The scheme which includes a new 5,100 sq.m Delivery Office, Vehicle Service Centre and multi deck car park is due to start on site next month with a completion set for May 2017.
The project will replace the existing facilities which are just under a mile away in Vauxhall and will provide new space for over 100 postal routes and associated letter sorting machines.
Watson Batty Architects are working on behalf of the successful contractor VolkerFitzpatrick who were appointed after a two stage tendering process. The project is a continuation of both parties long standing relationship with Royal Mail.
The project will be constructed to BREAAM Excellent standard. The project uses different materials from grey brick, high pressure laminate and Trespa cladding to break up the mass of the building.
