RCE services were contacted by Burhill Group, a large leisure company owned by Guiness, to complete a large fit-out in Milton Keynes. The project, Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf, would be a new addition to one of several adventure venues across the UK with a fantasy mini-golf theme.
The site was a set of commercial units – formerly a gym – within a leisure complex located in Milton Keynes theatre district. RCE Services brief was to completely transform the venue from its current dilapidated state into an amazonian jungle, complete with restaurant, bar and reception area. The entire fit out was to be completed within 8 weeks.
At RCE services we understand the importance of delivering projects on time and within budget. We have a reputation for delivering quick turnaround on high pressure jobs with time constraints, so for us, this limited timeframe wasn’t a problem.
As the units were formerly used as a gym, the first stage of the contract was to strip out the old fitting including flooring, walls and electrical systems, bringing the unit back to a shell.
Once the unit was back to its original state, we began the job of fitting out the interior. This involved installing partitioning walls, ceilings, flooring, electrical installation, air conditioning, plumbing, commercial kitchen installation, golf course build and decor and finishing touches.
Burhill’s adventure venues are known for their extravagant and playful interiors. In keeping with the Lost World theme, we created a magical underground rainforest cave housing their stunning mini-golf course. We did this by taking a formerly unused space within the unit in which we prepared and created sprayed concrete rock work and features, mowed load lightings, a tiger dimming system, colour style programming and DMX special effects control.
As RCE has a technical services background we are able to deliver the highest levels of in-house service integration and this fit out was a perfect example. We ensured complete integration of all systems including lighting, electrical features, audio and ventilation.
With one central control switch for everything, all systems within the building were pre-set meaning no input from staff was needed.This ensured all Mr Mulligan’s staff could open up and close down the venue quickly and efficiently, saving valuable time for the business.
During the project, we had to consider that the unit was next to a huge theatre in Milton Keynes, so making noise as certain times would have caused disruption for surrounding businesses. To avoid this, we completed any work likely to cause noise outside business hours and ensured that deliveries and removals were timed accordingly.
After a personal thank you from the the CEO of Burhill Group on the opening night of Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf, we are looking forward to working on their next projects in Birmingham and Bournemouth.
