Denmark’s Salling Group has announced that it has commenced the construction of a sustainable Netto store at Bygholm Bakker in Horsens.
The store, which is a first of its kind in the country, will use sustainable and recyclable materials for construction.
Director of Netto. Michael Løve, said, “We will go to great lengths to realise our priority and ambition to run a more sustainable business for the benefit of customers, colleagues and the community around us.
“That is why we are pleased that we can build a store with respect for both the environment, nature and the community that the store becomes part of.”
The New Store
The facade of the building will be constructed with separable wooden structures, while the roof will use Danish-produced glulam, a material that minimises the environmental impact during manufacture.
The building will have large windows near the entrance for maximum daylight.
Løve added, “We hope and believe that the construction at Bygholm Bakker will become the new standard in Netto.
"We dare to make some choices that we believe will benefit society and the local community in the long term. Hopefully, by leading the way, we can set a new direction for how we build and build grocery stores."
The store is expected to open before Christmas this year and is being constructed by C.F. Møller Architects.
