Design & Feasability Study
K2 were requested to review potential changes to the existing health club to increase membership and provide improved facilities. We developed a series of design options which were costed, checked for buildability, since the existing centre needed to remain open and operational, and reviewed against the brief.
A detailed option appraisal report was produced and presented back to the leisure centre operator for consideration. The report clearly articulated the advantages and disadvantages of each option and each scheme included an outline programme and budget. Visits to and benchmarking with other leisure centres was carried out to compare the current facilities with the standards that were being offered by other local operators and national health and fitness chains.
A series of workshops were held with designers and representatives from the leisure centre operator before a preferred scheme was selected and presented to the Board.
