Local and long-standing client Lymelight Boulevard were totally bowled over by the services of 3r Projects, in their latest leisure venture, Duck Pin Bowling.

The two neighbouring companies have previously worked together renovating retail spaces to create recreational places at the centre. 3r Project’s history of fitting out Go Wild and Reel Games made them the natural refurbishment partner to refit the former pool hall, and totally refresh Lymelight Lanes’ customer experience.

The team set to work relocating the entrance to Lymelight Lanes to be accessed directly from the main thoroughfare, installing a new reception that services attractions over two floors. A fully fitted out commercial kitchen including all plumbing, gas and electrical installation was installed to increase the venue’s opportunity to provide refreshments, extend dwell time and generate income from secondary spend.

A completely new lighting rig was introduced to light up the new Duck Pin bowling lanes, and construction of a bespoke enclosure to house the bowling apparatus all came within the scope of the project. The 20 x 16m space underwent complete redecoration, including fitting new flooring and on-brand colour scheme, incorporating point of sale graphics frames, and quirky signage that encourages customers to “Bowl Em Over Duck!”.

All works were completed in the agreed 12 week timescale and around the opening hours of the upstairs leisure attraction which continued to trade to members of the public during this time.

“Having previously worked with the 3r Projects team we had no hesitation to work with them again on the project. The work was carried out to a high standard of finish and in a safe and considerate manner, which was important given the retail unit was still in use during the project. They went above and beyond agreed specification of works to suggest better and more suitable materials for the ambience of the space, durability and longevity costs.” Comments Michael Roberts, Facility Manager

Outcome: 3r Projects delivered the full scope of the project within the designated 12 weeks, and renovation budget of £140k. Since the opening of the new venture, income for the space has quadrupled.

Sectors 3r work in

3r’s extensive experience extends to delivering building design, fit out and maintenance to wide ranging sectors. Buildings in commercial, leisure, residential, education, civic – prisons, defence and aviation, and industrial – including nuclear and chemical, uses. In recent years, the way we work and live has changed, and we have adapted buildings to accommodate that change. From incorporating home offices into apartments, to reworking retail spaces for recreation, or simply providing greater ventilation and more space to make buildings work in today’s world.

What 3r does

At 3r we reimagine, repurpose and refit buildings, transforming them into places people love to be in.  From ground up new builds, to redundant retail spaces, we re-energise buildings to bring them back into productive use by imaginative architectural and interior design matched by clever construction craftsmanship.

Buildings of every imaginable shape and size, used for every imaginable purpose – homes, offices, shops, restaurants, cinemas and hotels. Every room from kitchens to corridors, conservatories to atriums have received our exacting attention. For us, it’s not just about bricks and mortar but utilising up to date methods that encompass every element of the environment, that makes the difference. 3r’s expertise includes modular installations, electrical, security, fibre, CCTV, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, fire alarm and sprinkler systems. Everything that contributes to creating a contemporary environment, fit for the way people live today.

The 3r story

3r, project manage building works from concept to completion. We bring the hands-on capability too. Our skilled, experienced tradespeople take pride in high quality workmanship and outstanding outcomes.

With over two decades building project management under our belts, we’ve built much more than buildings. We’ve built a reputation for reimagining residential, retail and recreational places that people love to inhabit. This has been achieved through reliability, and through relationships built on strong communication and trust, through every stage of our builds and refurbishments.
