Commercial Steel Building Design for CityFitness Burnside: A Success Story

Initial Opportunity: Connecting Coresteel and CityFitness

The CityFitness Burnside project came to light through a Christchurch architect who linked Coresteel with a developer who sought an innovative design-build for a renowned national tenant, CityFitness.

The Objective: Setting a New Benchmark for Health Clubs

The client's vision was clear: craft a design that would pave the way for future CityFitness health clubs. Our dedicated design team dove deep into the planning phase, ensuring every facet of the commercial steel building was tailored to suit CityFitness's unique business needs and to address the site's inherent ground challenges.

Overcoming Ground Challenges: Geotechnical Innovations

Given the site's history, enhancing its geotechnical properties became imperative. Our approach involved installing vibro stone columns, a technique where a down-hole vibrator injects gravel pillars into the ground, displacing rock and forming high-density stone columns. This fortified the soil matrix, crucially reducing the risk of liquefaction — a poignant concern given the memories of the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes.

Detailed Fit-Outs: Prioritising Members' Experience

CityFitness's brief highlighted the need for meticulous toilet and washroom layouts, ensuring optimal service for health club members. The minimalist Coresteel Buildings DonoBeam® steel structure, paired with our insulated Conqueror PIR roof panel, guarantees durability and heightened indoor comfort.

Aesthetic Excellence: Crafting a Memorable Exterior

CityFitness Burnside is not just another gym; it's a statement. The glass facade, complemented by captivating ACM panelling and CityFitness's vibrant brand colours, stands out. We incorporated a grand parapet, augmenting the building's robust, squared aesthetic and elevating the club's visual appeal.
