BIKE PARKING FACILITY
O3 BUSINESS CAMPUS KRAKÓW

185 bicycles on the area of 200 m2

BICYCLE STORAGE FACILITY FOR ECHO INVESTMENT

Together with the team of Echo Investment we commissioned in June 2018 a bike storage facility that can house as many as 185 bikes on the area of 200 m2! The bike storage facility was created at Opolska Business Park, an 11-storey development at 29 listopada street in Kraków.

Similarly to other cities, Kraków invests in development of bicycle infrastructure. The dramatic increase in number of cyclists is also felt by developer and managers of commercial real estate, for whom creation of bike parking facilities becomes practically a requirement stated by their lessees.

HOW DID WE MANAGE TO FIT SO MANY BIKES WITHIN SUCH A LITTLE AREA?

In normal storage conditions, one bike takes about 2 m2. Taking into account the area we had at our disposal at O3, that is, 200 m2, the objective consisting in finding space for over 150 bicycles would have been impossible to meet if we had used standard solutions. The traditional bike stands are inefficient in modern buildings, as they take up too much space and installing them too densely makes them unergonomic.

The room we had at our disposal and the project guidelines made it impossible for use to use the automatic BikeUp lifters, which forced us to develop a completely new solution – the Twist wall bike rack, enabling even greater space savings on a small area.

In order not to lose any ergonomics in everyday use, we applied a prefabricated supporting structure, creating mesh “racks” for bike storage.

WE SAY “NO” TO GREY, BORING PARKING FACILITIES!

The bike parking facility created for Echo Investments is more than just bike hangers, similarly to every other implementation carried out by Bike2Box. We care for every implementation to become an element of a coherent strategy that promotes environmentally friendly solutions and employee friendly workplaces. For the purposes of this project we created special graphics providing the bike storage facility with an individual character reflecting the values promoted by the company.
