Cycling Facilities - St Martins Centre

Postby Speedster » Thu Jun 14, 2012 11:45 pm

Moving office in a couple of weeks to Dwyer Durack House, part of the St Martins Centre complex (40-50 St Georges Tce). Their website says "Showers and bike storage" under the facilities page.

Does anyone here work in DDH, St Martin's Tower or NAB House and ride in? I worked in SMT about 10 years ago, the "bike storage" was a triangle rack next to the car park attendant booth. Anyone could walk down the ramp and take off with a bike. The showers weren't too fantastic then either, but maybe they've had a refit. Can't find out until I'm there!

What I'd really like is:
- somewhere I can securely lock up my bike (to a rack in a caged area)
- store several days worth of clean work clothes hanging, i.e. a locker (commute is 30km each way, travel as light as possible)
- shower

If it's the same as 10 years ago, it would be
- secure bike in basement
- climb stairs from basement, walk across to DDH (no sheltered walkway), up to office to get clothes
- down to ground, walk back to SMT, down to basement for shower
- back up to office via step 2

Not very convenient! Do any end of trip facilities exist as above that are available? Or will I be resigned to PT as cycle commuting will be impractical.

Hi I was wondering if you are now working in this centre what are the facilities like? Are they as you had hoped and been upgraded? I may be looking at working in this building in the future and was hopeful that the bike facilities are good. Thanks

Why the interest in the NAB building? Will you have access to that? I work in Ennex 100 which is what I think you refer to as the NAB building (it has a NAB sign on top and branch at street level). I enjoy outstanding end of trip facilities for my daily commute. 2 levels of secure bike storage, change rooms and showers that are maintained and a drying/ironing room.
