Conversion of a former commercial building in Richmond Upon Thames to a Waitrose supermarket with a 47-space car park. A complex planning process saw construction completed within 11 weeks. In accordance with the necessity to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, sustainable features included photovoltaic panels on the roof and green technology water cooling in the place of VRF. Carbon fibre reinforcement of the first floor was required to accommodate back-of-store infrastructure and a goods lift was installed.
