Hartpury College is a further education college and associate faculty of the University of the West of England situated in the village of Hartpury, Gloucestershire.
Hartpury got in touch with us to discuss the expansion of their sport education facility. We worked with them to install and fit a brand new teaching facility. With one of the best S&C courses being taught at the college, a new facility only enhanced this.
The facility was designed to give lecturers more of an ability to teach new concepts in which they may have been restricted previously, with the amount of equipment within the gym it allows all students to work at the same time.
Another fundamental area of the project was the Monitoring and Testing Equipment. Hartpury invested in Optojump, Activio and iThlete, as a result the students are able to use the same equipment that is currently in the professional sports industry during their studies.
Students and lecturers are incredibly proud of their college and we strived to ensure they were proud of this facility, this is why we had all platforms, racks and benches custom designed with their logo and college colours. As well as the aesthetic look the custom equipment gave the facility, it also reminded the students and lecturers that the college cares tremendously about their education and are willing to invest to provide the best facilities possible.
