JCW Acoustic Flooring installed the JCW Acoustic Cradle system to replace the existing raised floor which was damaged in severe flooding. The Acoustic Cradle and Batten Systems are the ideal solution for levelling uneven subfloors and can accommodate levels varying from 55mm to in excess of 300mm. As the health club needed the gym up and running as soon as possible, time was really of the essence on this project. JCW Acoustic Flooring worked on the 1200m2 project continuously for 19 days solid to ensure the swift ensure the swift completion of the acoustic floor.

The David Lloyd health and fitness centre in Aberdeen’s flood hit Garthdee suffered major damage and was forced to temporarily close after ‘Storm Frank’ caused devastation across the North East of Scotland.

The floods which caused several other local businesses to close occurred after ‘Storm Frank’ brought gales and heavy rainfall to western parts of the UK and Northwest Scotland with gusts as high as 85 mph. At the height of the flooding in Garthdee, the water rose up above the crossbars of the goals on local football pitches.

Water was seen bursting from the David Lloyd gym into the car park and causing damage to parked cars. The following day after emergency services had drained away the water, several cars could be seen piled on top of each other with windows and doors shattered.

David Lloyd have recently invested £4 million into the club to deliver a better experience for their members. The investment will include state of the art gym equipment, new exercise studios, a new steam room and a café.
