Here is a quick snapshot of different branch and headquarter designs: Pacific North West Federal Credit Union, Portland, Ore., has awarded DEI, Inc. a contract to renovate their main office. Riverside County's Credit Union, Calif., has broken ground on a new Operations and Technology center. The three-story, 62,000 square-foot building will consolidate all of the credit union's operations including administrative and training activities in one building. Construction is expected to be completed by February 2002. Seven Seventeen Credit Union's (Warren, Ohio) new Corporate Operations Center is a four-story, 40,000 square-foot building heated and cooled with a Geo-Thermal system. Designed by architectural firm Baker, Bednar & Associates and built by Jack Gibson Construction Company, this earth-friendly building also includes a glass-enclosed bridge to the adjacent credit union member service center. Other features include a three-story atrium entrance, new employee training room, PC training room and an on-site meeting room capable of hosting at least 200 people. Norton Community Credit Union, San Bernadino, Calif., has built the first new, from-the-ground-up building at San Bernadino International Airport since the Air Force base closed in 1994. The 16,600 square-foot building is loaded with amenities including separate work areas for accounting employees; an employee kitchen with two refrigerators; indoor/outdoor dining areas; drive-up windows; a skylight for back office employees; employee showers and a community meeting room. R.C. Olmstead, Inc., Ohio's largest credit union data processor, will celebrate the opening of their new headquarters with an official building dedication. The 18,000 square-foot facility sits next to the Ohio Credit Union League's building and boasts an impressive array of Asian art from the personal collection of Robert C. Olmstead. Among the numerous pieces displayed on the grounds are the building's signature bronzed dolphins that seem to spring out to greet visitors and a one-ton bronze elephant, so large it had to be placed in the building before doorframes were constructed, stands guard in the second floor lobby.
