CU System briefs (06/03/2009)
* BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/4/09)--Service One CU's Campbell Lane Green Addition will install a LiveRoof next week. Designed by growers and experts in agriculture, roofing, logistics and ergonomics, the system will decrease indoor temperatures during warm/hot weather by six to eight degrees and reduce air conditioning costs by up to 50%, says the Bowling Green-based credit union. LiveRoof will extend the roof's lifetime by an estimated 200%-300% by protecting the rooftop from ultraviolet radiation, large temperature fluctuations, drying winds and punctures. The soil in the green roof system will act as a sponge, absorbing excess rainwater and reducing storm water runoff. Its plants and soil will create a habitat for butterflies, insects and birds. The $85 million asset credit union aims to obtain a platinum level of LEED certification. The addition already boasts geo-thermal heating and cooling, a bio-retention basin, reclaimed timbers, ICF walls, earth berms, grass pavers, recycled floor coverings, glass block windows with nanogel and natural day lighting … * INDIANAPOLIS (6/4/09)--The merger of Indianapolis-based Indiana Members CU and Marsh Employees FCU, Fishers, Ind., was completed Monday, the credit unions announced (The Herald Bulletin June 2).
