Office buildings built with basement storage provide an ideal solution for dedicated workplace cycle parking and active travel facilities for tenants.
While there is the natural benefit of security and cover, the value of having a well designed active travel facility can’t be overstated. Helping future proof the building, and therefore continuing to attract new tenants for developers is vital.
That’s because as active travel take-up rapidly increases, employees are looking for–and demanding–improved End-of-Trip facilities.
Businesses, too, are recognising the benefit of active travel promoting a healthier and more productive workforce. Proper facilities help encourage that active travel take up.
To get the maximum benefit from basement space, you’ll need to consider:
- Meeting capacity requirements
- Integrating cycling with other active travel facilities
- Creating a welcoming environment
