Fifth Third Bank opens LEED-certified location



Fifth Third Bank opened an environmentally-friendly, LEED-Certified financial center last week at 205 E. Carmel Dr.

To meet LEED standards, the new location reduces water use by 38 percent and energy use by 24 percent. All equipment used in the financial center is Energy Star certified, and all power used will be offset through green wind energy. The new site also includes a “cool roof” with heat resistant shingles and three designated customer parking spaces for environmentally-friendly vehicles to park.

The new “green” financial center is an 8,500-square-foot, full-service financial center with nine offices including three drive-thru lanes, a drive-up ATM with “envelope free” deposit acceptance, dedicated safe deposit box vault service for easy customer access and advanced technology for faster transaction processing at the teller line.
