Construction underway on Finast in LI.

Construction of a new 48,500-square-foot Finast Supermarket in Bay Shore, New York, has begun, according to RAL Design Associates and Affiliates, architects and engineers on the project.

Located in a shopping center at the intersection of Montauk Highway and Saxon Avenue in Bay Shore, the new Finast will have a state-of-the-art dehumidification system that converts waste heat into energy, cutting energy consumption by approximately 15 percent.

The anti-humidity equipment cuts the dampness, and the supermarket's conventional air-conditioning system has to deal only with the air temperature. Drier air permits store temperatures to be raised to a higher level that is still comfortable for shoppers, according to the announcement.

Overall, the system results in a decrease in electricity usage, providing reduced energy costs.

Finast has recently developed a new exterior consisting of a decorative split-face center-scored concrete block and synthetic stucco storefront for their supermarkets.

General contractor for the project is James A. Smith Contracting, Inc., Huntington, New York. The building is to be completed by early 1992.
