Following a successful tender with NHS Lothian, Lockit-safe were instructed to design, fabricate and install new cycle compounds and lockers to increase and improve the cycle parking provision for staff on the hospital site.
Our solution was a combination of cycle compounds and cycle lockers that would increase the number of spaces and also provide additional security and weather protection.
The groundworks were carried out by site contractors who we liaised closely with throughout the project in terms of the placement of the compounds and specification for the bases.
The project included:
3 x 12 cycle lockable compounds
1 x 24 cycle lockable compound
5 x standard cycle lockers
This gave the site 65 cycle parking spaces.
As the site was a busy hospital, dealing with the increased pressures of COVID-19, not only did we need to work COVID-safely, we also had to be sensitive to the surroundings and ensure the minimum of disruption and noise.
The completed installation of the 4 cycle compounds and 5 cycle lockers was completed in just 4 days and our performance has resulted in us winning Stage 2 of this project.
