£2m refurbishment complete at Bristol’s Greenway Centre

by Andrea Jezovit | 02 Jun 2008

Southmead Development Trust has completed a renovation worth just under £2m at its Greenway Centre in Bristol.

The project saw the creation of a new structure designed by Childs and Sulmann Partners, with a fitness suite featuring over 30 pieces of cardio and strength equipment from Pulse Fitness, including the Freedom and Evolve ranges.

The suite also contains freeweight equipment and 11 group cycles. Much of the equipment is IFI-accredited, and the site is working with the IFI in hopes of receiving the IFI mark provisional level of accreditation.

Butler and Cox supplied the floor for the fitness room and a dance studio, also located in the new structure. A new kitchen and servery have been supplied by Space Catering.

P and G Contractors completed the refurbishment of the centre’s existing main hall, snooker hall and sports hall, with sponsorship from Kellaway Building Supplies, Allied Plant and Carters Electrical.

Exercise classes including boxercise and spinning will be available to the community in the new gym, with daily activities for eight to 14-year-olds and a range of sessions aimed at the elderly and mobility impaired, including armchair aerobics and Tai Chi.

The centre is also working with a GP surgery that is relocating to the site to provide a holistic approach to healthy lifestyles.

“The whole project is aimed at increasing the levels of participation in sporting activities throughout the local community, which ranks highly on the Multiple Indices of Deprivation,” said Julie Doughty, Southmead Development Trust operations manager. “Pulse has an excellent reputation for their work with the IFI and their impressive range of accredited equipment has enabled us to provide a fully inclusive gym.”

The trust funded the refurbishment with help from a Sport England Grant.
