The Sillitoes chose Garden Spaces to design and install two buildings for them; a home gym and a cinema room. It is to be a staged project with the two buildings being separate entities but conjoined to form a large L shaped building. The overall project required planning, which we organised on their behalf and this beautiful bespoke gym is the completion of stage one. It includes many features as detailed below:

Our Solution

Extra height: Additional head room is always desirable in a gym due to enable the use of running machines etc. Because this build went through planning the additional height was requested and permitted.

Bespoke design: The dimensions were carefully designed around the various equipment intended for the gym and the screw pile foundations accommodate the slight slope of the site.

Western Red Cedar cladding: Covering all four elevations, this beautiful FSC wood that is kiln dried so will not warp. It is durable & maintenance free but can be oiled annually if preferred.

Extra height bi-folding doors: 4 sashes of 1m x 2.3m high bi-folding doors

Anti-slip composite decking: A fabulous expanse across the front, effectively doubling the space available when weather permits and creating a place to relax.

Specialist flooring: Rubber tiles, perfect for gyms.

Climate Control: Our top of the range Fujitsu LT climate control unit was installed, by experts. This unit has outstanding energy performance and the added feature of an integrated infra-red sensor.

Windows and doors: Energy efficient double glazing, all with powder coated aluminium frames (black/grey RAL7021ST)

Electrics fittings: 15 internal dimmable and 4 external energy efficient LED down-lights, 6 double power sockets, plus an ethernet point, all Part P certified.
