Charter Oak Federal Credit Union Banks on Lumetta for Successfully Illuminating Their New Headquarters
Charter Oak Federal Credit Union’s headquarters in Waterford, CT recently constructed a $19 million complex in New London County. The recently completed building replaces the headquarters’ previous location and includes a branch with drive-thru teller. The construction project is the largest expansion since the credit union’s founding in 1939.
Point One Architects of Old Lyme, and CLA Engineers, Inc. of Norwich were commissioned to provide architectural and engineering services for the 10-acre, 65,000-square-foot complex. The structure features large glass windows for extensive sunlight, as well as a distinctive architectural style, with a curved roof, brick-and-glass exterior, and an expansive, two-story atrium.
Lumetta was contracted to provide decorative commercial lighting, including a range of our Surface Mount Shadow Drums in D48 Spice, D921 Shadow Cool, D72 Glass Copper, and D11 Grass. Also designated in the installation were our Pendant Shadow Drums in D142 Almond, D864 Walnut, D48 Spice, D148 Mist, and Teal, in addition to our Pendant Shadow Cylinders in D921 Shadow Cool, and Shadow Table Lamps in D921 Shadow Cool and Teal.
The extensive range of Lumetta Shadow luminaires fitted for the project made for an impressive statement installation. Our Shadow Collection is one of the most requested lighting solutions and is favored for its juxtaposition of proprietary materials; translucent TransLumenate® shades layered over diffusing Lumenate® shades. The welded steel / aluminum construction and use of our washable and antimicrobial Lumenate® makes these luminaires aesthetically appealing and pragmatically functional.
