Spring Grove Case Study

Doing R Bit were delighted to be commissioned to work with Spring Grove Primary School.  

They were looking to support active travel to and from school by ensuring they had suitable facilities to securely park their bikes and scooters. Using sustainably sourced timber, Doing R Bit created a bike shelter with additional scooter parking.

By using sustainable timber and renewable energy in the manufacturing process and limiting the use of steel we minimise our environmental impact compared to the more ‘traditional’ cycle shelter, and with the added bonus of a living green roof helping to remove air pollutants and encourage biodiversity it becomes something more than just somewhere to park a bike!

“Thank you so very much Dave and team! Our bike/scooter shed looks amazing and the children are loving putting their bikes and scooters in there.” said Michelle Hambrier. Pupil Voice Lead. Spring Grove Primary School. Feltham, London.

The shelter, equipped with traditional Sheffield Stands and sliding gates allows pupil’s bikes to be locked securely.

Externally a scooter rack offers ample storage space for the pool of scooters that make the trip to school each day. 

“From the very beginning Dave was friendly and professional, sharing his ideas with what would work best for our school and our needs.” 


Dave Spencer, Director of Doing R Bit said: “We are delighted to work on projects such as this one at Spring Grove Primary School. It is great to see so many pupils using active travel to and from school and doing their bit for the environment.”

“We take great care in offering a solution that considers the environmental impact of our projects and we look forward to seeing the shelter being used for years to come.” 

“During construction our Site Manger Jon said that the Doing R Bit team were friendly, professional, tidy and extremely cooperative. Great job and a massive thank you from us all.”
