Manned 24 hour Call-out Service

Pure Gym (Hope Street)

Client: Pure Gym (Hope Street Location)
Project length: 1 day
Completion date: July 2022
HF divisions involved: Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Heating & AC

Brief project description: The Pure Gym on Hope Street in Glasgow had to temporarily close over a weekend in July because the Gyms water system booster pump had failed causing the entire building to have no hot or cold running water.

Our Mechanical Engineers were called out on the Monday and quickly diagnosed the issue.  The solution required a new booster pump motor and invertor however the lead time for these parts would be 8-10 weeks!

The Hope Street Pure Gym is one of the brands busiest locations in Glasgow and being closed for any length of time was simply not an option.  Our Mechanical Engineers carried out a temporary repair that bypassed the pump set so that the gym had cold and hot running water again (though not to the same level as they normally require).  This temporary solution allowed the gym to reopen again.

Due to the importance of keeping the business open and at the high standards expected, it was decided that a completely new pump set would be installed rather than wait the 8-10 weeks for the replacement parts.

We carried out the fitting of the replacement pump set and conducted necessary tests on the new device to ensure that it was installed correctly.

The Pure Gym is now up and running again at full capabilities thanks to a combination of intelligent thinking from our on call team to conduct a bypass and our installation team for fitting a new pump set so quickly.

Project Challenges: The previous pump set which had broken was a 3 phase unit.  The new pump unit to be fitted was a single phase pump unit. We required the assistance of our Electrician colleagues to convert the new pump set to run to single phase.

Special Mention: What makes this job of particular interest is the short timeline. We were initially called to the site on the 18th of the month and submitted a quote for the work and new pump unit on the 19th.  The quote was accepted on the 20th and all the work was completed on the 21st.  This is testament to the incredible work our team in Mechanical and Electrical do day in, day out. HF’s family culture means much more than dates and numbers. It’s quite literally, the core of the business. We consider all of our employees as part of the family and invaluable assets to our ongoing success.
