Community Bikes shipping container project

We are very pleased to have arranged the purchase of a 20ft shipping container from the Library of Things who are moving to Crystal Palace.

We will be refurbishing the container as our public-facing office for our bike-share scheme and other community bike activities.

The container comes with an external living roof and viewing periscope installed by London Wildlife Trust and local volunteers in September 2016, funded by the Western Riverside Environment Fund and Groundwork London to create local pollinator habitat and flood resilience.

So now we just need to insulate the container and add a door to keep out the cold!

We are looking to source insulation materials, with our preference being to insulate the container on the outside using some kind of wood cladding. We will also be adding a consumer unit for electricity.
