This summer and next summer we’ll be working hard at both City and Collegiate Campus to improve facilities for our Sheffield Hallam Active customers. This will result in better changing facilities at both campuses and a larger Fitness Suite at Collegiate with a greater range of equipment and direct access to the new Heart of the Campus. This means some minor changes to arrangements during the work. The details of the work are as follows.
Phase One – Summer 2013
The changing rooms for the fitness suite in the Norfolk Building will be closed for refurbishment from Monday 19th August until Wednesday 18th of September 2013. This is to improve the lighting, flooring, ceilings, showers and toilet cubicles and décor.
During this work alternative changing room facilities will be provided in the nearby Surrey Building, Level 0 next to the Sports Hall.
Work will take place in the Pearson Building to extend the changing rooms and fitness suite in two phases starting this summer 2013.
From 29 July to 30 August alterations to the Fitness Suite roof and removal of the glazing overlooking the old courtyard will take place, ready for connecting to the new Heart of the Campus building. Between the same dates the changing rooms will also be closed as they are being extended into the former laundry area to provide better and larger changing areas from September.
During this work treadmills and other equipment will be relocated to the Movement Studio and there will be no changing room facilities available in Pearson, therefore we advise customers to change before coming to the gym.
All elements of this first phase of work is expected to be completed by 2 September 2013.
Phase Two – Summer 2014
The second phase will see the reception move back upstairs and the fitness suite extended into the corridor and Physiotherapy room to provide a much better fitness experience and access to more facilities and space for our members.
The Physiotherapy room will be moved to Pearson Level 1, where the temporary reception was located. This phase of work is expected to be completed September 2014.
