Fordingbridge are extremely proud to have delivered the complete frame and envelope of the UK’s first Net Zero Drive-Thru.

Following on from the first Net Zero retail building for Costa in 2015, Fordingbridge delivered this project for developer Hammerson on their Parc Tawe retail park in Swansea. The 186m²/2000ft² pod, designed by Zero Energy Architecture, houses a dine-in and drive-thru Costa Coffee situated in the car park of the large shopping centre redevelopment scheme. Working with main contractor ISG, Fordingbridge completed the shell of the pod in an eight-week programme, ready for client fit-out.

“The whole process from initial design through to onsite delivery was flawless. We were very impressed by the management of the build throughout and one point of contact to resolve any issues along the way. I would be more than happy to work with Fordingbridge again in the future and or recommend them to others for use.”
Simon King, Operations Manager, ISG
