If you’ve driven past the new H-E-B that opened last week at Mueller, you’ve probably noticed it’s not your average grocery store. With grand architecture capped by a sweeping, sloping roofline reminiscent of an airplane wing and a total of 83,000 square feet, this H-E-B at the corner of 51st Street and Berkman Drive is not only impressive to look at, but is also a sustainable test project for H-E-B that makes it the greenest store the Texas chain has ever designed, built and operated.
Like most other commercial buildings at Mueller, this H-E-B will earn U.S.G.B.C LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification, perhaps at the platinum level. A variety of innovative features contribute to making the Mueller H-E-B an extremely energy-efficient building:
In total, the Mueller H-E-B will reduce carbon dioxide emissions a whopping 85 percent annually — that’s the equivalent of 103,000 trees planted or 875 cars removed from roadways each year!
