Morgan Sindall has been appointed to build a waste services depot for Birmingham City Council in Tyseley.
A £12 million project has been suggested in order to improve their waste management services.
They plan to combine two depots from Montague Street and Redfern Road to create a single mega waste facility. This will consist of a vehicle workshop and a 2-story office block too.
Repairs, maintenance, and mot servicing will be carried out in the depot for both council-owned and public-owned vehicles. Along with this, the waste depot will provide training facilities and serve as a base for crews to serve from.
As well as that, Birmingham council has recently invested £7.2 million. With this, they provided a large amount of ‘mobile’ household waste and recycling centres as well as other appropriate projects to reduce the chances of fly-tipping in the area.
The original plans were put forward in October of 2021 when they announced the site’s opening date to be mid-September 2022. However, due to the pandemic, the project was delayed and no new date has been published.
Morgan Sindall, the construction company, was awarded the contract through Constructing West Midlands (CWM) framework.
The company will also have assistance from the council-owned building service consultant Acivico.
Sindall will carry out all construction-based work for the depot including but not limited to building the offices, ablution blocks, garages, and workshops.
