Hampton Brook welcome Sainsbury’s to Magnetic Park, Desborough
February 2023

Hampton Brook are delighted that Sainsbury’s have opened their new store at Desborough, Northamptonshire. Sainsbury’s have purchased the last remaining plot fronting Harborough Road of 2.74 acres to build an 11,000 sq ft Neighbourhood Hub Store.

Sainsbury’s join a list of other occupiers that Hampton Brook have worked with to deliver bespoke facilities, including Great Bear Logistics, Dunkelman Shoes, Okay Engineering, Jaracanda carpets and a BP fuel station including an M&S.

The highly anticipated ‘Neighbourhood Hub’ format store has been under construction since last summer, following an overwhelmingly positive response from the local community during the consultation process that proceeded the store’s planning application. MP for Kettering Philip Hollobone joined colleagues, customers and local councillors to cut the ribbon and celebrate the store’s launch.

In line with Sainsbury’s ambition to become net zero in its own operations by 2035, the Desborough store has been designed to be as energy efficient as possible. It will be powered by 100% renewable electricity and will not rely on any natural gas to meet its heating requirements. It will also feature solar panels on the roof to help the store generate its own electricity, 100% LED lighting, rainwater harvesting equipment and a single heat pump system that keeps chilled cabinets, cold stores, and heating systems at the right temperature all year long. The store been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating and its Energy Performance Certificate has been rated ‘A’.
