Marks & Spencers Eco-stores

Getting the DESIGN right

Led the development of Reid Architecture’s sustainability response to Marks & Spencer’s Plan A which developed into a number number of sustainability strategies that were incorporated into the designs for the fitting out of a number of stores, including:

> The use of Green Guide to Specification’s A Rated materials
> Zero formaldehyde added mdf board
> Non-toxic paint
> Green roofs
> 40% ceiling concept to expose thermal mass to assist the displacement ventilation (rather than the normal air-conditioning) to cool the retail spaces. This required the design of a new displacement ventilation column casing to allow retail racking to be placed against it without impeding the required ventilation.

These strategies were used as the basis for Reid Architecture’s designs for the fitting out of a number of Marks & Spencer's stores including:

> The refurbishment fit-out of the store in Bournemouth which achieved a BREEAM Very Good Rating and reduced energy consumption by 25% against a typical store
> The fit-out of the new Silverburn store which achieved a BREEAM Excellent Rating and reduced energy consumption by 55% against a typical store
> The fit-out of the new Galashields Simply Foods store which achieved a BREEAM Excellent Rating
