TFB’s View Tree Branch earns LEED certification

The 9,597-square-foot building opened in 2009.
The Fauquier Bank has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for its View Tree Branch in Warrenton.

Built in 2009, the 9,597-square-foot building houses branch and office operations at 87 W. Lee Highway.

Designed and built by PW Campbell Contracting Co. of Pittsburgh, the building achieved LEED certification for incorporating efficiencies in energy use, including HVAC design, lighting and water, and for the use of sustainable building materials.

“ ‘Green’ strategies allow LEED certified buildings to save money on operations as well as contribute to a healthier environment for employees and the larger community,” bank President/CEO Randy K. Ferrell said.

Examples of the specific LEED criteria adopted in TFB’s View Tree Branch include:

• Energy efficiency through building design.

• Use of building products that incorporate recycled content.

• Use of low-emission materials including paints, adhesives, sealants, carpets.

• Allowance for the collection and storage of recyclables.

• Installation of low-flow faucets and toilets for water conservation.

• Use of green cleaning products.

• Reduction of electrical use with motion sensors and timers.

• Installation of a ventilation system that monitors indoor air quality.

“We recognize the importance of leading by example and demonstrating our commitment to the environment and future generations,” Mr. Ferrell said. “We are extremely proud to have earned LEED certification.”
