Overview

At Glasgow Science Centre, Turvec designed and installed an open-fronted timber Cubic cycle shelter. The project is complete to the highest standard, with full sedum roof, bike repair station & pump, and two-tier bike parking. Working for Luddon construction, the shelter complements new surrounding landscaping, with the frame powder-coated to match street furniture. The cycle hub will provide user-friendly and high quality parking for visitors to the centre.

What clients have said

Quotes icon

"It would have been so easy to have a bike store and bin shed that did what they were supposed to, but weren’t so great to look at. Ours manage to do their job but also look fantastic too. The design and wooden cladding blend wonderfully into the natural surroundings and link to our lovely new building."

"The new bike hub is an excellent addition to the town. Not only will it help promote the benefits of cycling, but it will also help to establish the town as a destination, promoting its big open spaces, access to the river, canal, and other active travel routes."
