Fordingbridge were approached by the principle contractor, working on a multi-million-pound project at Cambridge University, to provide six cycle shelters as part of their development plans.
In collaboration with the contractor, Fordingbridge utilised the expertise of their in-house design team to create a bespoke solution to include a wildflower green roof system into the cycle shelter design. Consideration was also given to comply with BREEAM specification. BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle.
The cycle shelter has been constructed using galvanised steel and aluminium flashings and rain water goods. While maintenance will be minimal, a man safe system has been incorporated into the design to allow for safe maintenance to take place.
A phased installation was implemented to ensure synchronisation with the contractor’s programme of works. Fordingbridge are experienced in working in collaboration with contractors, keeping to timescales and within budget.
