The Importance of Your Facility Site Assessment
Branding, Budget and Project Scope
The branding, budget and project scope of your new fitness center can be created and developed during an initial site assessment, creating a conceptual, state-of-the-art facility plan. Certified specialists may check your facility’s spatial design, traffic patterns and lines of sight, wiring and outlets, CATV needs, eco-lighting, equipment brands, cardio and strength machine placement, and many other tasks required during a comprehensive fitness and wellness facility assessment.
Whether your health and fitness space is in a residential multi-family complex, a commercial gym, or in an university athletic center, the detailed physical and architectural examination during the assessment creates the overarching strategy and blueprint for building around specific budget needs, project scope, detailed safety concerns and don’t forget the timely delivery, installation, and testing of all exercise equipment and fitness accessories.
“The combination of the client’s facility and vision with an expert site assessment is critical in developing the go-forward strategy and plan for a state-of-the-art facility,” says Bob Burgess, president of Heartline Fitness Systems.
