M&S Cheshire Oaks Case Study

M&S Cheshire Oaks Case Study

Cheshire Oaks is Marks & Spencer's biggest greenest store, designed to be the most carbon efficient, biodiverse and materially innovative M&S store to date with an architectural and design strategy that addresses several areas of sustainability at once.

Being located in a heavily populated area with 600 homes situated immediately behind the store and thriving businesses located on every side resulted in the build generating lots of local interest and important stakeholders to consider. A post occupancy evaluation study will be carried out to embed the successes of this project in future specifications.

Excellent case study showing how careful selection of materials and lean design has resulted in significant embodied energy savings. Sean Lockie at Faithful and Gould will be showcasing the case study at our event on April 17th: Building Products in a Resource Efficient World with Professor Julian Allwood at UCL from 13.30. Please see www.asbp.org.uk for the programme.

Great case study detailing the environmental considerations to building M&S' Cheshire Oaks store, including transport, energy efficiency and waste. Also includes some images of the stunning 100 per cent FSC-certified glulam roof.
