Eco-Friendly Supermarket

This is a Feasibility Study for an environmentally friendly supermarket with upper restaurant & catering level based on the principles of sustainability located on the corner of Walthamstow High Street / Palmerston Road.The project features a number of environmental initiatives including biomass boiler powered by waste wood pellets, rainwater harvesting (re-use of toilet flushing), passive air scoops, translucent water heating solar panels, sensor lighting (LED), green roof beds, seasonal heat recovery system with the general aim to achieve a BREEAM Very Good to Excellent rating. The proposed new building will reduce the energy consumption by up to 45% over a typical standard warehouse. The large area of roof lights is to maximize natural daylight combined with intelligent low-energy lighting system. All the glazing is high-performance triple glazing with thermally broken aluminum frames, non-conductive edge-spaces, low e-coatings and inert gas fill. The store also offers charging points for electric and hybrid vehicles in the car park area.The prefabricated built up cladding system has been developed to be capable of re-use at the end of the building lifecycle. The mixture of timber and steel-frame construction with pre-fabricated structurally insulated panels (SIPS) is targeting as much as possible carbon neutral.High strength-to-weight ratio coupled with a low carbon footprint (estimated 0.7 tons of CO2 per ton of steel) results in an overall reduction of the embodied carbon of a typical structure as compared to buildings constructed with other framing materials.The Feasibility Study is aiming to demonstrate how a ‘greener’ mixed-use-supermarket can be attractive, practical and overall cost-effective & economically viable, in order to find the optimum balance between environmental protection, architectural responsibility and financial return.
