Feasibility Study for the new Waste Services Depot for Milton Keynes Council.

The proposed building is divided into two distinct halves. The administration and welfare facilities are located to the front, and the workshop and stores to the rear. The two halves are separated by a circulation spine that runs the length of the building. This provides a clear circulation route for pedestrian movement both on the ground floor and the first floor.

The building has a green roof over the front section, which forms a canopy entrance and gateway into the site. This gives the scheme a clear identity and is a visual note to the green agenda of waste services. In addition rainwater harvesting is proposed, and the water collected for use at high level in the vehicle washing station. A bank of either solar collectors or PV panels is mounted on the highest point of the roof form.
