Manufactured off-site and installed and connected to services in less than a day, the Shower Hub creator – Clearspace Buildings - is confident you’ll find nothing else like it in the UK.
To celebrate the launch of the brand new Shower Hub – a standalone shower and changing unit – Clearspace Buildings has partnered with Cyclescheme to give one away*. Valued at £30,000, Clearspace will deliver, install and connect the winner’s Shower Hub to water and power.
The competition is open to any organisation with a minimum of eight employees and the winner will be announced on Cycle to Work Day 2014 on Thursday 4 September.
Designed, manufactured and installed by leading modular construction company, Clearspace Buildings, the standard Shower Hub unit features two shower and change cubicles.
It takes up as little two car parking spaces, providing energy efficient shower and changing facilities on site for all workplace cyclists. And, because they’re modular, Shower Hubs can even be built in confined spaces, like an underground or multi-storey car park.
Shower Hubs can be as small at two units or as large as 70 (or more!) and can be fully integrated into existing cycling facilities to create a Cycle Pit-Stop area, including add-ons such as:
- Clothes drying areas
- Cycle parking
- Repair stations
Energy efficient lighting and superior insulation means the Shower Hub is cost effective to run. Superior, sustainable building materials also ensure it will be a long-term resource for your employees for many years.
As a Cyclescheme customer you could even offset the cost of a Shower Hub with savings made on National Insurance contributions. Better still, your workplace may be eligible for a Local Authority Transport Fund grant to part fund a Shower Hub.

Whether your cycle commute consists of country lanes or busy city roads, you won’t need reminding of the potential hazards of cycling to work, from pot holes to pedestrians.
Battery-powered cars won’t solve the UK’s problems of air pollution, congestion, and obesity. Electrically-assisted pedal cycles could.
One bike is great but more bikes are better. You can enjoy different kinds of cycling and always have a bike in reserve.
