Fordingbridge help deliver zero energy retail building

Fordingbridge are excited to announce our role as part of the project team delivering the first zero energy retail building for the nation’s favourite coffeehouse chain – Costa Coffee. The new development, which will be built at Wrekin Retail Park in Telford, has been designed in collaboration with Emission Zero Architects.

Costa has been consistently reducing the energy usage within their new stores over the last few years and this development will mark a significant step forward in their endeavour to reduce their impact on the environment. The building’s architecture is designed by emission zero to express its high environmental and energy performance. The striking curved timber aesthetic creates a curved roof which will be covered by an extensive roof mounted photovoltaic array.

A scalloped canopy on the north elevation provides an al fresco dining space. A passive ventilation strategy has been introduced into both the facade and roof design which has been designed to account for the internal heat gains when the building is operational to ensure a comfortable internal environment is maintained throughout the year. All design elements have been carefully balanced to provide a Zero Energy Building with Energy Performance Asset Rating of A+.

Steve Toone, Managing Director has said "Fordingbridge are very proud to be part of the team working collaboratively on the new Costa Coffee building at Wrekin Retail Park, Telford. The project’s commencement will see the fruition of much hard work from all team members and should mark the start of a change in perception about sustainable commercial development."
