Royal Mail Group, nationwide

RPS CgMs have been advising Royal Mail Group Property for over five years on their property portfolio. This ranges from advising on the asset management of individual post offices to local delivery offices to major mail and distribution centres.

Royal Mail are a major employer with a unique set of requirements in terms of their operational buildings. Their large mail centres and regional distribution hubs need to be located with excellent access to the strategic road network, whereas their delivery offices need to be located in urban areas to allow the post to be delivered with ease therefore often having to knit seemlessly into residential areas.

Key services that RPS CgMs have provided include asset management of their existing building stock to ensure an efficient and streamlined postal service, advising on the suitability of new buildings for use by Royal Mail and obtaining planning permission for major new developments across the country.
