VolkerFitzpatrick to build new Royal Mail Delivery Office

VolkerFitzpatrick has been appointed by Royal Mail to design and build a new Delivery Office and Vehicle Services Workshop in Nine Elms, London following a competitive two stage tender.


Having been successful in the first stage tender, we were awarded a 15-week contract to develop the design and cost plan during the second stage.

The final proposals for the new build office were accepted by Royal Mail and the project will hit the ground running and will be onsite in March.

This project is located in Nine Elms, London SW8. Royal Mail announced in 2014 that it planned to relocate its Nine Elms delivery office to a new site approximately two-thirds of a mile from its existing site in Vauxhall.

Works undertaken by the Special Projects Division of VolkerFitzpatrick involve demolition of existing buildings before constructing a new 55,000ft2 delivery office and 67,000ft2 multi-storey car park.

Construction of the two storey delivery office uses a series of steel portal frame clad with a mixture of grey brickwork and Trespa panels to the top levels.

The three storey car park will be built of structural steel frame with high pressure laminate panels and features a removable top deck.

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.”

The project is due for completion in May 2017 and will achieve BREEAM Excellent.
