St. Agnes Church Wellness Centre

Spider Cranes on site

The spider cranes have arrived at the St. Agnes Church site in Newtown Road in Hove, where are we engineering a new Wellness Centre for holistic fitness and leisure company Natural Fit.

The spider’s compact size and heavy lifting power is perfect for installing the new steel frame within the confines of the project’s historical church setting.

Once in place, the new steel frame will form the basis of a two floor structure that will house the centre’s bespoke gym, spa, fitness studios and health-inspired café facilities over three storeys.

Spa and pool under constructionWork is well under way on site and the pool and jacuzzi facilities on the ground floor – which really take advantage of the church’s great architecture and ambiance – have now been cast.

Gyoury Self is providing full structural and civil engineering services, including structural design of the steel frame which has been fabricated by Southfield Structural Services. The main contractor on this design and build project is Kent Structures.

When the high calibre wellness centre opens in Spring 2020, it will also offer massage and skin treatments, osteopathy, corrective exercise and other exercise including one-to-one sessions and group classes. This is in keeping with Natural Fit’s ethos which places an emphasis on a holistic approach to health and fitness.

St. Agnes is one of two new facilities housed within interesting historic buildings that we are currently engineering for Natural Fit. Work is already well underway at the second site located in Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells. For details of this project, click here.
