MK Springers Gymnastic Club, Milton Keynes

Wright Building Services were asked to design and construct a raised podium for MK Springers Gymnastics Club located in Milton Keynes.

Between ourselves and the customer, we designed a purposeful raised podium to accommodate not only the equipment the club required, 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 customer for approval.

The 620mm “stand alone” podium incorporated a landing area consisting of 600mm high custom-made mats and was finished with carpet flooring and sides. The main equipment criteria was a recessed fast track, recessed tumble track and a vault run, all dismounting onto the custom-made landing mats.

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. The project took just under one week to install on site, including the installation of the equipment, and was handed over to the customer ready for use.
