Maximising Capacity and Modernising the Look
University of Birmingham Sport recognised the need to expand their free weight lifting gym capacity while breathing new life into its aesthetics. They sought creative solutions that would provide them with the most lifting stations possible within the available gym space.
An Initial Partnership with Pullum
In 2015, when their new Sports Centre was unveiled, Pullum joined forces with University of Birmingham Sport to install 9 lifting stations. The challenge in 2023 was how to enhance capacity within the same spatial constraints.
Leveraging Pullum's expertise, a custom solution was devised using our back-to-back Half Racks. This allowed for the incorporation of 12 stations along one side of the gym, all while preserving space for 5 larger platforms dedicated to full Olympic Lifts.
Seizing the Summer Break Opportunity
As is customary in university settings, the window for transformative change occurred during the slower summer break. However, this endeavour carried an extra layer of complexity: the removal and reinstallation of over 300 square meters of gym flooring, an operation executed with precision.
The Result: A Gym That Wows
The revamped free weights gym leaves a lasting impression. Abundant chin and suspension training stations beckon fitness enthusiasts. A couple 3 bar wings offer overhead climbing challenges and the carefully chosen mix of high density rubber mats not only define drop zones but also delineate safe walkways ensuring a seamless and secure workout experience for all.
University of Birmingham Sport's gym now shows what can be achieved when capacity meets creativity!
