Moreton shelter; Deacon shelter
Sybil Andrews Academy is a multi-million pound academy located just north of Bury St Edmunds in an attractive, university-style campus.
Bailey Streetscene was asked to design, manufacture, and install cycle parking facilities in 2 areas of the new development. Both areas required different designs for housing bikes.
The Moreton gullwing shelter and Deacon cycle shelter were selected for this project. Two seperate designs of cycle shelter were chosen to suit the two different areas that had unique challenges.
The first area had issues regarding restrictions on boundary lines with adjoining areas of the site along with varying ground levels. The Moreton gullwing double-sided shelter was chosen to be placed in straight banks, creating a uniformed and well thought out area which made maximum use of the space available.
The second area also had multiple varying ground levels. The design comprised a fully covered shelter of 168m2, in the style of the Deacon bin store, which can also be used as a cycle compound.
The varying ground levels were an aspect of the site that could not be changed. To overcome this the products were modified during the initial design stage to allow the problem to be eliminated at the installation stage. Bailey Streetscene worked with the client to make the necessary changes.
Once the designs has been approved, the products were manufactured and installed on site by Bailey Streetscene, all within a tight schedule, in order to allow the school to open for the intake of students in the new academic year.
The school now has the facility for over 400 cycle parking spaces that are covered and secure, with modern designs that complement the school campus.
