The Delivery Office sorts mail into the individual routes for the final stage of the delivery process. The new Portsmouth Delivery Office includes Walk Sequencing Machines which speed up the sorting process.
The old Portsmouth Delivery Office wass located within Portsmouth Mail Centre which was a building not fit for purpose. 140 Postal routes have been relocated as part of the project. The replacement Delivery Office, which sorts Mail for the Portsmouth postcode, is the latest project Watson Batty Architects has completed for long term client the Royal Mail Group.
