Project Breakdown

This 25,000sqm automated letter sorting facility required the design of a large, heavily serviced and highly secure building, incorporating fully mechanised sorting hall, offices, high quality amenity areas and a road transport workshop. The building sorts all the mail for the whole of Northern Ireland. This was the first project in the world to use site roll single length roof sheets over 110m long.
