Cedar Rapids Northeast Grand Opening
Hills Bank's Cedar Rapids Northeast location is celebrating its grand opening from May 15 - 22 at 3905 Blairs Ferry Road NE.
Environmentally responsible and energy efficient, the new building represents Hills Bank’s commitment to improving the communities we serve.
“Building this new office was a great opportunity, so we were eager to take advantage of the latest technology to conserve energy,” commented Joy Newhouse, First Vice President and Branch Manager, Hills Bank. One noticeable feature is the abundant use of natural daylighting. With many windows and a bright lobby, the need for artificial lighting is reduced. The orientation of the roof, office windows, and high clerestory windows takes advantage of seasonal lighting, while the Low-E (low emissivity) glazing to the windows reduce heat transfer, keeping the building cooler in summer and preserving the warmth in winter.
When artificial lighting is reduced, the use of fewer watts per square foot results in significant energy savings. With occupancy sensors and stepped daylighting control in the office and conference rooms, artificial lighting is provided only when rooms are in use.
Heat for the building is provided by a geothermal process, extracting heat from the soil for warmth in winter, then reversing the process to cool the interior in summer. Extra insulation in the walls and roof maximizes the gain. The building was designed by Brost Architects & Planners LTD.
