Tesco Engineering Energy-Efficient Stores

Mark Hawker, IMechE Fellow and Head of Engineering Design for Tesco Property Services, discusses the construction and operation of their energy-efficient sustainable concept store. The film looks at the different aspects of engineering involved in transforming a plot of land into a store whilst reducing its carbon footprint by at least 30%. The timber construction contains a lot less embodied carbon than concrete or steel, and the store uses natural lighting and ventilation. Engineers have optimised the refrigeration system so that the waste heat is recycled to heat the store. Curriculum links include climate change, sustainability, energy sources, carbon dioxide
