Cyclepods was asked by Brighton and Sussex University to provide cycle parking for its brand new Northfield student accommodation campus. Space with which to store bikes was limited and required an innovative solution which also had to suit the conservation area within which it was to be placed.
The storage had to provide adequate security for bicycles whilst fitting in with the ecological ethos of the University. Sustainability of products was an issue for them and required the use of recyclable and recycled materials where possible.
The solution was to place 60 Cyclepods throughout the new Northfield Campus providing 480 bicycles with secure and sustainable cycle parking. Each building has 6 Cyclepods that give residents 48 cycle parking spaces. Each pod is made with recyclable material, meeting the University’s ecological requirements whilst providing tough and robust solution.
