Halton Council depot refurbishment completed

The £1.2m renovation of Halton Council’s facility in Widnes has been completed, with the project seeing a significant upgrade to the services offered at the site.

The depot, which is in use constantly through the day, seven days a week, was upgraded following a thorough assessment and feasibility exercise completed by the council.

Following this, the project was completed without causing any disruption to the provision of council services. The works was said not to impact on nearby residents either, while no disruptions were needed to local roads or infrastructure.

In order to deliver the most cost-effective and non-disruptive works, a phased schedule was introduced over the last three years. Several buildings on site were refurbished with new warehouse flooring, racking, and space for staff.

A spokesman working on the scheme said that as well the design challenges, the careful phasing added another layer to the project management.

As well as the refits to existing structures, modular buildings were also installed to provide more space for staff, while car parking was reconfigured to better use the space. Other elements introduced under the scheme were the construction of new vehicle maintenance and vehicle storage facilities, which will be used by staff working at the site, as well as people accessing the relevant council services.

A number of older buildings were also demolished as part of the project. The structures that were taken down included an obsolete welfare block, an outdated transport facility, and an archive site, which had been replaced by the refurbishment and construction works.
