Meadowhall Bicycle Hub Building – Sheffield
British Land and Norges
Meadowhall Shopping Centre, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Bowman Riley Interiors was appointed by British Land to provide concept design proposals for a bicycle hub building.
The building will be situated adjacent to Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield. The shopping centre needs to cater for increasing numbers of staff and customers travelling by bicycle.
The requirement was for an 80 capacity secure bicycle store with associated WC, shower and locker facilities along with a small shop and workshop facility. The design concepts were presented to Meadow Hall’s management team, Sheffield City Council and Russell’s Cycles, as the retail tenant. Following briefing and research, we developed three distinct design concepts addressing each aspect of the brief using 3D concept modelling. Security, sustainability and flexibility were key drivers from the brief. We explored options to construct the building using traditional, hybrid and modular methods of construction.
We provided costs and logistic solutions for each option. The project anticipated to shortly move onto the planning stage and procurement with CBRE acting as project managers .
