When it comes to fit outs, the work the Oaktree team can produce knows no bounds; take our latest project in Winnersh Triangle as a prime example.

Move HQ, a brand-new fitness company, have taken over a former soft play facility, and the team at Oaktree Interiors have been appointed to design & transform the space into an elite gym kitted out with the latest equipment and facilities, as well as employee office space, a mezzanine, and a café/canteen area.

The gym will be the first elite fitness facility in the area; this brand-new gym fit out will be exclusively for elite sportspeople, specially designed for athletes, by athletes. So, as you might imagine, seasoned experts were needed to carry out such a specialised job; and this is where we came in.

Move HQ’s new gym fit out in Winnersh

This new fit out represents Move HQ's first-ever facility, so the need for them to hit the ground running with a top-class, suitably equipped gym is vital for them to establish their brand.

Taking place over 2 floors (and in 10,000 sq ft of space),the main part of the project will involve a complete strip out of the existing interior, with key build areas being the gym, café, changing rooms, seminar rooms and treatment rooms. The striking feature of the design is an overhanging gallery on the First Floor – overlooking the main gym area and running track.

MoveHQ Gym Entrance

To summarise, the new gym fit out consists of:

  • Ground Floor.
    Reception, office space, a running track, 3G workshop/open space, cardio/TRX/free weights/mats areas, male and female staff restrooms.
  • First Floor.
    Treatment rooms (x3),seminar/meeting rooms, café and break out area, male and female changing facilities, unisex WCs, disabled WCs and showers, kitchen/storage area, cleaners store and plant room, a library and a viewing/lounge area (overlooking the gym).
MoveHQ gym fit out mezzanine layout design

In terms of infrastructure, Oaktree be fitting out complete mechanical and technical set-ups, including air conditioning, ventilation and lighting. A mezzanine floor and cantilever viewing gallery will allow for the open views of the gym, whilst also fitting out all flooring, furniture and partitioning too.

The project will take 12 weeks to complete, providing MoveHQ with a late-summer opening date when most of us will be back to a more 'normal' lifestyle.

The value of health and fitness in the workplace post-COVID

As more people start to return to some semblance of 'normality' after the COVID-19 pandemic, fitness facilities in general will be vital – especially in an area such as Berkshire, with its abundance of commercial offices. Workers are likely to want to take care of their physical and mental health in a post-COVID world, and facilities like these should be easily available to offer such a service.

Having a quality workplace geared towards boosting the physical and mental health of employees will lead to a less stressful and more productive atmosphere. Therefore, every business must take the health effects of their work environment into consideration when thinking about redesigning their offices.

Whether it is something as elaborate as fitting out a non-site gym for people to keep physically fit, introducing breakout facilities for mental wellness or a simple change of colours on the walls to improve the general atmosphere; any kind of workplace can improve the physical and mental wellbeing of their employees.

The Oaktree team can help you with anything you may need to achieve this.
