LES MILLS AUCKLAND SAWTOOTH REPLACEMENT FAQS
The glazing and gutters of our ‘sawtooth’ roof are being replaced to stop the leaks that occur when deluges of rain hit Auckland. As well as addressing the weathertightness issue, the new refurbished roof will allow more natural light into the building as part of our ongoing refurbishment programme.
Construction on the project will start late May and is expected to be completed by September, all going well and subject to weather of course.
The materials will be a mix of locally manufactured aluminium joinery and gutters, and polycarbonate panels.
All of the work will be taking place outside of the building. What you will notice inside the Club is safety netting, debris netting, and plastic sheeting installed under each of the trusses. We will also be erecting tenting over each of the sawtooth window bays, as well as diverting the existing gutters during these works.
No, but we will be shifting around some equipment for a short period while we install the internal safety netting. Other than that, we don’t expect any disruption to the gym floor and you’ll be able to use equipment as per usual. However, if any structural repairs are found to be necessary once work has commenced we may erect a partial protective internal hoarding if required.
Yes, Health & Safety is our #1 consideration, so we have precautions in place to ensure that you can still work out safely on the gym floor below.
Not in the club, but you may notice in Les Mills Lane (from the Wellesley St Carpark) that there will be some scaffolding on the side to assist with the works. They won’t impede any access.
