San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
San Francisco Federal Credit Union, a San Francisco mortgage lender that also provides financial planning, is celebrating the grand reopening of its main branch on Sept. 27, starting at 10 a.m. Located at 770 Golden Gate Ave., the renovations at the main branch will help the location better serve its existing members and welcome prospective members.
“This updated, full-service branch will help create the type of brand experience we feel each member is entitled to,” Steven Stapp, president/CEO of San Francisco Federal Credit Union, said. “We're hoping to be more convenient for our members and be able to attract new members to this beautiful new branch.”
During the day-long celebration on Sept. 27, members will receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the new facility and the chance to win prizes throughout the day.
Renovations started in November 2011 and completed in August 2012. Although the office remained open during the construction, updates were completed to both the exterior and interior spaces at the branch. The renovations included a new lobby, and a new training room for employee and member education.
The newly opened second floor adds nearly 12,300 square-feet to the branch's total service area. In addition, the branch incorporated green design technologies during construction to greatly increase energy efficiency and reduce the location’s environmental footprint.
“We are proud of our rich history in San Francisco and the new branch really plays up landmarks in San Francisco to bring to life the San Francisco community--the ballpark, city hall, St. Mary’s Cathedral and Orpheum Theater. Not the regular touristy landmarks but places that are well-known to San Franciscans,” Elaine Lee of San Francisco Federal Credit Union said.
The building remodeling that incorporates the updated brand will continue across the credit union’s other branches.
San Francisco Federal Credit Union worked with NewGround to complete the remodel. NewGround is a leading global company that imagines, designs, and implements retail and corporate environments that drive competitive advantage. It is headquartered in St. Louis, Mo.
