Exceed Physical Culture

About this project

Exceed Physical Culture is a full service, high end boutique gym that caters to private training and independent trainers.  ABA created a 5400 sf training facility for Exceed located on three levels in the historic building at 97 Reade Street in the Tribeca Historic District in Manhattan.  Our work included a complete gut rehab of the existing space (previously a grocery) on the 1st floor, cellar, and subcellar, new locker rooms and bathing facilities, class rooms, training rooms, and back-of-house support areas.  The existing building structure was reinforced and a new acoustically isolated floating slab and acoustically isolated walls and ceilings were constructed on the entire 1st floor space to prevent impact noise and vibrations from migrating through the historic building structure.  A new steel horizontal latticework was custom fabricated and engineered for use by an entire workout class during strength training exercises.  Our office also assisted with filing the special approval from the Board of Standards and Appeals for a special permit to allow the Physical Culture Establishment use in this location.
