Close collaboration with the club’s interior design team has resulted in restful, relaxing colour schemes to create “truly stunning” changing rooms

stunning changing rooms.” A creative rethink of the available space

proved the key to ensuring that members enjoy their privacy, particularly in the ladies changing room, where Craſtsman have achieved discreet areas to effectively create three changing areas in one. Te challenge was to complete the refur-

bishment without closing the changing rooms working predominantly overnight. Tis complex month-long project called

for close collaboration between Hogarth’s internal design co-ordinator, the building team, the air handling contractor, electri- cians and Craſtsman’s own installation team, all working through the night to limit the disruption for members. Situated in a prime residential area, the

club had to ensure noise levels were tightly controlled, while cleaning operators moved on site early each morning to ready the club for its daily opening at 6am. “Many of our members own their


companies so come into the club both before and aſter work,” explains Chaffey. “Tere is oſten a queue waiting to enter the club in the morning, so it was vital to have the club ready for them aſter each night’s work.” Refurbishing changing rooms from floor

to ceiling presented a huge challenge,” Chaffey continues: “Particularly for a club of Hogarth’s standing, where member expec- tations run so high. In the ladies changing room, we worked back virtually to first fix ready for fitting new plasterboarding - while

reconfiguring the locker layout to create the space to change in comfort and privacy.” In what was a “tricky and fragmented

project” that required extensive planning and preparation to succeed, the teams “all worked together to minimise aggravation to our members,” Chaffey stresses. John Gibbs adds: “Tis was a great

example of co-ordinated teamwork committed to realise the club’s vision in meeting the Hogarth’s members’ ever- rising level of expectations.”
