M&T Bank (MTB) has opened a new energy-efficient branch in Newburgh, N.Y., as part of a $10 million investment initiative in the Hudson Valley area.
The $78 billion-asset M&T has already completed a combination of building renovations and interior improvements at 28 additional branches and installed advanced ATMs at all Hudson Valley locations.
The Newburgh branch was constructed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, the Buffalo, N.Y., company said Monday. Its roof assembly consists of an insulated cavity with solar reflective roofing membrane while the interior lighting uses a combination of energy efficient fluorescent lamps, ceramic metal halide lamps and light emitting diodes. The building's heating and cooling is provided by a geothermal design with an energy-recovery unit.
The building was designed by architect Lorenzo Apicella of the design firm Pentagram.
