Supermarket group ASDA has a comprehensive energy efficiency programme that includes identifying sustainable and renewable sources of energy for all its stores and depots.

Its flagship energy efficient store model, opened in Bootle, Merseyside features innovations such as a main structural frame built entirely from sustainably sourced timber, a recycled aluminium roof, and extensive use of natural lighting including Monodraught Sunpipes and translucent walls.

The Monodraught Sunpipe systems are used to introduce natural daylight into a wide area of the first floor mezzanine area that includes a customer restaurant overlooking the sales floor and staff facilities including their restaurant and cafeteria, a communal changing room, a meeting room and offices.

Monodraught worked closely with ASDA’s M&E contractor SIAS on the specification and  installation of our 750 mm Sunpipe systems, which are designed to produce approximately 1000 lux at floor level, making them ideal for buildings of more than 7 m in height.
