To make sure they are treading as lightly as possible on our planet, Nando’s restaurant designs and construction must be progressively sustainable.
Nando’s Sustainable Fit-Out Guide sets out its sustainability principles when they refurbish or build a new restaurant. It lists certain must-haves, from having recycled content in tiles and using natural fibre insulation, to reusing existing features and ensuring all taps, toilets and flushes are low flow, reducing water usage.
For years, they have only used 100% LED lighting, made sure to re-use timber from construction and invested in specialised equipment to reduce their energy consumption.
The point of developing a restaurant with sustainable features is to test innovation methods and trial sustainable equipment, with a view to rolling these out to more restaurants.
Nando’s buildings are not only beautifully green and sustainable, but they’re also beautiful to look at. Each restaurant is designed individually, using bright, vibrant colours as a celebration of its heritage in Mozambique and South Africa.
