Back to What We Have Done

Newtown Road

Hove, Sussex

We are delighted to announce that the doors have now opened at the new Natural Fit Brighton and Hove wellness centre.

Commissioned by holistic fitness and leisure company Natural Fit, the new wellness centre is sited within the former St. Agnes Church in Newtown Road, Hove. The contemporary conversion houses the centre’s bespoke gym, spa, fitness studios and health-inspired café facilities over three storeys.

Much of the original church exterior has been preserved, and the sympathetically-designed internal conversion takes advantage of the church’s great architecture. The original Gothic-style leaded light windows provide a unique setting and ambiance for a wellness centre.

One of the key project challenges was installation of the two-storey steel frame within the confines of the project’s historical church setting. This was addressed as part of the design process. Spider cranes were used as their compact size and heavy lifting power is ideal for construction tasks on constricted sites.

Kent Structures was the main contractor on this design and build project.

St. Agnes is one of two new facilities housed within interesting historic buildings that was have engineered for Kent Structures. The Natural Fit Tunbridge Wells facility is sited within a period bank building of architectural significance on Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells. Link to
