The new 18,000 sq ft facility is being constructed on a two-acre brownfield site which was formerly part of the Stanley Brick Works at Bermuda.
There have been commercial operations carried out on the site since the late 1800s and this represents the next evolution of the site.
Deeley Group holds a long leasehold interest in the land from freeholder Arbury Estate and the completed development will be retained in its investment portfolio. Royal Mail has signed a 20-year lease on the depot and sorting office.
Deeley Group will build the development to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard, an industry measure which recognises the sustainable credentials of a building.
The depot and sorting office will feature an extensive yard and car-parking, with 60 spaces for staff and customers, including two electric vehicle charging bays. A total of 53 commercial vehicle spaces, including 28 electric vehicle charging points, will be available for Royal Mail’s new fleet of electric vehicles.
Works on the Royal Mail sorting office involve the construction of the shell, a partial fitout and and externals. Deeley are providing the blockwork structures, with toilets, canteens, office areas etc. with the sorting Hull being finished by Royal Mail.
