NXWM Managing Director David Bradford says: “From the very start of the project, we wanted to create a site that offered our people a high-quality working environment but to also ensure a low environmental impact on both the build and future operations.

“By being able to design something from scratch, we have transformed how we work from top to bottom. Through evolving our garage and operations, we will use less energy, be even safer, have more efficient ways of working, and be better equipped to train and look after our people – while providing great value transport to the people of the West Midlands.”
