Conversion of an existing Theatre in the heart of downtown Minneapolis to a LEED Silver rated supermarket and Wine store

As a result of very stringent historical preservation codes, the exterior of the building was not able to be modified in any way, which increased the challenge to Energy Squared in making this one of the most efficient supermarkets in the country.

This highly efficient store was an early adopter of LED lighting for both the sales area and the backroom By using high efficiency condensing boilers and the rejected heat from the refrigeration systems, in combination with roof mounted water source heat pumps, the store was able to avail itself of a highly efficient heating system. Cooling is provided by a multi-path high efficiency dehumidification system with outside air being varied based upon the exhaust hood operation.
