Case Study
Fordingbridge are delighted with their involvement as part of the project team delivering the first 'Zero Energy' retail building for Costa Coffee. The building design ensures a net zero energy rating is achieved.

The curved roof structure will contribute towards Costa’s objective of reducing energy usage and therefore the impact on the environment.

Intelligent building orientation optimising the sun’s capacity for daylight and heat gain, saving considerable energy costs during retail hours. Photovoltaic solar panels that ensure a sustainable energy source for all appliances. Underfloor heating and passive ventilation technologies assuring an optimised internal temperature is gained from natural resources.
