In their bid to create a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of their staff and students, Myton School commissioned A&S Landscape to build a custom-made cycle store. Far from the traditional bike shed, this cycle shelter was designed to fit the footprint of the space available and to provide cover for the maximum number of bikes. Built to last, with galvanised, powder-coated steel finished in red, the school saw the construction as an investment. The end result provided a covered cycle rack with substantial storage capacity, all designed on our curved roof canopy from the Motiva Duo range. The overall design was matched to the colour themes of the school’s emblem, all of which emphasised the bespoke nature of the project. With all bikes protected from the weather, there’s now no excuse for staff and students not to cycle to school! See more about this bike shelter we installed for the Myton School here.
A&S Landscape was kept very busy recently installing not just one canopy, but three at Harborne Primary School. The work included a brand new Cyclo City bike store. In designing a scheme like this with multiple structures, our team worked closely with the staff at Harborne Primary School to make sure that just the right look was achieved. For this project, the bike shelter steelwork was finished in beige grey which matched with the other two canopies that were part of the commission. This attention to detail meant that the structures blended with the school surroundings and did not dominate the rest of the space. There are many benefits to children in cycling to school, not least of all the fact that they find it fun. By offering secure cycle storage, Harborne Primary School are now able to encourage parents to get their children cycling to and from school, safe in the knowledge that their children’s bikes are safely stored away.

Amongst the visions and values of Leavesden Green Primary School is the desire to promote an environment that encourages children to become confident in themselves. Creating a cycle to school culture was one way for them to offer pupils the chance to boost their confidence as well as their sense of independence. When Leavesden Green Primary School decided that they wanted a cycle shelter as part of their aim to encourage more children to cycle, they decided that they would maximise the opportunity. They approached A&S Landscape to build two shelters rather than just the one so that they could offer more children the chance to use the facilities. As a result, two Cyclo City shelters were installed, each providing 14 all-weather bike racks. Each frame was finished in Anthracite Grey and topped with an Opal effect roof. The end result gave a sleek and subtle effect. See more details about the bike store we installed at Leavesden Green Primary School here.
Fairfield Primary School wanted cycle storage that would reflect their modern and progressive ethos. They knew exactly what they wanted when they approached us. The school had done their homework, and they had the assignment clearly set out for us to deliver. They wanted a robust cycle shelter with added protection and security. To reflect this specification, the Cyclo ‘Bike’ option from our product range was installed. The finished result provided a cycle rack for 10 bikes finished in Slate Grey with an Opal effect roof. But with the desire for additional security in mind, we finished the shelter off with mesh panels and a front gate. Fairfield Primary School were able to benefit from the versatility of our Cyclo ‘Bike’ cycle store design which was customised to their exact requirements. Adaptability, durability and security combined to deliver exactly what Fairfield Primary School had wanted, and it was an A+ in their feedback to our team!

St Joseph’s Catholic School might be a smaller than average school, but they still wanted to offer a safe and secure place for students to store their bikes. Lots of secondary school kids buy their own bikes from long-saved pocket money. Some might even depend on their bikes for a paper round, and for them, their bikes are even more important. The school knew that by offering safe bike storage they had a way to encourage more of their students to cycle to school, safe in the knowledge that their bikes would be in a secure cycle store. The option that best met the needs of St Joseph’s Catholic School and the pupils was the Cyclo ‘City’. Finished in Moss Green steelwork and topped with a clear roof, the overall cycle storage capacity was for 20 bikes. Feedback from the school highlighted the professional approach taken by A&S Landscape’s on-site team during the construction phase.

The specialist Science and Mathematics College, Meole Brace Secondary School, required additional cycle storage to meet the increasing demands of both students and teachers. With cycling becoming a popular choice for the journey to school, particularly with the Government incentive of the cycle to work scheme, the college wanted to ensure that bikes could be securely locked away in a robust cycle storage.
A&S Landscape was pleased to be called in to deliver the entire project. This included the initial discussion around choosing the most suitable site to house the bike store, as well as exploring their different options in relation to their budget. The cycle storage had two requirements, it had to have substantial storage capacity and it must be highly secure. Once the decision was finalised, A&S Landscape orchestrated all of the logistics of the project, coordinating contractors, and much of the manual work too, including the removal of the concrete base works, and the cycle storage installation. The final shelter was to be long-lasting, durable, but most importantly, act as an active encouragement for students and teachers to ride their bike to school.
Once a site was chosen, A&S Landscape took on the challenge of designing (quite possibly) the most robust cycle store ever! With a heavy galvanised section, and a strong mesh front and gate, together with an unbreakable sturdy polycarbonate roof and sides, the shelter provides exceptional security. It became so popular, that no sooner was it built, the school required an extension! Thankfully the clever modular design allowed for this, and a straightforward extension was added to accommodate 20 extra cycles.
It goes without saying that the secure covered cycle rack was extremely popular. There is now very little worry for students when leaving their treasured bike while they attend classes. This is true for teachers too. Especially now that high price-tag electric bikes are commonplace, a secure cycle store was a vital addition to the make-up of the school. Clearly, the bike rack has encouraged more people to take up cycling, with the need for extra cycle spaces, and this can only be a good thing for the physical and mental health of the students and teachers.
“We are extremely impressed with the quality and design of the two cycle shelters that A&S Landscape installed. A&S Landscape not only provided a competitive quotation for our original specification but also worked with us to improve the designs and ensure we got the best value within our budget. We really appreciated their flexible approach – amending the specification to best suit our requirements and scheduling the works to fit in with our fund-raising efforts and school breaks. The construction team were professional, and the polycarbonate appears superior to that used previously at the school. We look forward to working with A&S Landscape on similar projects in the future.”
