Honest Weight Food Co-op
Sano-Rubin was the design-builder for Honest Weight’s new natural foods grocery store located on a 2.4 acre parcel on Watervliet Avenue in Albany. The new 30,000 sf store contains 18,000 sf of retail space, supplemented by full commercial kitchen, preparation and storage areas, administrative spaces, and areas designated for community and educational purposes includes demonstration kitchen. The project incorporated sustainable features such as porous pavement, bike racks for employees and customers, energy-efficient roof and wall insulation, reclaimed pallet wood for casework and natural light through windows and skylights.
Sano-Rubin worked closely with the Co-op to achieve the store’s program within their budget and schedule.
