Our computing "hub" is an 87,000-square-foot building with LEED Silver certification that's home to 80 employees as well as numerous high-efficiency computer systems, which securely manage our company's member information, health claim data and more.
Near Hershey, Pa., it is green from the ground up. It was built on a "sustainable" site — a location where the construction process had minimal impact on the landscape.
As with other renovations, building materials were reused and recycled during the Data Center's construction, which helped to reduce landfill waste from the project by 67 percent.
The building itself contains a portion of recycled materials as well as local materials that were manufactured or extracted within a 500-mile radius of the site.
Our Data Center's notable environmentally friendly features include:
Although the center, which was built in 2005, is three times larger than its predecessor, our electricity costs in the new larger building have remained approximately the same. In July 2012, it achieved ENERGY STAR certification, signifying that the facility is in the top 25 percent of energy efficient buildings among similar buildings nationwide.
