Cycle parking increasingly becomes major consideration for most building projects due to the vast range of benefits it provides people and society.
Our recent project at the University of the West of England forms part of an integrated city-wide cycling network bringing vast benefits to the City of Bristol.
Getting from A to B by bike has been proven to help people feel happier, be healthier and travel cheaper, and it’s better for the environment. It also helps people be more productive, especially in the workplace or school – creating benefits not just for the cyclist but for employers and education establishments too.
Cycle shelters can not only endorse sustainability through the promotion of cycling but can do so through the structure itself. Timber is becoming increasingly popular as a choice of material because it is one of the most environmentally friendly building materials available, it is very versatile, looks great and is very strong to build with.
Fordingbridge can maximise on space and work within the parameters specified to produce as much cycle parking as needed. Cycle shelters can be open, contained or even locked up and can cater any roof design from mono-pitch, to barrel vault, through to flat roof.
If sustainability is really high on your agenda we have additional options available for you – from FSC and PEFC accredited timber to green roofs that blend into the landscape and promote biodiversity.
