Following the market trends, all projects since 2018 have been designed using Revit platform – a BIM software system. By using BIM (Building Information Modeling), Magnum streamlines and simplifies the works for the customer, as well as for the constructor.
Within the contract scope, Magnum experts develop the venue concept, create the design project and permit and approval documentation. Magnum also offers supervision services for construction or carry out the construction works as a general contractor.
Magnum team follows a standard process in gym design, and as a result our projects meet all the requirements of the customer and of the environment.
In cooperation with the customer, our sports engineers create the concept, and choose the facility type and its functionality. The experts estimate the technical and financial parameters, its capacity, and take into account the facility main purpose (training vs. competitions). The ultimate goal of the building determines its floor area, and the amount of the utility rooms.
At the concept design stage the visitor capacity is estimated, and their preferences are considered. The terrain features, road infrastructure and other features are also taken into account by the engineering team.
Design of gyms and other sports venues includes sketches, drafts and 3D visualizations of the future venue. The experts perform architectural and space planning for the venue's rooms, placing the engineering systems, equipment, furniture and decorative elements.
The design project provides the visualization of the facility, and gives the customer a better idea of the end product. The sketches and drafts are approved by the customer, and then are used as a basis for the engineering design project documentation.
Magnum experts develop a set of documentation defining the architectural, functional, structural and engineering solutions to be used in further venue construction.
Design documentation is needed to review the venue for compliance with the technical regulations (by the government of non-government bodies) before the construction works are initiated, to assess the venue against the design brief (by the customer representative), to estimate the project budget, to receive the permits and approvals from various bodies, and to develop the documentation for construction and assembly works based on the approved solutions.
Construction documentation is the set of graphic and text documents that cover the scope of work for implementing all chosen technical solutions required for construction and assembly.
Construction documentation is developed based on the project design documentation, and is required to implement the technical, architectural and technology solutions during the construction.
Gym design takes into account the type of gym and, thus, the required functionality.
These facilities are designated for training in a specific type of sport. The most popular types are: boxing, artistic gymnastics, weightlifting, and wrestling.
Specialized equipment prevents the gym from using it for non-target sports.
Multifunctional gyms can accommodate training sessions and competitions in various types of sports. Universal equipment is installed for uninterrupted sports center performance.
These gyms gained popularity only in the recent decade. The most popular types of gyms are built for gymnastics, table tennis and kids’ active games.
These gyms are intended for recreation, entertainment and competitions in niche sports. Compared to other gym types, they are smaller. They are accessible to all the visitors of all ages.
Some examples include: bowling, billiard, and squash.
For any gym type, Magnum engineers will develop the concept, the design project, and prepare all the required documentation. With over 25 years of experience, we can face any challenge and design any kind of sports facility.
