Bristol City Council awarded a design and construction project for a Pump track facility in a park to the Velosolutions following a competitive tender. The site's natural slope and proximity to residents' houses required careful planning. Engaging with the local community, particularly in the deprived area of Hartcliffe, posed challenges, including security concerns. Despite facing setbacks like equipment damage and theft during construction, the team persevered, building a strong rapport with residents who supported site protection. The project not only successfully delivered a well-loved pump track but also contributed £100,547 in social value by engaging in local community projects, hiring local staff, and sourcing materials from nearby suppliers.
