Aurora Contractors was the Construction Manager for the first New York location of XSport Fitness Center in Garden City. The gym provides its members with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. The gym includes a full-service child care center, lap pool, basketball court, full service spa, fitness studios and café. The project features high-end finishes such as hand painted faux finishes, custom glass tile and imported slate and porcelain tile throughout the gym.
This project is located in the basement of the Roosevelt Field Mall, which provided numerous construction and logistical issues. Prior to construction, complete demolition of the existing space was required. For the pool and basketball court to be constructed, structural columns supporting the mall above had to be removed as well as the slab. We then had to excavate 18 feet below grade to install new footing for new, wider column spacing that would allow a full size basketball court and pool to be installed. An extensive shoring plan was developed to provide support for the existing mall’s foundation walls and structure. All of the demo, excavation, and construction was performed while the mall was open, with the nation’s most successful Bloomingdales store located directly overhead. Click here to see video.
Aurora also took painstaking measures to reduce the dust and other airborne debris associated with the demolition. In order to minimize the impact of construction on the existing mall tenants, Aurora kept in direct contact with the surrounding tenants to keep them informed of daily activity, and deliveries.
Aurora also built the 2nd XSport Fitness on Long Island in the Sunrise Mall in Massapequa, NY. This was another challenging renovation in an existing mall that required major infrastructure remodeling to add a basketball court, pool, spa, and multilevel gym.
