Virgin Active

As a part of Virgin Active's live gym refurbishment, our team was involved in creating and supplying a variety of bespoke joinery for a number of sites across the city. All of these were fabricated in our state of the art workshop and included:

1. Angular Reception Desk made from Corian - Whittle is an approved fabricator and installer of Corian. The reception desk that we created for Virgin Active was made in sections ready for a seamless out-of-hours installation.

2. Cafe servery

3. Business centre

4. Feature staircase cladding and lighting - All stairs were beautifully clad in a high gloss Formica laminate. We also worked closely with the design team and lighting engineers to design the low and high-level lighting around the lighting specifications and ensured we maintained the lighting channels.

5. Point of sale

6. Retail display

7. Concierge desk

8. Towel drops

8. Gym desk

9. Feature Wall Panelling - Our team fabricated the stunning feature slatted wall panelling, incorporating strip lighting and storage.

10. Vanity units - Part of the brief was to manufacture and install the joinery elements in the fit-out of the Virgin Active changing rooms. All of the timber work, vanity units, storage and mirrors were installed on-site and to a tight programme.

All works were carried out with meticulous scheduling and programming to ensure that it was business as usual for Virgin Active’s gym users and visitors.
