High-quality mail processing centres

We have designed a range of automated processing centres for Royal Mail across the UK. They present particular challenges because of their size and the different activities that take place within. In contrast to the sorting halls there is a range of administration and support accommodation that needs to be incorporated.

The buildings range from 12,500sqm to 30,000sqm and are often sited in difficult locations, for example on contaminated brownfield land. Vehicle movements around the mail centres are very intensive, requiring careful traffic management planning. In line with Royal Mail’s requirements the buildings are of high quality and perform well in terms of sustainability.
