California Nevada leagues go green at new site
ONTARIO, Calif. (3/26/09)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues move into the new Ontario Airport Towers this week, marking the sixth change of venue for the trade association. This time the league decided to go green--not the color--but design. Interior materials, including paints, carpeting, and furniture, were selected because of their low chemical emissions and recycled content. Daylight from the office’s numerous windows, combined with efficient lighting fixtures, will help reduce energy use, said the league. Energy Star equipment and appliances were used where possible. And low-flow plumbing fixtures were installed to help reduce water use.

Also, the league recycled furniture by reupholstering and reusing much of its existing furniture, reducing the amount of material sent to the landfill. “The league already practices several green activities--from recycling to carpooling--and we wanted to continue in the same spirit of conservation with this move,” said Bill Cheney, league president/CEO. When the league decided in 2007 to relocate from Rancho Cucamonga, league executives searched for a new headquarters. They selected the new Ontario Airport Towers project, partially because of its LEED-approved green design and because the overall occupancy cost would be less than the lease for the old headquarters. The new location features the latest in technological advancements, and the office space is better-suited for the needs of employees and league members, the league said. The league will occupy the entire sixth floor of the project’s first phase, a 150,000-square-foot steel-frame building. The Ontario Airport Towers office complex is scheduled to be completed in three phases and will contain roughly 850,000 square feet of office space. It is currently the largest Class “A” office building in development in the area.
