capabilities and a 3.0m high ceiling for the free weights section, as well as some of the specialised equipment used by Aviva Premiership side – Wasps Rugby. The robust specification of the modular buildings meant that SiBCAS were one of the few companies that could offer such a facility at short notice.
Due to the restricted area available on the site, and the large number of different rooms required, the modular sports complex had to be designed extremely carefully to ensure it would fit within the boundaries and the room adjacencies would work as required by the client.
The proposed location was a grassed area, and part of this was a bank which fell away by approx. 2.0m. Due to the challenging topography and the timescales, the client constructed a scaffold gantry system, which the whole modular sports complex was installed onto.
The gym equipment was installed and the client moved their furniture in on schedule, the modular building was handed over to the client’s satisfaction and there was an open day on July 15th to launch the new sports facilities. Honoured guests included Rugby District Mayor and other dignitaries from Wasps Rugby and Broad Street Rfc.
