Refuse Depot, Winchester

CLIENT: Winchester City Council
VALUE: £2m

SHA were involved with the construction of a new depot facility on the Barfield Industrial Estate on behalf of Winchester City Council, for which we gained planning permission in 2011.


The project is BREEAM rated ‘Very Good’ and provides workshop, parking, storage and administration facilities for the operators of Winchester’s new fleet of refuse vehicles as well as the grounds maintenance landscape contractors. The 1.6 acre site accommodates up to 20 refuse lorries as well as landscape maintenance equipment and provides servicing and cleaning facilities for the fleet of vehicles.


The works were carried out under a construction management method of procurement, with SHA providing ongoing architectural services directly on behalf of the client.
