The Tesco store on Cromer Road in Sheringham was opened on 24 Oct 2013. Tesco claim that it is their most efficient store in the UK. Just Swiss provided the engineering of the timber structure for the 52'000 ft2 store. The decision of using a timber frame is part of Tesco's Climate Change Programme and this is just one of a number of eco-stores opened by the chain. Using a timber instead of a metal frame significantly reduced the store's carbon footprint. Roof lights allow for more natural daylight in the store and therefore save electricity. Tesco placed great importance on having an open structure with few beams. We used our patented GSA-technology to ensure high load bearing and to connect the Glulam-beams. The timber structure was delivered in parts and erected within just a few days.
