Southampton Mail Centre works complete

Works at Southampton Mail Centre have completed after one year on site. The site has had a major transformation over the past year with three extensions constructed, large scale internal demolition to enable installation of new state of the art parcel sorting machines and a full refurbishment to admin and welfare areas.

The project involved complex phasing of the various elements of the work, required to enable the mail operation to continue unhindered. Watson Batty Architects led the process of phasing the works in close discussion with the site operators and the contractor VolkerFitzpatrick.

The Southampton Mail Centre strategy has also seen works undertaken to refurbish Eastleigh Delivery Office and the construction of the new Portsmouth Delivery Office which is currently on site.
