Last week, Cape Cod 5 celebrated the grand opening of their new “HQ5” on Route 132 in Barnstable. The 80,000 square foot headquarters will be home to over 300 employees and has been designed with employee wellness and sustainability in mind. Amenities within the 11-acre campus include a 217 car parking garage, walking trails, fitness center, community room, and outdoor courtyard. The new building also features over 16,000 square feet of solar panels on the roof which could generate over 400,000 kilowatts each year. Bridging the gap between sustainability and employee wellness the building also features View Glass throughout, which will automatically tint to allow in maximum natural light for the bank’s employees while cutting down on the need for artificial lighting and reducing HVAC costs. “This new campus serves as a physical symbol of Cape Cod 5’s ongoing investment in and service to the unique communities of the Cape, Islands and Southeastern Massachusetts,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, Chair and CEO of Cape Cod 5. “The foundation of this headquarters building is actually the mission and values that have driven this Bank for 165 years. Its innovative elements and advanced technologies will propel us to the future so we can continue to meet the evolving needs of our customers, community members, and employees for decades to come.”
