Fitness Centres (Recreational Facilities)

A fitness centre can have varying levels of requirements depending on the sector of entertainment. Highlands Master Builders’ flexible design can accommodate any of the following: arenas, athletic complexes, baseball stadium or batting cages, equestrian centers, gymnasiums, hockey or ice skating rinks, indoor swimming pools, multi-purpose athletic facilities, roller rinks, and theaters.

From openly configured spaces to individual spaces, Highlands Master Builders can create a modern facility with your end goal in mind. Our custom-designed facilities can guarantee client appeal and functionality. You have the option for clear span and multi-span structures in varying lengths and widths and in a variety of options in colors and features. Choose to add single-skin or insulated metal panels along with a roofing system to complete your recreational building.

Do you want rock-climbing walls? Think about ceiling height since that is critical. A renovation can sometimes raise a ceiling, but a new build can be designed for it. What about breakout areas for classes such as yoga and dance? They need a special studio with low-impact flooring and plenty of mirrors, and perhaps soundproof walls. Wet areas such as a pool and spa have unique space planning and safety considerations. And don’t forget about storage and locker rooms.

Think about all the features that you want to offer your clients and members and the individual needs that go along with them. Constructing a gym isn’t like a typical business since each feature often has its own safety and aesthetic requirements. Even electrical service is a big deal, since everything from spinning equipment and treadmills to your sound system and video displays use it.

Highlands Master Builders’ expertise in recreational facilities is sure to bring you satisfaction for your design needs, and long-term success to your business.

This depends on the type of renovation and the manpower that will be required. When you meet with your Renovation Consultant they will be able to give you an approximate start date.

A few key questions to ask could be: “How long have you been in business?”, “Have you ever done a project like this one, if so tell me about it?”, “Do you have insurance?”, “Who does the work; you, your employees, or is the project completely done by sub-contractors?” With years of experience under our belts, Highlands Master Builders is happy to provide all of these answers, and provide references if need be.

A change order is a written statement signed by the customer authorizing the contractor to do additional work not included in the original contract. The change order should be signed before the additional work is started. A change order also may be written when a contractor comes across any unforeseen damage or problem, or when a permit or jurisdictional authority requires additional work. In any event, we will always do our best to prevent change orders and minimize any financial impact they may have.

We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!

If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
