This branch is the 12th facility for which LEVEL5 and Delta Community have partnered together to design and build and the first location to incorporate various energy efficient features. The exterior of the branch has energy-efficient blue-tinted glass and a “cool roof” comprised 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. Contemporary design “air foil” sunshades provide shade for the windows and reduce internal heat caused by the sun.

“LEVEL5 was an asset in the planning and fulfillment of our retail delivery strategy,” said Rick Foley, president/CEO of Delta Community CU. “They incorporated our branding and retail merchandising elements throughout the Newnan branch, both internally and externally. This facility offers everything a state-of-the-art financial institution needs to have today, and, perhaps best of all, the Newnan branch is energy efficient.” “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,” he added. “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.” Delta Community is the largest credit union in Georgia, with 174,000 members and more than $2.8 billion in assets. Initially founded to serve the employees of Delta Air Lines, the credit union is expanding its membership base to provide financial services to much of the greater metro Atlanta community, including residents of 10 counties.
