Credit union earns LEED Silver certification for Sunset Operations Center in Corvallis

Sunset Operations Center

The new Sunset Operations Center
in Corvallis was designed with
sustainability in mind.

Oregon State Credit Union’s new 62,000-square-foot Sunset Operations Center in Corvallis has achieved LEED® Silver certification. The designation was awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

LEED Silver represents an exceptionally high level of achievement and performance and the certification process demanded that the credit union make an early commitment to following sustainable design guidelines. A rigorous series of design phase and construction phase reviews and audits were managed by the project’s Design/Builder, Momentum, and the Sunset Operations Center will help to support the next phase of growth for the $1.1 billion credit union.

Oregon State Credit Union President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Hein said, “From the outset, this was going to be a LEED-certified contribution to our community and our members. Throughout the process, we maintained an overall focus on improving member service, workplace effectiveness and a commitment to being local. We directed our design and delivery team to develop an Operations Center which met the needs of a diverse and talented workforce for decades to come, all the while respecting that it also represented an investment in member service.”

“Sustainable design, and LEED certification in particular, was considered to be an essential element of the project by the credit union’s leadership team, from both a functional and a performance perspective, with sensitivity given to initial development costs and overall life cycle performance.” said Bob Saunders, executive vice president and partner with Momentum.
