The unit on the Bayton Road Industrial Estate in Exhall, Coventry, operated as a manufacturing/light industrial facility before its purchase by The Wigley Group in 2016.

The unit was initially two converted into one, and was previously home to a company that manufactured metal components for the automotive industry.

Located close to the A444 and M6, the estate offered excellent connectivity to and from the Midlands, making it one of the premier commercial and industrial facilities in the region.

However, the 57,000 sq ft facility was tired and needed full refurbishment to update it to modern standards, and planning approval was obtained by The Wigley Group to convert it into a new trampoline park for tenant Red Kangaroo.

Works began in 2017 to repair and improve the building so it was suitable for its new use, which included structural alterations, overcladding the roof with a specialist liquid roof membrane to waterproof the building, the introduction of fire compartmentation, and relaying and relevelling the floors.

This enabled the fit-out of pre-war steel-framed industrial units of various sizes and heights to create a new trampoline park, equipped with catering facilities and meeting rooms.

A total investment of £1.5 million was pumped into the project and works were complete on a tight deadline to ensure it was ready for the client’s opening date in February 2018.

The unit was let to Red Kangaroo Trampoline Park on a 15-year lease, and helped transform a site with industrial history into a new leisure use and the first of its kind in Coventry and Warwickshire.
