John Lewis Partnership plc Sustainability Review 2014


35 A showcase for responsible development


Waitrose Chipping Sodbury was one of 2013’s ‘Point of Focus’ projects for the Partnership’s Responsible Development Framework.


“ I am delighted to be managing such a trail-blazing shop. You can see the quality and investment that has gone into it and it feels special to be trialling a range of new features


that lower our environmental impact.” Richard Clare, Manager, Waitrose Chipping Sodbury


The focus areas for this new build shop – the Gloucestershire town’s first major supermarket – were to reduce the carbon intensity of the facility compared to equivalent existing branches, enhance local biodiversity, connect with the local community, trial the use of new types of sustainable materials and improve amenities for Partners.


This 21,000 sq. ft. shop, certified as BREEAM Excellent, included a number of engineering initiatives – such as high efficiency plant, the installation of LED lighting throughout and water cooled refrigeration, making it 40% more carbon efficient than the equivalent existing shop. Recycled plastic was used to manufacture covered trolley bays, kerbs and benches, and biodiversity, involving local conservation groups, was a key focus – our aim being to maintain and enhance habitats in the vicinity of the site.


SUSTAINABLE PROJECT OF THE YEAR


Waitrose Chipping Sodbury has been shortlisted for ‘Sustainable Project of the Year’ at the 2014 Building Awards.
