The Driftmier Architects designed a new main facility for Community Healthcare Federal Credit Union and construction of the project was completed ahead of schedule this summer. Arcon Builders LLC was the general contractor. The new facility is a remodel of a former Greyhound bus station and was completely transformed to an updated credit union with an open and friendly feel. The new 3,970 SF facility includes an open lobby with three stand-up teller stations and one sit-down teller station, two workstations in the lobby with room for two additional workstations in the future. The design includes one private office, meeting room, board room, lunch room and restrooms.
Community Healthcare Federal Credit Union (CHFCU) has moved from their previous location on Broadway in Everett, also designed by The Driftmier Architects, to the new facility at 1503 Pacific Ave. CHFCU was interested in a new location that increased their visibility and still provided a convenient location for their members. The Driftmier Architects worked with the credit union on a market analysis to determine an optimal location for the new facility. Once a potential site was located, a site evaluation and feasibility study was conducted. As design started, The Driftmier Architects also worked with CHFCU to analyze the credit union’s needs and develop a design program for the project.
Consultants working on the project included B&T Design & Engineering, Inc (structural) and the Van de Vanter Group (landscape architecture).
