On behalf of our Board of Directors, Management and staff, I would like to thank you for your interest in Scott Credit Union’s Home Office. We are extremely proud of our home and are very pleased to share with you what makes this building truly unique.
When we were in the planning stages for the building, we decided that seeking the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Certification was the right choice. Taking a “green” approach to our building project was the right thing to do for our community, our employees, and for the future of our environment.
Achieving LEED® Certification was a rewarding experience. Many details go into achieving the certification. A few of the details included lessening the impact on the habitat and natural resources when preparing the site, using building materials from sources within a 500-mile radius of our location, using a ground-source geothermal heating and cooling system and conserving energy used for lighting by designing the interior to use more natural light.
We hope that our building will serve as a great example for others to follow and may even inspire you to be more “green” in your daily life.
Thank you again for your interest in our Home Office. We hope that you schedule a tour. We’re confident you will be impressed with the technology in the building that helped us to achieve LEED® Certification.
