Brompton Bicycle

Client Background

Brompton Bicycle is the designer and manufacturer of the iconic folding bike. The unique Brompton folding bike was designed  and built in London in 1975 by Andrew Ritchie in his flat in South Kensington opposite the Brompton Oratory. Still made in London today, Brompton is making over 45,000 bikes per year and is the UK’s largest bike manufacturer.

Points of note

The ultimate goal of the project was to ensure that the new office meets the key values of Brompton Bicycle: Innovation, Quality & British. We constructed a mezzanine floor which contains a viewing gallery to allow tour groups to have an unrivalled perspective across the factory floor and Brompton’s unique  assembly processes. In addition to the factory floor; Maris have designed a new 60-person canteen, open-plan collaborative design studio, a tech-support area and a retail store/ museum.

The new location at 1 Greenford Park now provides an agile adaptable working space to meet the company’s needs and is scalable to meet the future growth plans. The British manufacturer aims to make 100,000 bikes a year by 2021, so the move to their new 86,000 sq ft plant in Greenford, west London is perfect, being nearly twice the size of their old base in nearby Brentford.
