Cefn Mawr

Inspire were appointed by Tesco to design a new 25,000 sq ft ‘carbon neutral’ food store. The installation of a bio fuel CHP provides power for the store whilst having the potential for export during periods of low demand. This is the second store Inspire successfully completed exploring further the more energy efficient retail design model from Welshpool and improving it. Constructed using a timber frame and CIPS panels to improve the energy efficiency and speed of build, roof lights and wind catchers to capture daylight in the retail space and natural ventilation to the store, all to improve the customer experience.
