Supermercado Superseis Japón is a commercial retail development located in the San Vincente district of Asunción, Paraguay. It was developed by Retail S.A. and their subsidiary, Superseis, a premium supermarket chain with 25 locations across Paraguay. The chain has set itself up to be a pioneer for sustainability and renewable energy solutions in the retail sector in the country. Superseis Japón with its focus on energy-saving technologies and efficient use of water was designed to serve as a blueprint for future projects for the entire Superseis chain.
Through the use of energy-efficient solutions such as reflective paint and insulation for roofs and external walls, more energy efficient glassing and AC systems, solar hot water collectors, rainwater harvesting, LED lightbulbs and water-efficient plumbing features, the project was able to significantly reduce its energy and water consumption, resulting in a more sustainable construction project and a reduced carbon footprint.
