H-B Designs have designed and installed Bristol’s first secure cycle parking facility – utilising H-B’s unique Advanced Cycle Compact Parking, (ACCP) and locker system to facilitate 57 cyclists.
Prologue Works in Central Bristol commissioned H-B Designs to create the mission critical cycle hub that would be the cycle-centric heart of the newly refurbished 8 floor office building.
A core part of this brief was to make a substantial change to the entire building design to encourage in excess of 30% of staff working at the site to cycle to work by providing a next generation secure cycle parking facility with added benefits.
ACCPcorp is a high density, bicycle caring parking system with retracting locking arm and patented softdock® technology which eliminates metal to metal contact and maximises use of floor space.
ACCPlockers are stacked directly on top of the ACCPCorp units to maximise space and Prologue Works have upgraded to include fully ventilated air drying lockers providing clever drying facilities for any damp commuter gear and ample storage for helmet, shoes, jacket etc.
The state of the art cycle hub has 49 cycle parking spaces and 4 electric bike charging points, phase 2 will add an additional 9 spaces, 2 Brompton Bike Hire Bases and a repair with pump station.
To ensure best practice cycle hub security, H-B installed CCTV, a Net2 Entry system, slow-close cyclist friendly door and completed a meet and greet hand over for building occupiers.
