This is a large building at 10 meters wide by 5 meters deep. The building has an overall height of 2.8 meters. Because of the size of this garden gym, the design needed to comply with Building Regulations. The My Eco Space team had their structural engineer workout the necessary calculations to ensure compliance.
My Eco Space uses SIPS – Structural Insulated Panels for their core structure. This core was enhanced with a combination of Glulam and Filtch beams in the roof and over the doors. Glulam beams are laminated sections of wood that have great strength and can be used in long spans. Filtch beams are a sandwich of timber and a steel plate; the three layers bolted together for strength.
A suitable beam over the door is an important consideration. Some garden room suppliers use the door frames themselves to support the roof above; this is not ideal. So, it is reassuring to know that My Eco Space are paying careful attention to this aspect of the design.
The floor specification was also enhanced in this building with an additional plywood floor deck to spread the load of the gym equipment.
As well as the large set of doors on the front elevation a single door has been fitted to the side of the building for customers to enter. A glass partition has been used inside to create an office space within the gym. Air conditioning was fitted in the gym, for easy temperature control.
This large garden gym building took the My Eco Space team just two weeks to complete on-site.
