BEAR, Del. Community Powered FCU announced the opening of its new office and headquarters building here.
The building, described as a 10,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, was designed to accommodate the growing needs of the $117-million credit union, which serves all of New Castle County.
The building’s design takes advantage of natural site elements that will help to lower energy consumption and create a user-friendly facility. Design elements include the use of recycled materials in the building’s construction, the positioning of the facility to maximize usage of natural solar heat, and on-site storm water retention capabilities.
In addition, the credit union said the site boasts three drive-through bays for the convenience of its membership.
