The Biggest Bike Shed

The Simon Trust

The Simon Trust is a good example of a very different type of client. A charitable trust doing really important work providing residential accommodation and looking after ten young adults with severe autism and complex needs.

The Brief

We were asked to build a shed which would accommodate a large number of  bicycles and tricycles in two different rooms. They needed two additional spaces – 4 rooms in total, to store cleaning and other outdoor and sporting equipment.



We worked through a number of design iterations with the client before settling on a final option that met all their needs, fit within the available space and worked within the budget.

We built – as we nearly always do – from British Douglas Fir and sent a team of three to install the shed over the course of a week.

The client was delighted!

From larger communal sheds to large numbers of small units, we like to think that whenever the client wants a quality product, we’re perfectly placed to help.
