The Brisbane flood of 2011 meant that affected businesses needed to mitigate future risk. To so do local gymnasium Workout Indooroopilly engaged the services of renowned Peter Young & Co Architects. Petro Builders was contracted to build the extension, which was designed to minimise potential future flood risk and also provide a first class fitness training experience for discerning gym clients. Led by Petro Builders site supervisor Rowan Holland, the project proceeded on time and on budget.
Petro Builders followed a clear building program of reinforced concrete columns, beams and a suspended slab. The columns extend from the ground to the ceiling line where they meet a steel truss that supports the roof structure. The build involved dealing with a broad range of commercial building methodologies and materials.
The entire build was completed with the gym operating at full capacity and with minimal impact on gym clients or parking. This project exemplifies Petro Builders speciality to work closely with the clients and architects to produce an exceptional result.
