The Parque Hundido restaurant in Mexico reopened its doors after weeks of remodeling, during which it was transformed into an ecological building. The building was carefully redesigned with preservation of the environment in mind.
The new Parque Hundido McDonald’s includes features to reduce waste and contamination and use of nonrenewable energy, while providing customers and employees with a comfortable, healthy and safe environment. In the remodeling of the restaurant, green technologies were used. In line with the green concept, most of the furniture from the old restaurant was reused to build new furniture.
With the new green design, electricity consumption will be reduced by up to 25 percent, and the installation of water-saving techniques in the bathrooms will provide a considerable reduction in the consumption of this vital liquid. Landscaped areas, an important part of the Parque Hundido McDonald’s, feature plants native to the Valley of Mexico that do not require significant watering as they are naturally adapted to the city’s climate.
