Secure Buggy Store at Blakenhall Contact Centre in Wolverhampton

Posted on 03/04/2020

Blakenhall Family Centre
Blakenhall Contact Centre wanted to offer the patients and visitors a secure and covered area where they could love their buggies. As a cost-effective option, the team chose to install a small shelter from A&S Landscape.

What was the project?

To install a covered and lockable buggy store at Blakenhall Contact Centre in Wolverhampton.

What product did we use?

We used our Cyclo Buggy design, our space-efficient model. The store features a curved roof, solid steel framework and unbreakable polycarbonate side panels and roof. Because this is a modular system, we can make the structure to any size.

What was the problem?

Blakenhall Contact Centre in Wolverhampton didn’t have a suitable space where the visitors could leave their pushchairs safely and securely. A&S Landscape was asked to design and install the buggy store at the healthcare site.

What was our solution?

One Cyclo Buggy was installed outside of the centre, measuring 3.5m x 2.4m. The structure features black steelwork, which matches the fencing near the store. Clear polycarbonate is used on both on the side panels and roof.

What was the result?

The staff at Blakenhall Contact Centre are very happy with the new secure pram storage. It has saved valuable space inside the reception and waiting area, as visitors can leave their buggies outside. Because the doors can be closed and locked, people are happy to leave their pushchairs outside knowing they won’t be damaged by the weather either.

A little bit about the client…

Blakenhall Contact Centre is located in the city of Wolverhampton, in the West Midlands. The site offers a range of social welfare and meditation services. Families often visit the centre, bringing along young children for check-ups. To improve the patient’s experience, the staff wanted to add a dedicated area where parents and carers could leave their buggy securely.

The staff were fantastic to work with, they were engaged and enthusiastic throughout the process. It was great to collaborate with such a great organisation and know that our work would go to make the centre even better for the visitors.

What is a secure buggy store?

Our Cyclo Buggy store is made with steel framework and polycarbonate roofing and side panels. To make the structure secure, we can add a padlock system or a coded gate lock. This will give you the peace-of-mind that the buggies stored will be safe and protected. Alternatively, bikes and outside play equipment could also be kept in the pram store too.

How can our canopies be used in healthcare sites?

From covered walkways at care homes to shaded seating areas at hospitals, our canopies, shade sails and shelters can be used for a variety of applications in the healthcare industry. We’ve worked with a range of organisations, including the NHS, to improve patient and staff facilities across the UK.

On larger sites, our straight roof canopies could be the ideal solution to create a pathway from the car park to the building entrance. We also have a range of rapid deployment systems, which are ideal for creating shelters for ambulances and other emergency vehicles.

Our robust cycle stores also provide storage for patients, visitors and staff bicycles, keeping them dry and secure throughout the day. Our canopies could also be used as a smoking shelter, creating a designated area on the healthcare site.

The Maxima range of fabric canopies can create a valuable covered area for your patients and staff to spend time outside. This can have many benefits on your patient’s mental health and wellbeing and will also help to make your outdoor space more accessible.
