Mildren have completed a £1M refurbishment of a 19,000sq/ft building in Weymouth, which is being hailed as the biggest and best fitness centre in South Dorset. The new ‘super’ gym can be found on the Granby Industrial Estate, on the site previously occupied by BAE systems.
The joint venture project was undertaken on behalf of DJ Property who teamed up with Blue Fitness, the latter bringing over 30 years of extensive experience in the fitness industry, and with it, some 13 new jobs.
The site has been fully refurbished to include all window and door replacements with removal of all previous fixtures and fittings at the new ‘Zone Fitness’. New air conditioning and air handling systems have been installed to keep the gym environment consistent and a comfortable temperature at all times.
Simon French, MD of Mildren said: “Zone fitness is one of many projects that Mildren are delighted to have worked on for DJ Property. This new gym provision now forms an integral part of DJ Property’s portfolio of industrial, retail, office, leisure, and storage properties in the area, ensuring they maintain their leading position in the South Dorset commercial property market.”
Mickey Jones, Chief Executive of DJ Property said: “Zone Fitness can cater for up to 4,000 members, exactly what is required to satisfy the huge local demand and forms another piece of vital local infrastructure, which raises the attractiveness of the Granby as a place to work.”
“A massive investment has been made to create something we can be very proud of. We are all very excited for the opening in early 2018 and I am very pleased that DJ Property is making a major investment in this project; something that will bring so much to so many.”
With Mildren Construction heading up the project, they were keen to include local businesses who were contracted to supply services and equipment for the new fitness facility.
