Armitage Construction were enlisted to undertake the replacement air conditioning to the main gymnasium and replacement lighting to the sports hall.
The replacement lighting was sought after to provide a venue that would meet Sport England’s criteria for artificially lit facilitates and afford Manchester an opportunity to potentially host future competition and events. To achieve the above, Armitage introduced secondary steel supports to the existing steel frame and replaced the court lighting with new high performance LED luminaires. The equipment had to be carefully managed into position by hand, gaining access via a mobile elevated work platform whilst dutifully remaining mindful to the weight-limitations conditioned by the gymnasium sports floor.
The programme duration was initially six weeks. However, on this particular occasion we were able to finish ahead of the programme and offer back the facilities a week prior to planned completion.
We have considerable experience of working within the Education sector. The projects we have previously completed range from classroom extensions to general refurbishment of School buildings.
