Royal Mail, Nine Elms Lane
Royal Mail Group & M3 Consulting
Southwark, London SW8
Location & Overview
The site was owned by the Royal Mail Group and used as one of the main sorting and distribution offices serving the West London area. Previously part of a former gas works, constructed around 1930, left a legacy of high concentrations of contamination within the soils, requiring an additional remediation package of works. The main building was constructed from a heavily reinforced concrete frame with solid floor slabs, with the single storey postal sorting area being a light-weight modular steel framed structure clad with aluminium panels.
