WOLFEBORO — To celebrate its 5th anniversary in Wolfeboro, Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) will be hosting an Open House and Business After Hours on Wednesday, September 25. All members of the community are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served during business hours. From 5-7 p.m. the bank will be hosting a Business After Hours in conjunction with the Wolfeboro Area Chamber of Commerce.
MVSB's Wolfeboro office, located at 66 North Main Street, was designed by Tom Samyn of Samyn-D'Elia Architects and officially opened for business on September 26, 2008.
Built with extensive use of woods and warm tones, the building catches the eye while fitting in with its North Main Street neighbors and was an aesthetic improvement for a location formerly occupied by an abandoned gas station. The interior is warm and inviting and its decorations are representative of Wolfeboro and its surrounding lakefront area.
Located in such close proximity to Lake Winnipesaukee, environmental impact was a top priority in building design. Super insulation and a ground source heat pump are used to control the temperature throughout the branch. In the winter, heat is provided through radiant heat tubing embedded in the floors, including the sidewalk outside both entrances to reduce ice and snow build up. The parking lot's pervious pavement was also installed with the local environment in mind. By capturing storm water and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater and reducing potentially damaging storm water runoff.
