New Project – Anytime Fitness Gym, Bedfordshire.

Recent Project

Storage Concepts are delighted to announce the completion of a new Anytime Fitness Gym project in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

Storage Concepts have recently been appointed by Anytime Fitness as a preferred vendor for Gym fit out projects.

Having been awarded the contract by Anytime Fitness, Leighton Buzzard, Storage Concepts began the work of transforming a rundown industrial building formerly used as a car showroom into a modern, contemporary gym suite.

Works included the demolition of an existing central block work and mezzanine structure, opening the building into a single open plan space.  Storage Concepts then set about constructing the new areas and enclosures to form the gym facility including members and guest lobbies, admin. and P.T. offices and private members bathrooms, a unique facility offered under the Anytime banner.

The turnkey fit out works included all mechanical and electrical installations, including specialist air conditioning, ventilation and electrical / lighting systems, plumbing and tiling works for the contemporary bathrooms and specialist floor finishes throughout the open plan gym areas.

Inside Anytime Fitness

Storage Concepts also undertook works to the external elevation removing old wooden framed, single glazed windows and industrial door sections and replacing with modern aluminium double glazed energy efficient systems for the new gym external elevations.

Ground works externally to provide block paving and cycle storage completed the turn-key package for this exciting new venture.

Derek Stephens of Anytime Fitness, Leighton Buzzard comments:

“We choose Storage Concepts based on their professionalism, the fact that they were keen to complete their first site for Anytime Fitness and of course price! The level of support and workman ship throughout the process has been exceptional.  We are delighted with the new facility, as are our new members, and we have received many compliments from within our industry. The project was completed on time despite a number of twists and turns along the way.  Many thanks to Colin and his team, you made the whole process as painless as possible & we hope to work with you soon on the next project.

Toilets and Changing Rooms

Following completion of the Anytime Fitness, Leighton Buzzard site, Storage Concepts are pleased to announce confirmation of their selection for two further build sites where construction works will shortly commence.

Fit Out & Refurbishment – The Maltsters, Burton on Trent

Fit Out & Refurbishment – The Maltsters, Burton on Trent

Storage Concepts was delighted to be contracted by Odin Estates and Hillarys Developments to provide fit out and refurbishment works within a Grade II listed Malsters Building in Burton on Trent.  The original contract works commenced in 2007 and involved the installation of a two storey stairwell core with feature staircase and 8 person passenger lift together with full speculative interior fit out of ground, first and second floor offices.  Storage Concepts carried out a full turnkey installation package providing plasterboard partitioning, dry lining, new windows and doors, staircases, lift and all structural elements.

These offices were subsequently used as a showroom for the project and at time of writing in November 2011 over 6,415m² /  69,025ft² of offices have now been let to various tenants, the largest single let being to Bombardier Transportation who took 1,830m² /  19,690ft² on the second floor of the Maltsters Building.  Storage Concepts were able to secure the fit out project works from both the developer and occupier resulting in a contract of circa 1 million pounds.  For the developer fit out works mirrored those completed in other areas of the building including shot blasting of timbers, supply and installation of new stairwell cores and all dry lining partitioning, electrics, plumbing and floor finishing to provide the shell build specification.

Storage Concepts were then retained by Bombardier Transportation to carry out the interior fit out requirements for their own occupation including plasterboard partitioning, suspended ceilings and air conditioning.  Storage Concepts were also retained to provide specialist AV equipment for meeting and boardroom areas and following a separate tender process also secured the contract to provide all the office furniture including desking, seating and storage.   A separate contract was also placed for the installation of mobile racking for archive storage and this included the need for strengthening the existing Maltsters floor to allow the dynamic loads imposed by the rolling racking system installed within the second floor facility.

Storage Concepts were able to provide a turnkey package installation over an accelerated 14 week installation period.  A time lapse camera was used from start to finish of the contract enabling the client to keep up with on site progress from afar and also serve as a useful visual record of the installation.



Stewart Kidston of Bombardier Transportation worked closely with Storage Concepts throughout the construction phase and offered the following comment on completion.  “It has been a pleasure to work with Storage Concepts and particularly their Director for the contract Colin Whittingham, we have been able to work very closely together in all aspects of the installation to ensure that the final finish product meets the needs of our growing business and everyone involved is delighted with the final result”.

Office partitioning

Storage Concepts continued to work with Odin Estates developing additional space within the Malsters Building which now includes amongst its occupiers East Staffordshire Borough Council and their recently relocated planning, building control and senior management facilities.  Colin Whttingham of Storage Concepts comments “this has been the most exciting building I have been involved with in the last 20 years bringing a Grade II listed building back into commercial use has been an exciting challenge and the aesthetics provided by the newly refurbished office areas for the new tenants is exceptional”.

At time of writing further development space is available within the Malsters Building for further information contact either Colin Whttingham of Storage Concepts or Paul Rushden of Rushden Hickman, commercial agents acting on behalf of  the developer on 01283 517747, Rushden Hickman Ltd, 186 Horninglow Street, Anson Court, Burton Upon Trent, Staffordshire DE14 1NG.

New Head Office for ARCA

Head Office Refit

ARCA external before

Storage Concept’s Interior Concepts Division has recently completed the full fit out of new Head Office facilities for ARCA (Asbestos Removal Contractors Association) in Burton on Trent.

Storage Concepts was able to secure the contract against stiff competition by providing value engineered solutions enabling the previously over budget fit out tender to be re-designed, the amended specifications allowing value engineering and a in budget final design and cost.

One of the key elements to this redesign was altering the previously architects specified beam and block first floor to a Storage Concepts independent steel mezzanine floor.  This together with other value engineered redesigns on the interior fit out enabled the project to proceed within the client’s budget.

Storage Concepts completed a turnkey package installation turning the 750m² / 8070ft² single storey industrial unit into a combined office training and practical workshop facility.

The existing industrial unit was sub divided with a 1 hour jumbo stud wall with one side providing practical workshop facilities and one side providing a two tier training and office facility.  Storage Concepts installed an independent steel mezzanine floor with 1 hour fire rating and with the provision of plasterboard partitions to ground and first floor to form executive offices, meeting rooms, training suites, toilets, tea prep and rest area facilities.  A feature staircase was installed and a disabled platform lift and new windows were installed a ground and first floor level.  Finally all of the mechanical and electrical installations were also undertaken by Storage Concepts Interior Concepts Division including full electrical installation, data and telecom and the installation of mechanically fed fresh air ventilation and full heating and cooling air conditioning systems.

Office Furniture

Once the shell build was completed Storage Concepts then completed the installation of floor finishes and office furniture, seating and storage providing a full turnkey package installation from empty building to a fully fitted facility.

ARCA external after

Upon completion of the project works Steve Sadley Chief Executive at ARCA comments “we are delighted with our new facility, the layout and design provided by Colin of Storage Concepts has proved to be perfect for our requirements and our staff are now enjoying the benefits of an excellent new working environment.   Without the assistance of Storage Concepts and their ability to value engineer the original design the project as a whole was in jeopardy.  It has been a pleasure to work with Storage Concepts through the construction phase to completion and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies for installations of this type”.
