£8 million expansion and refurbishment programmme - £1.5 million per club. Fitness First adopted an ‘in house’ strategy for procurement from framework contractors who have the experience required to deliver good quality finishes and services to tight timescales. The challenge: To work in live clubs with members having continued, uninterrupted use of the facilities, to manage a vast number of direct trades contractors and suppliers to ensure on time deliveries of materials and goods. Due to the size and location of the clubs very little contractor storage areas were available. Outcome: Successful delivery of clubs on time and budget to member satisfaction.
