If you’re feeling overwhelmed or drowning in endless paperwork and compliance, you’re not alone. The planning system is complex and can be frustrating for business owners.
Putting together an application for a gym can be extremely hard and tiring and dealing with council can be a nightmare, not to mention the whole process can be very expensive in both time and money. Plus, we’re pretty sure, you have better things to do… That’s where we fit in!
It’s what we do, all day, everyday. With a team of 10+ highly knowledgeable and experienced town planners, property consultants, registered architect and draftsman we’re pretty good at what we do.
Car parking and Traffic Generation – How many clients and staff do you anticipate having on site at a time? How will they get to you? Are you located in a town centre? Will your patrons need to drive? Will you have adequate parking? What is considered adequate? Will you be seen to be a burden on existing infrastructure?
Appointments, Classes or Walk-Ins – Will your services be by appointment only? Will you offer classes? If so, how many clients will you allow per class? Will patrons have walk-in access to the facility? If there is walk-in access, how will you regulate the number of patrons on-site?
Noise – Is your location near a residential area? Is it a unit in a multi-unit or multi-storey building? Are offices or residences above or below your facility? What types of equipment will you have? Will you have music playing?How will you minimise noise created by your facility?
Accessibility – Is your location accessible? We find many gyms are locating in older buildings or industrial units that may not meet accessibility requirements. Meeting these requirements in existing buildings can further complicate a project, but must be addressed in the development application.
We understand that getting to the point of having the right approval for your gym is not an easy journey. It’s one that needs the best experience the industry has to offer. That’s why we’re here to help… We’d love to make your council approval journey for a gym simple and as pain free as possible.
We’ve worked on over 50 gym proposals and projects and have dedicated town planners and designers that specialise in this type of development application.
You can glean from the wisdom we’ve gained from all of our past projects. 25 years of being in the industry and our 50 consecutive years of experience has taught us a few things.
