Swansea City are committed to nurturing the talent they house, ensuring a future generation of footballers that have impeccable skill and strength.
We were invited to design and bid for the work in the new Swansea City training centre just down from the Liberty Stadium. We provided a gym design that zoned free weight, cv, functional training and an Olympic lifting area to allow for a flow around the room, thus reducing ‘honeypot’ areas. Flooring was important to protect the new first floor concrete slab, so we provided a reinforced 40mm dumbbell area floor, and then provided 12mm rubber flooring across the remaining area.
CV equipment was placed in front of the picture windows over-looking the pitches, whereas the Olympic Lifting zone was placed opposite the physiotherapy room and office, so that there could always be someone watching over the lifters.
The installation was a success for Perform Better and Swansea City, and led to us supplying the equipment for the new 1St Training centre the following year.
