Marks & Spencer on Northumberland Street, Newcastle, is one of the most eco-friendly and visually impressive stores in the North East, with the most striking development being a 167 square metre green wall on the side of the building.
The creation of the green wall, which is irrigated by rainwater and has been made using nearly 16,000 individual plants, features alongside a number of other eco-friendly changes in-store. Intelligent door sensors, LED fridge lighting and a new heat reclaim system will all help to improve M&S Newcastle’s energy efficiency by 20% whilst enhancing the customer experience.
Mike Barry, Director of Plan A, said: “M&S Newcastle is one of our most important stores so the finished green wall and store’s eco energy refit is hugely exciting for everyone at M&S. We hope the completion of this project will boost Northumberland Street, and provide our customers with an improved shopping experience. ”
