10k Square Foot Gym


Got an rfp on a gym. I haven't done a space this big before. What should I be aware of?

Talked to one of my suppliers who suggested a sub who has the riding sander equipment and some masking machines to do the lining properly.

My main question is where do you get 220 in typical sports facility; mechanical room?

Was a cushion floor spec'd out?

Did you do a moisture test on the slab?

220v should be and is usually readily available inside the gym or if need be from a mech room. If not in the gym how far away is it & who will supply wire & install it?

If you haven't done a job that size before I'd reccommend getting someone who has to work with you.

Sub the lines out. Unbelievable how fast a guy can do it.

Generator. People may be able to get lucky and hook into 220, but the distances can be great and/or become greater. If you're going to rent a machine, rent a generator also and maybe get a better deal for all.

Re: 10k Square Foot Gym


if there already isnt a date, request a walk through before bidding..these questions will then be answered..

do not run machines on a generator..doubt you will even find one capable of that load.

its a public job, the budges are big, but competitive..

factor accordingly..

HS/College gym much harder..nice to get your feet wet on elementary schools where things are not as crucial..good way to learn line painting.

Should be a 220v nearby. Idealy a sparky could come in and add a pigtail from the box with a plug on it or a jct box with with a plug. He'll add a breaker or disconnect something not needed.

You can also visit the premises and talk to the maint guy and look around.

Re: 10k Square Foot Gym


When doing a gym punch all 4 corners first before sanding a gym a booster box is always a good thing less strain on sander mortor, and SUB your lines/logo out to some one who has done this before . be careful on buffing maple floor under them lights finner grit better. if grit to rough swirly marks EEK!! best of luck. tom wentzwood Phoenix Arizona

Re: 10k Square Foot Gym


I decided to toss this one to a fellow competitor for some good will and a kickback if he lands the job.
