Better Buildings Partnership launches case study on our collaborative project with B&Q
21 Apr 2016
At Cyfarthfa Retail Park in Merthyr Tydfil, Hammerson and B&Q partnered to create an Eco Learning Store. It is one of the first projects in the UK to feature a Transpired Solar Collector system, which harvests the sun’s heat to warm the store’s interior, cutting energy bills and CO2 emissions.
Other sustainability measures include rainwater harvesting, green roofs, low carbon materials and low energy lighting.
The store presents a highly sustainable blueprint for retail parks and demonstrates the environmental and cost savings that can be achieved by owners and occupiers working together.
