Planet Fitness has partnered with Poettker Construction on three health fitness clubs located throughout the greater St. Louis area in 2020. Poettker served as the construction manager for the Festus, Washington and Ballwin, Missouri, locations, which opened to members in time for the new year.
The Festus and Washington locations each feature a new two-story ground-up prototype with a gross floor area of 30,000 square feet, allowing ample space for hundreds of machines and free weights.
Construction for the Ballwin location, which opened in late November 2020, consisted of converting a vacant 30,000-square-foot retail store into an upscale new fitness center. These new locations mark the 10th Planet Fitness location Poettker has collaborated on since 2015 with three new buildings and seven tenant fit-outs.
“Having Planet Fitness as a client has been amazing. These facilities allow us to showcase the quality of work that Poettker Construction can accomplish,” states Keith Poettker, president of Poettker Construction Company. “We are excited to have Planet Fitness as our partner.”
Planet Fitness and Poettker Construction already have plans for several more facilities to break ground in 2021. Poettker Construction has played a key role in site selection and evaluation, making sure the potential location works within the budget and fits overall constructability.
Planet Fitness currently operates 16 locations throughout the St. Louis area.
