The plan is to replace the old lights in stages. Essentially, we will be doing this one room at a time. This will lessen the burden of the costs of the new lights, and provide an opportunity to recycle parts from the old lights in maintaining those remaining. We expect that it will take about one year to complete this project.
ZenQuest is also focusing on some other upgrades for the future. We recently installed a new air conditioning system on the east side of the building. After delays due to supply chain and labor force issues we are happy to report that a new system was installed on August 6th. This will greatly improve the cooling in the reception area and men’s locker room, and relieve the stress on the system on the other side of the building.
We are also still perusing the permitting required for expansion of the back training room. The plans for the work have already been completed and we will begin work as soon as the permits are secured. Once that is in place the actual work should only take days to complete.
Essentially, the space between the training rooms that was our fitness room pre-pandemic will become part of the room primarily used for Jiu-jitsu and Thai Kickboxing classes. This is because of the fact that the fitness room was historically under utilized and the growing need for additional training space.
The work will be done in a way that does not disrupt the class schedule at all. Based on the timing of the permits the project will likely be completed some time in October of this year.
