BREEAM Cycle Storage
The BREEAM sustainability scheme is targeted at new and refurbished commercial properties, not just in the UK, but around the world. There are a number of factors which contribute to receiving your BREEAM rating and amongst these, are suitable cycle storage facilities. Read More
To earn BREEAM accreditation, assessors will evaluate the cycle shelters and cycle storage available, which of course could encourage people to bike to work – rather than commute by car. In fact, two of the nine points available under the transport section of BREEAM are attributed to cycle storage compliance.
However, not every bicycle storage facility will comply with BREEAM. The good news is though, all shelters and storage offered at The Bike Storage Company can meet the stringent regulations.
Criteria for cycle storage to meet BREEAM compliance, includes:
- • Sufficient secure cycle storage spaces for the number of people in the building, or use of the property. See the official BREEAM website for a full breakdown per occupant.
- • The storage must be protected from weather.
- • Bikes can be secured in their individual spaces. For BREEAM compliance, both the frame and wheels must be able to be secured to the rack, floor or wall.
- • Expertise on large scale projects such as The Shard and Canary Wharf.
- • The rack or shelter will be fixed to a permanent structure.
- • There should be a gap wide enough between each space to allow for bike access and storage.
- • The storage can be viewed or overlooked from an occupied building.
- • Controlled lighting is available. You can find full details on the BREEAM hea 01 Visual Comfort criteria here.
- • The storage is located within 100 meters of the property.
