We are a member-owned organization existing solely to serve and protect our members in all aspects of their financial lives.
(PRWEB) May 17, 2016
Space Coast Credit Union (SCCU) celebrated the recent completion of its new 500-vehicle parking garage located at its headquarters on Wickham Road in Melbourne. Instead of the standard ribbon cutting, 135 SCCU employees and Board Members formed a human logo, organized into the shape of SCCU’s Member’s Watchdog shield, on the garage rooftop. Local drone operator, Planet Inhouse, took aerial photos and videoed the logo formation.
The photo op and celebration signified the end of phase one in the credit union’s $30 million headquarters expansion project designed to support its continued growth across the state of Florida.
“Much has changed over the last 65 years as we’ve grown from just 28 members with $372 in assets in 1951 to the 300,000-plus members with $3.8 billion in assets we serve today,” said Timothy M. Antonition, Executive Vice President of Retail Operations and Chief Operating Officer of SCCU. “One thing, however, has and always will remain constant – we are a member-owned organization existing solely to serve and protect our members in all aspects of their financial lives.”
SCCU's headquarters currently houses over 300 full-time employees, however the three new building expansions will allow the credit union to add up to 600 new jobs over time. The project also aims to include significant improvements to traffic patterns along a heavily-populated portion of Wickham Road.
In addition to the Melbourne headquarters, the credit union has an operations facility in Miramar, Florida that holds nearly 100 employees, plus more than 250 branch personnel at its 58 locations. In total, SCCU employs over 750 Floridians, and is actively recruiting for a variety of positions throughout its branches, at its Melbourne Headquarters, and at its Miramar operations facility.
Construction for phase two of the expansion project – a three-story, 45,000 square-foot addition to the existing 83,000 square-foot headquarters building with a sky bridge connecting the existing building to the newly completed parking garage – is already underway and expected to be finished late-2017.
SCCU has chosen Melbourne-based Building Management Systems (BMS), a locally owned contracting company that has been operating in the community for more than 30 years, to lead its expansion project. The two sides have been working together for nearly three years planning, designing and engineering the overall expansion which will exceed 353,000 square-feet upon completion.
Space Coast Credit Union was chartered in 1951 and is headquartered in Melbourne, Florida. The credit union serves more than 300,000 members with assets of over $3.8 billion through a network of 58 branches and over 100 ATMs located throughout Florida and through its website sccu.com. Space Coast Credit Union is open for membership to anyone who lives or works in the fourteen Florida counties it serves. Locations can be found at sccu.com/locations.
