F&S Indoor Bike Parking (Cancelled)
The Facility Standards for campus do not permit bicycles to be brought into buildings. This is due to the impact on maintenance required for interior spaces when bicycles are brought into hallways, stairwells, and individual rooms. However, there is a need for sheltered bicycle parking during winter months. Therefore, F&S has worked to design a prototype indoor bike parking system. The preliminary design shows that some interior spaces can be retrofitted to include indoor bike parking. These spaces must be approved by the Architecture Review Committee, and they must follow all safety and security standards. The preliminary design at F&S is ready to be implemented this year. Once it is in place, the design can be evaluated for additional installations in other campus facilitites.
