The proposed site for the Supermarket complex sits in a lush valley in relative proximity to one of the major towns in Grenada.
The main aim was to design an innovative, contemporary supermarket suited to the Caribbean climate and context, creating a new approach to commercial developments in Grenada through careful planning and integrated design.
The building consists of a supermarket on the ground floor and mini mart, offices and conference room on the first floor. The slope of the land was seen as an advantage. The parking area and entrance to the supermarket were placed on the lower level while the gas station and mini mart were positioned on the top level - easily accessible from the main road.
Green building techniques define the design. Sun shading systems were implemented, particularly on the facades where the sun impact is most harsh. This is aimed at reducing the solar heat gain and optimizing interior climate control.
