The Pulse Group has revamped a 1,150sq m (12,380sq ft) office block to create a health and fitness facility called Our Gym, in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, UK.

The leisure solution provider was selected by Dacorum Sports Trust (DST) to lead the £800,000 (US$1million, €943,500) project, which took 12 weeks.

Pulse Design and Build – the dedicated construction arm of the group – transformed the old office building into a modern low-cost gym, while Pulse Fitness kitted out the facility with equipment.

The two-storey fitness suite has dance and cycling studios, and a gym that boasts 100-plus cardiovascular machines fitted with digital televisions, radio and iPod connectivity.

A functional training space has been created, along with a free-weight section.

The building was reconfigured to accommodate a reception area with offices, modern changing rooms and toilets, as well as a first aid room.

Chris Johnson, Pulse managing director, said: “We are delighted to complete this project with DST and look forward to supporting them in their vision for Our Gym. We are confident that the community will benefit greatly from the introduction of a modern, state-of-the-art facility.”

Nigel McArthur, DST group operations manager, said: “As a charity, we really want to engage the community in healthier, more active lifestyle choices, and help to reduce social exclusion through sport.

“Pulse were the perfect company to create a modern fitness facility, and by working with the team on this brand new gym we hope to offer more exciting fitness opportunities in the local area.”
