Meter Assessment and Recycling Centre

Located at National Gridʼs UK Distribution Centre in Birmingham, the building consolidates the meter assessment and recycling operations that were previously spread across the site. The building has been arranged to suit the various work-flows and houses two bespoke machines that separate and safely dispose of elements containing mercury, which is classified as a hazardous waste.

The buildng and its process has subsequently been awarded National Grid Chairmanʼs Award 2011 and also The IGEM/SBGI Gas Industry Climate Change Award 2011.

This project was undertaken when Jim Richards was Director of Richards Partington Architects.
