BREEAM New Construction: Retail - Case Study Waitrose, Stratford
The Waitrose supermarket at Stratford City forms part of the new Westfield Shopping Centre. Waitrose took on the empty shell and fitted it out to the company’s own specification.
Waitrose operates an in-house policy that all of its stores are BREEAM assessed, with the minimum requirement being a ‘Very Good’ rating. As there was opportunity at the Westfield site to connect into the development’s ‘Energy Centre’, Waitrose decided to do this and to strive for an ‘Outstanding’ rating for the fit-out work.
