Midlands Gymnastics Academy, Nuneaton

Wright Building Services were asked to design and construct a raised pit podium for Midlands Gymnastics Academy in Nuneaton. Midlands Gymnastics Academy are an exciting new club with a purpose built brand new facility.

Between ourselves, the customer and the equipment supplier, we designed a purposeful raised podium to accommodate not only the equipment the Club requested, but also within an area so as not to compromise on the floor equipment. Our “tried and tested” timber pit design was drawn out and the plans submitted to the relevant parties.

The 1200mm raised pit podium incorporated a loose foam pit, two sets of access steps, our GRP handrail and was finished with carpet flooring and foam cladded sides. The main equipment criteria was a sunken fast track, full vault run and a set of a-bars, all dismounting into the main pit area, as well as a separate u-pit area incorporating a set of high-bars.

Once the plans/drawings had been approved and a date was agreed, Wright Building Services started the manufacturing process at our premises and transported the framework to site prior to the agreed installation date. Wright Building Services were on site for just over one week carrying out the installation, resulting in minimal disruption to the Club. The finished project was then handed over ready for the equipment supplier to install the loose foam and relevant equipment.
