The new 12,400 square foot Simply Food shop, in Sheffield, will minimise its environmental impacts in its construction and operation.
The new shop is being built on a former brownfield site. Building the store, rather than renovating one, is allowing M&S to use more recovered materials in the store’s construction.
The timber used is expected to be 100 per cent FSC certified, and all of the bricks that will be used are to come from an old mill. Once the walls are up, the floor will be made of polished concrete. Any waste generated during construction is set to be recycled.
