Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services have received practical completion on the new 31,000m2 Ikea Superstore in Exeter.
Designed by SRA Architects, the new store is modern and in line with IKEA’s other stores across the UK. The three-storey building features a sales area, warehouse and restaurant.
Briggs & Forrester worked closely with Cunnington Clark to deliver the building services design. The mechanical and electrical services include smoke control, fire alarm and external services.
The project expects to achieve a BREEAM rating ‘Excellent’, utilising energy efficient and sustainable services such as photovoltaic panels, rainwater harvesting and ground source heating.
