Prolux were engaged by Buildline to complete the electrical fit-out for three separate Crunch Fitness Gyms in Hoppers Crossing, Epping and Springvale.
Each of the construction sites were initially a cold shell with an existing three phase supply.
Works consisted of:
- Switchboard installations
- Data and communications
- Floor boxes for power to centrally located gym equipment
- CAT6 data cabling
- AV wiring from floor boxes to TV’s
- C-Bus lighting control with touch screen
- SAL LED lighting panels; for use in the large open areas (suspended with stainless steel suspension kits)
All works were split between the gym floor, training rooms, bathrooms, reception, meeting rooms and offices.
Prolux worked in with the client to offer different options and scopes prior to the commencement of works. Crunch Fitness decided on a Sunny Australia Lighting (SAL) lighting package, which worked seamlessly with the design.
Issues incorporated power for the treadmills having to be wired in dedicated circuits back to the switchboard for warranty purposes; As the treadmills were in the middle of the open floor special floor duct had to be designed and implemented for the installation of the GPO’s.
The timelines for each gym was eight weeks, with a tight deadline of five weeks for the Springvale gym, due to issues with the property development. Springvale was the largest of the fit-outs, with the construction of their Victorian office headquarters boardroom located here. That being said, the job was brought in on time.
