Your new Little Clacton
In its environmental construction, Morrisons Little Clacton has recycled 99% of the demolition materials from its old store in the new build, and reused and reduced steel to lower carbon emissions by 52%. Special car park tarmac has been used to offer a carbon saving of up to 25%. A rainwater harvesting system will be used to flush the store’s toilets and reduce virgin water use of nearly 600,000 litres a year. Outside the store, a wildlife area has been created in the grounds of the store to offer a home for birds, insects and small animals.
The new store design, which has been built from scratch, for the first time brings together the widest range of Morrisons structural features and loose products to reduce carbon emissions, energy and resources - and limit its environmental footprint.
All of the store’s practical initiatives and designs have the genuine potential to be scaled up and introduced more widely across more of our stores.
