Challenge

Incorporating street furniture and general landscaping into a new design is easy on sites with lots of open space, but what about sites that are a little more compact? This was the issue faced at Clive Court, a prestigious apartment building in Maida Vale, London.

The residents of Clive Court had a problem with cycle parking around the site. As a result, the Property Managers for the area, True Associates Limited, contacted AUTOPA to see if they could resolve the issues being faced.

Although installing a cycle shelter would normally not have caused any issues for the experienced staff at AUTOPA, at Clive Court the size of the site coupled with the lack of access made the installation challenging. The area designated for the cycle storage was very tight and the location of manholes, underground services and access doors complicated the situation further.

Solution

AUTOPA's highly knowledgeable installation team visited the site to get a first-hand understanding of the requirements, enabling the company to create the best solution for the customer. The site's confined nature meant that space was at a real premium so any solution proposed needed to maximise all the space available.

Thanks to AUTOPA's vast product range, this problem was easily rectified with the VELOPA Type B Cycle Rack. Unlike other cycle racks, Type B is designed specifically for high density cycle parking within a limited space. The single-sided rack fits against a wall or a shelter while the alternating high and low cycle holders reduce the space required in between the bikes from 500mm to a mere 305mm. It is also fully compatible with any of the company's VELOPA cycle shelters.

Outcome

Type B cycle racks were perfect for the site and the AUTOPA solution met all of the customer's requirements. Within 3 weeks of the order being placed Clive Court's made-to-measure cycle shelter, complete with parking for 24 bicycles, was installed.
