In support of PFFCU’s mission to be the primary financial services provider for Police, Fire Fighters and their families throughout the greater Philadelphia area, CMA designed this new branch located on Frankford Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. The facility boasts numerous sustainable design features. Interior daylighting reduces lighting needs and therefore energy usage is reduced. Interior materials are selected based on environmental friendliness and health-related characteristics. Attention to the construction of the building envelope reduces moisture penetration and eliminates mold issues. In addition, “right sizing” of mechanical equipment helps lower operating costs, promotes fewer maintenance problems and decreases noise pollution to the surrounding area.
