Ealing-based Ruby League team, London Broncos, are famous for their provision of top quality professional rugby league in the UK’s capital. Competing at the top of the Kingstone Press Championship, London Broncos are well known for their robust determination and never say die attitude.
Following their relocation to Ealing in 2016, the club needed more space for their off-pitch activities, and specifically, needed a new gym building - fast.
CEO, Jason Loubser, spoke to Aganto and, after a site visit to scope the building, Aganto Sales manager Ian Mackenzie Ian took the Broncos on a trip to another Aganto temporary building local to them; the newly installed Hurstpierpoint College gym.
This building solution was perfect for the Broncos, who then placed an order for a 10m x 20m x 3.2m insulated temporary building with glazed doors and windows.
Is a prefab building suitable for long-term use as a gym?
Absolutely! Although classed as “temporary” Aganto prefabricated buildings are sturdy, durable structures with a lifespan of many years and are capable of standing up to heavy usage – semi-permanent buildings really. The advantage for the Broncos was the ability to rent the building, reducing cost, avoiding long-tern financial commitment and getting the new gym in place quickly.
Described by London Broncos Jon Magrin as “an awesome gym”, the building was supplied and fitted to a new concrete pad, ready for the installation of a specialist sports floor and a range full of exercise equipment, which the Broncos arranged themselves!
“Aganto seemed to be offering just what we needed and in the time we needed it, allowing the team to continue training without interruption before and after our relocation. Seeing the other, recent, similar gym was a great help too – there didn’t seem to be much ‘temporary’ about it to be honest!”
Aganto buildings can be used for much more than warehousing and storage.
