The new building that houses the office of Drs. Randolph Dickey, John Singleton and Sean Lynch is the first green dental office built with Passivhaus technology, according to a press release from Structures Design Build.
A ribbon cutting will be held Wednesday at the new location on Franklin Road in Roanoke. According to Dr. F. Randolph Dickey, the dentists have been operating in the new building since Jan. 21.
Structures constructed the office that uses triple pane windows, heating and cooling energy recovery systems, and a fresh air ventilation system to reduce the amount of energy used to operate the building.
The press release said Passivhaus technology reduces a building’s energy usage by 70 percent.
