Sainsbury’s new £15 million store in Portishead was opened in October 2014. The new store covers 30,000 sq ft and provided 250 new jobs to the local area.
Carmel had 8 weeks to get the store up and running. It was a challenge due to the tight time scales and the late arrival of the free issue Biomass Boiler that needed to be installed. The Team pulled together and worked long hours to make sure we delivered the project on time as promised.
Carmel’s highly trained staff were involved in the full Mechanical install which included Mains Water Supply, Water supply to the Fire Hydrants, Packaged Plant Room, Rain Water Harvesting System, Ventilation and Extract Ductwork, Air Conditioning Systems, and Domestic Water services with heat being delivered from a Biomass Boiler and Plant Room. The Biomass Boilers are carbon neutral helping Sainsbury to cut their carbon foot print.
Carmel were also involved in the full electrical install which included a Transformer, Main LV panel, Sub Mains Cabling, Lighting, Small Power, Data and Telephones, Fire Alarm and a Public Address System. The store lighting was a complete LED system fitted throughout the store which including feature lighting and external car park lighting. The sales area lighting is the new Sainsbury’s spec LED Zumtobel Tecton with a Dali dimming and light sensing control. The LED lighting is working towards Sainsbury’s commitment to becoming more sustainable and using products that are more environmentally friendly.
