Booths – Media City UK, Salford

MediaCityUK is the new home of the BBC, ITV, Coronation Street, Satellite Information Services and the University of Salford. It is the first development in the world to receive the BREEAM Excellent accreditation for sustainability. When Booths Supermarkets announced plans that they were to be opening a store on site at this prestigious development, we were thrilled to be involved in such an exciting project.

The Booths MediaCityUK store covers 15,000 square feet over two floors and includes a butchery, fishmonger, delicatessen, wine merchant, cheese-monger, and florist.

Providing for all the store’s refrigeration needs, Hamilton-Clark designed, procured and project managed the installation of a highly advanced transcritical CO2 refrigeration system, and was able to make further increases in efficiency and energy consumption by designing a heat recovery system which recovers the heat expelled from the CO2 refrigeration system and directs it into air handling units, providing heat to the store and hot tap water.

Energy efficiency and sustainability were at the forefront of the design, combined with a need for an ultra high quality finish. MediaCityUK is an urban development and occupied by several media companies including the BBC. With both recording studios and residential property in close proximity to the store it is subject to strict noise emission restrictions. This meant that a bespoke inbound refrigeration condenser/gas cooler had to be designed to reject the excess heat within the summer months. This is a highly sophisticated and fully attenuated design that successfully ensures compliance with the stringent noise restrictions in place at MediaCityUK. High quality Italian refrigerated serve-over counters are a key feature within the store and use bespoke finishes to create a unique look.

Hamilton-Clark is very proud to have played a key role within the design and delivery of this signature store.
