Kaufland completes one of the most sustainable revitalizations to date in Bad Tölz

This Thursday, one of the most sustainably modernized Kaufland stores to date will reopen to customers in Lenggrieser Straße in Bad Tölz. Just a glance at the newly designed facade with modern, sustainable wooden elements, which blends harmoniously into the local, Bavarian building culture, makes it clear that a very special revitalization of the more than 50-year-old store has taken place here after a total renovation period of around 17 months.

What can no longer be seen is that particular emphasis was also placed on sustainability during the roof renovation. A waterproofing membrane was used that consists mainly of recycled material and can be recycled again at the end of its useful life. In the parking lot area, not only was the number of parking spaces increased to almost 300, but demolition material was also reused. Grids made from recycled PET bottle material were used for some of the widened parking spaces. The grids themselves are made from recycled building materials. The surface water is now cleaned on site and can seep into the groundwater locally. Recycling also plays a central role in the interior, as the shelves are recycled, and the ram protection is made of recycled material.

When designing the store, particular attention was also paid to the use of energy-saving and climate-friendly technology. By installing a new ventilation system, the waste heat from the modernized freezers and cabinets can also be used to heat and cool the sales area and the office and social rooms, which have also been renovated. In addition, energy-saving, closed refrigeration units and pleasant LED lighting reduce energy requirements.

Modern store with an expanded range and the usual reliability

On an enlarged sales area of around 3,800 sq m, an even more extensive range of groceries and everything for daily needs awaits. “We are particularly proud of the fact that we can now offer our customers fresh fish at our service counter. The modernized store is much clearer and corresponds to the current modern concept with a bright and friendly design as well as a clear customer guidance system for ideal orientation. We look forward to welcoming customers with the usual reliability in a modern shopping facility,” says store manager Maximilian Rott. The store will be operated with the same staff as before the modernization and thus with the familiar expertise, and additional jobs have been created.

It’s not just the opening hours that will remain as attractive as ever from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Customers in Bad Tölz can also continue to rely on an attractive mix of shops in the checkout area. A post office as well as bakers and butchers are still represented on site.
