Morgan Sindall Construction was appointed through the Constructing West Midlands (CWM) framework to build the new depot at the former Atlas Works site in Tyseley.

The new depot will enable the council to relocate waste services currently delivered from its Montague Street and Redfern Road depots to one new purpose built 'super' facility. Repairs, maintenance and MOT servicing on the council's fleet of vehicles will be undertaken on site as well as MOTs.

Morgan Sindall Construction is to provide design work from RIBA Stage 4 and all construction works including the creation of new offices, ablution blocks, garages and workshops.

Cllr John O’Shea, Birmingham City Council cabinet member for street scene and parks, said: ‘We recently announced that we are investing £7m into our frontline services to meet a top priority for the people of Birmingham – cleaner, greener, streets.

‘The project shows our commitment to our employees, who work hard all year round to provide one of the few truly universal services the council offers. The effort our staff put in means they deserve first-class facilities to provide a first-class service and this scheme will help us do that.’

Dave Kelly, CWM framework manager at Morgan Sindall Construction, commented: ‘Cleaner, greener streets are integral to sustainable communities. Birmingham City Council’s strategy in this area is progressive, ambitious and will make a real difference to the people living, working and playing in the city region.

‘We’re proud to be delivering this key facility to support the agenda and to be doing so through the Constructing West Midlands framework. CWM’s commitment to eliciting social value across the region twins with our own and we’re delighted to continue our near decade-long tenure on the framework.’
