Their challenge

Walgreens Boots Alliance has adopted a goal to reduce emissions to help mitigate climate change. To support this goal, Walgreens set out to reduce energy usage in their more than 8,000 stores, As part of that effort and to set a new standard in the industry, Walgreens wanted to build the nation’s first net-zero energy retail store.

Our solution

We designed the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for their new store and provided LEED consulting services. The designs included over 800 solar panels, wind turbines, geothermal energy, LED lighting and daylight harvesting, a CO2 refrigeration system, and natural ventilation.
