Marks and Spencer has completed the green makeover of its Newcastle store, which includes a 167 sq m green wall. The living wall is the most obvious feature of the eco-refit of the Northumberland Street store.
Other elements of the refurbishment include:
- New energy efficient refrigerators and LED refrigerator lighting
- Waste heat from the refrigeration system is redistributed to the food hall
- Over-door air heaters form an air curtain, to keep heat in the food hall. Doors are also fitted with intelligent sensors
- The green wall is irrigated by rainwater, which is harvested on the roof.
This is the first M&S store to receive the green makeover treatment.
