The 8,024-sf McDonald’s Flagship-Disney, located in Orlando, has completed construction and is aiming to be the first net-zero quick service restaurant in the world.

The project takes advantage of Orlando’s subtropical climate and is able to be naturally ventilated for about 65% of the year. Jalousie windows, operated by outdoor humidity and temperature sensors, close automatically when air conditioning is required.

On-site energy generation strategies include 18,727 sf of photovoltaic panels, 4,809 sf of glazing integrated photovoltaic panels (BiPV), and 25 off-the-grid parking lot lights. Other sustainable strategies include paving materials that reduce the urban heat island effect, surfaces that redirect rainwater, 1,766 sf of living green wall, new LED lighting, and low flow plumbing.

An outdoor porch features Kebony wood louvered walls and fans to create an extension of the indoor dining room.
