Delta Community Opens Green Branch
ATLANTA -- Consulting/ facilities development firm LEVEL5 has recently completed Delta Community Credit Union's first energy efficient branch in Newnan, Georgia.
The branch exterior features energy efficient blue-tinted glass and a "cool roof" made out of white thermoplastic olefin. The white color reflects solar radiation rather than absorbing it. This reflection, in conjunction with the well-insulated roof adds to the building's energy efficiency. According to the credit union, contemporary design air foil sunshades add a sophisticated look to the exterior while providing shade for the windows and reducing internal heat caused by the sun.
"Focusing on energy efficiency is more than just a trend--it is a responsible way to protect member's investments," said J. F. Kassler, president/CEO of LEVEL5. "The progressive design of Delta Community's Newnan branch will save its members money for decades to come. The environmental benefits are huge as well--building an energy-efficient branch that also resourcefully uses the latest technology and design layout on the inside, Delta Community Credit Union will experience the highest possible return on investment from a branch where members want to conduct their business."
