Nicol Thomas Architects

Royal Mail Delivery Office

This site sits within Blue Ribbon (formerly Edgwick Industrial Estate) between Foleshill Road and Phoenix Way and in close proximity to Coventry Canal.

The Masterplan provided a mixed use development comprising warehousing, bulky goods retail, food retail, industrial and hotel use.  Key to the development was the relocation of Royal Mail.  Nicol Thomas was commissioned to design the Masterplan, and to design and deliver the Royal Mail Depot.

This required new infrastructure to enable a through road with 24 hour access and improved access from Foleshill Road to Phoenix Way whilst maintaining access to adjacent industrial premises.

The building is over 17,000 sq.ft in a steel frame to provide a clear span, and is clad in profiled cladding in Royal Mail livery.  15% natural daylight was achieved through rooflights to meet the client brief.
