Woolworths opens its most sustainable supermarket in new Burwood Brickworks.
Anchored in the groundbreaking new Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre, Woolworths Brickworks is undertaking the Living Building Challenge™ (LBC), which is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings.
The new store will operate using 100% renewable energy which is equivalent to taking 700 cars off the road each year. Woolworths Supermarkets Managing Director Claire Peters said: “Woolworths Burwood Brickworks is the next step in our journey to create a neighbourhood food store, with sustainability and the needs of local customers at the heart of its design.
Claire Peters concluded: “From store lighting and air-conditioning to food refrigeration and preparation, we have looked at all angles to see how we can build and run this store more sustainably.”
Where BioPipe was used
This includes the adoption of the BioPipe and Parx Plastics system for the condensate drainage on the refrigeration display cabinets and cold rooms. The BioPipe system ticked all the boxes when it came to selecting a sustainable, non-toxic, reusable and recyclable product, while still maintaining a hygienical cleaner environment inside the BioPipe by reducing the risks of blockages and maintenance issues and eliminating the use of harsh chemicals for cleaning and preventing blockages.
