The redevelopment of the existing Waste Transfer Facility to enable the depot to operate with greater efficiency whilst undertaking refurbishment to introduce a new Customer Contact Centre and Hub together with additional office accommodation and welfare facilities for Wyre Forest District Council.
We have approached the refurbishment of the existing buildings with a light touch approach, in order to retain their historic character. External alterations have been kept to a minimum with the only addition being the proposed creation of an entrance canopy to the on the northern elevation of the Customer Contact Centre & Hub to welcome visitors and signify the entrance to the building.
We have sought to further improve the setting of the historic buildings by demolishing the later 1970’s office building from the front of the site to rediscover the relationship between their frontage and Green Street. This also allows the improvement of the public realm at the front of the site with the introduction of new hard and soft landscaping together with additional car parking provision.
At the rear of the site Blocks D & E are proposed to be refurbished to create 5 new light industrial/workshop units for rental in order to enhance provision and create opportunities for local small businesses. The elevational design has sought to enhance and remodel the existing buildings to suite the requirement of the new units whilst unifying their appearance.
