We can now give you our up to date progress on the Gym works following our confirmations given to us on Friday 6TH December.
Early in November Edwin Thompson the Managing Agent for the Landlord issued to three Contractors the Schedule of works to tender for covering over 100 items on construction works to be completed and returned to them by Friday the 6th December.
Tenders were all to be returned by 12 Noon 6th December.
All three Contractors are to include the time frames along with the full program of works submitted within their tenders.
As of today’s date 9-12-2019 all the three contractors have asked for a further 5 days extension to deliver there tenders to Edwin Thompson for approval , this will assist them in delivering specifications to present to them to enable works to be streamlined once commenced, so all contractors must have this in by 12 noon Friday 13th December 2019.
All Contractors have said to date the works to undertake will take them at least 8 Weeks to complete once the tender has been awarded to 1 of them shortly thereafter.
We still have to await sign off on completion of tender returns from the Loss Adjuster acting for Crawford’s Insurance team, having approved this already an evaluation on all 3 will be presented to him for sign off for 1 of the contractors.
Once this is done and the date of commencement has been announced were in Business.
If the contractors are to commence works prior to Christmas we can look at a February 2020 Completion timescale, if this isn’t the case and works cannot commence until the new year we will be looking at a March 2020 Completion Date.
We can confirm the specification will be of high quality materials to be used and will have just as an impressive new look for all our members and customers.
We can confirm we are currently working with Primal Strength, the UK Leading supplier and install of New Gyms up and down the country, only this one will be a little more unique, we will become the North of England new Show site also for Primal Strength allowing us to hold even more equipment for everyone to use.
We have increased the Free weights room to over 3600 Sq. Ft , nearly trebling its original size, Increased Studio 3 to double its size to accommodate 25 in each class along with Increasing the New Spinning Studio to allow 20 participants to take part in one of the classes.
We still have a lot to do to crystallise all aspects of the Insurance with all the different parties involved but rest assured we are nearing completion on all areas.
Once we know the exact commencement date we will be in a further position to announce our proposed reopening date, this will include a 7-10 day trial period for our current frozen members prior to opening in full to the public.
Thank you for your continued support and kind words to us all throughout this period; we can see the process ahead now a lot clearer than we did several months ago.
