Metroasis, 400th LEED Certified Store for Starbucks

Mountford Pigott’s design and construction teams are proud to be a part of Starbucks’ celebration for their 400th LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified store in Gateshead.

Our Metroasis scheme, which also attained a BREEAM Very Good rating, forms part of a new addition to Metrocentre, one of Europe’s largest shopping centres. The store design facilitates an abundance of natural daylight as well as being an iconic landmark close to public transportation links and accessible via bicycle. The interior space boasts efficient lighting, low flow water fixtures and locally manufactured casework.

Starbucks now has certified stores in 18 countries across four continents, the only retailer with such international diversity in their LEED portfolio. While this effort is coordinated from the SSC, it would not be possible without the assistance of field teams across many disciplines, including design, construction, facilities, real estate, operations, architects, engineers, and builders.
