Brighton’s new Cycle Station was officially opened in March of 2015. The £1.5m project, funded by the Department for Transport, Southern Trains, Network Rail and Brighton and Hove City Council, now provides over 500 secure cycle parking spaces on the important mainline commuter rail connection to London.
The cycle hub also provides a repair and maintenance workshop, a coffee shop, changing and shower facilities and accessible toilets and even short-term office space.
This was a comprehensive project for MGB Construction having been brought in by one of our long-term contractor partners. A challenging build, the Cycle Station is built into a hill and required extensive groundworks in order to set a firm foundation.
We were responsible for the containing walls, which along with the groundworks needed to be fully re-enforced. The project also involved power caps, shuttering and suspended slabs to extend the structure and all external works including block and slab paving.
“MGB helped us expand our team on site within 24 hours, allowing us a greater resource to accelerate the project. It was key to our success having an already training scalable team to supplement the workforce.”Richard Moffat, Director, Richmond Civil Engineering
“With a challenging schedule it was great to have Marin and his team of experts on hand to work day and weekend shifts to get the job completed.”Aidan Joyce, Senior Project Manager, Mitchellson
“Working with MGB was easy and straightforward. They knew all the regulations and got up to speed with the project almost straight away.”John McNuilty, Senior Project Manager, O’Keefe
