Shard Place Cycle Parking

Shard Place is a 26 storey residential tower being constructed next to The Shard. Constructed by MACE the building will comprise of 176 units with 212 Turvec 2ParkUp two-tier bike spaces with gas-lifting, we are additionally installing accessible parking in the form of conventional Sheffield stands. Turvec are delivering this project in 2020.

 

 

Brentford Community Stadium

Turvec have been contracted to install the external cycle parking at Brentford Community Stadium. We have designed WaveUp shelters to accommodate 186 2ParkUp two-tier spaces in the public realm. Located at Kew Bridge station the development includes 910 apartments and a new 17,500 seater stadium for Brentford Football Club.

Southeastern Cycle Hubs Secured

Turvec have been awarded the contract for the bike parking in the new cycle hubs at Tonbridge and Orpington for Southeastern Railway.

Over 400 bike parking spaces will be installed in the two hubs, with predominantly 2ParkUp two tier racks. The hubs will also incorporate accessible parking stands for non-standard bicycles, creating a fully accessible facility for cycle-rail commuters, this allocation for larger and recumbent style bicycles was an important requirement as a significant number of double-tier racking is being installed. Bike pumps and maintenance stations have been incorporated to provide cyclists with workstations to tune and make repairs to their bicycles, an important consideration for the overall operation of the hub and reduce numbers of abandoned bikes.

The hub at Tonbridge will include our unique E-Bike charging points built into the secure locking bar of the 2ParkUp. Around 2% of all bicycle spaces include a charging facility, the design of the 2ParkUp allows for charging points to be retro-fitted into existing racks, allowing Southeastern to increase numbers and keep up with future demand and the expected growth in e-bikes.

We are excited to be delivering our first cycle-rail projects in partnership with Southeastern, the first phase will be completed late summer 2018.

Christmas Study Tour

The Turvec team visited Copenhagen for our 2017 Christmas party, a great opportunity to get on bikes and explore Danish cycling culture.

Copenhagen has an impressive cycling modal share, 62% choose to cycle to work or university. As part of our trip we cycled across Dronning Louise Bridge at rush-hour, this is one of the busiest cycle routes in the world, over 48,400 bicycles cross every day. An enjoyable end to a successful year, we look forward to 2018!

Turvec moves house

In August we relocated our London base to 4th floor 33 Cannon St. This move marked a major milestone for Turvec moving from our hot-decking base in East London to our own space in the City.

We still have a base in Mid-Wales, and our storage and operations facility continues to be based in Welshpool. Feel free to pop in and see us at our new address!
