A customer we had previously built for a few years ago came back to us, because they wanted a larger Garden Building as their home Sports Therapy and Clinical Pilates business needed to expand into larger premises.

A 38.32m2 Traditional Garden Lodge was designed to incorporate around four large reformer Pilates machines and Pilates chairs. The new Garden Lodge Pilates studio means the customer can teach larger classes, whilst the high pitched roof and ceiling can accommodate the large exercise machines.

The Garden Lodge was built in around 4 weeks, which included the initial ground works and extending the concrete slab foundations, removal of the old Garden Studio, as well as the construction, installation of the electrics and full plastering, internal decoration and Western Red Cedar timber exterior.

Due to the size of the Garden Lodge, it required a Building Regulations Approval where a Building Control certificate is issued after the final inspection. However this extra cost isn’t always required if the building is less than 30m2 in size. As we had previously built for the customer, in order to keep costs down, they decided to keep their original windows and doors.

Overall, the new Garden Lodge is a fantastically large space, giving the customer a professional, commercial space for them and their clients to enjoy and exercise in comfortably. The floor to ceiling glazing means lots of natural light can filter in, giving a peaceful atmosphere to the Pilates studio.
