In 2014, Royal Mail announced plans to relocate its Nine Elms delivery office to a new site approximately two-thirds of a mile from the existing site in Vauxhall.

Following a competitive two-stage tender, VolkerFitzpatrick has been appointed by Royal Mail to design and build the new delivery office and vehicle workshop.

The work will involve the demolition of existing buildings before constructing a 55,000 sq ft delivery office which is designed to be of BREEAM Excellent standard. In addition, a 67,000 sq ft multi-storey car park will be constructed.

Mark Phillips, VolkerFitzpatrick special projects operational director, said: “This latest project continues a 16-year relationship VolkerFitzpatrick have with Royal Mail. During the two-stage process we worked hard on delivering all Royal Mail’s targets ensuring they Experienced Excellence – this level of commitment will continue throughout delivery.”

Construction is due to begin next month and reach completion by May 2017.
