LAND WITH US
We are specialists in planning, design, construction and installation of raised and sunken pits to gymnastics clubs throughout the UK.
From design to construction Wright Building Services can offer a solution to enhance your gymnastics club. We are able to offer a full planning and design service and we work closely with leading gymnastics equipment suppliers to ensure your requirements are met. Please see below for some of the gymnastic pits we have installed.
We work with local Building Control (if required) throughout the build to ensure the project is constructed safely and without harm to your staff & members, as the drawings specify and without compromising fire escapes and the safety aspects of the building.
Our “raised pit” timber framed design conforms to current building regulations and specifications and it is built in such a way it offers a solid construction without compromise to safety. We are completely flexible to your requirements and can design and construct a raised pit to any size and any height depending on the type of foam finish you require (solid foam – jersey covered, loose foam etc.) with minimal disruption to your club. Obviously, being above ground this eliminates the need for excavation work and the raised podium can be finished in a variety of coverings; carpet, foam cladding, edging trims, hand-rails etc. to ensure the safety of the users. All the timbers we use are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) structurally graded, regularised, treated and are guaranteed for 25 years against damp/dry rot and infestation. We calculate the load bearing/floor spans depending on the type of equipment being used and install the correct timbers required to ensure a safe, solid and long lasting construction. The majority of the raised podiums we design and install and manufactured at our premises prior to the installation date and then transported to site ready for installation thus eliminating the time spent on site and disruption to the club.
Our “sunken pits” are constructed using proven techniques and meet the criteria of current building regulations and specifications. From excavation to installation we ensure the site is safe so you can continue with the use of your club with minimal disruption. The sunken pit can be constructed to any depth and width to accommodate a variety of finishes (fully built-in, suspended, loose foam etc.).
We can construct access steps, access podiums, stand-alone podiums, spotting boxes, u-pits etc. creating the perfect finish to your gymnasium. We can also offer the construction or renovation of internal areas such as receptions, parent rooms, viewing galleries, changing rooms, toilets etc. We can also help you and your gymnasium with project guidance and funding documentation.
Wright Building Services offer a friendly service with awareness of site safety at all times. We carry full public liability and plant insurance which is readily available to view. We work quickly and efficiently to minimise the disruption which allows you to continue using your gymnastics facility. Whichever option is best for your gymnasium you can rest assured that our construction is handed over to the gymnastic equipment suppliers completed and ready for their equipment to be installed. We provide pedestrian fencing to ensure the area is segregated and safe for you to continue your classes during the installation process.
