Over 400 Cycle Parking Spaces Provided in The Post Building, London
The Post Building, built in the 1960’s, was formerly a Royal Mail Sorting Office. Situated on an island block between New Oxford Street, High Holborn and Museum Street, in the West End of London, the building had been left derelict for over 20 years. It has now been redeveloped into an inspiring mixed space with office, residential, retail and community uses.
Laing O’Rourke was the main contractor involved in the regeneration of The Post Building – a joint venture development by Oxford Properties and Brockton Capital. Cycle-Works worked closely with the designers of the redevelopment, AHMM Architects, on the cycle solutions and layout of the space.
Cycle Parking Racks
The lower-ground floor of The Post Building provides over 400 cycle spaces for workers and residents. Cycle-Works supplied and installed over 340 space efficient Josta® 2-Tier Cycle Racks. These robust racks have a patented holding device, which prevents bikes rolling back, making them extremely safe and easy to use.
Folding Bike Lockers
The installation team fitted 30 3-tier bike lockers that are suitable for Bromptons and similar folding bikes. Made from pre-galvanised steel, they are very durable. The seven stainless steel locking elements fasten the central core to the outer body, making these lockers highly secure. The client chose a white and grey powder coated finish.
Bike Stands & Rounded A Racks
We also installed 50 sturdy bike stands, including Sheffield Stands and Rounded A Racks, as well wall bars for spare D-locks & chains.
Sustainability Built In
Sustainability was a key consideration in the project’s redevelopment and we hope that by providing secure cycle parking, more workers and residents will chose active, green travel to get to and from this modern workspace.
