One of the tellers stated so many members come into the branch and say, “I feel so at home.”  We feel that the members are comfortable in the space because we transformed it from a dark and dated space to a clean, bright, and functional environment: all without losing the warmth the credit union naturally conveys. We collaborated with the client on developing design elements which are engaging, and which match the client’s cutting-edge marketing efforts. This collaboration translated in design as the engaging blue sky and cloud wallcovering, the prominently displayed core values on the waiting area wall, the inviting and open nature of the teller pod concept and the use of dynamic marketing via flat screen display.  Read more…

LGE Community Credit Union recently celebrated the opening of the credit union’s newest branch in Canton, GA. The Canton branch is the first branch CBI has constructed for LGE from the ground up.

This was initiated at the Roswell, GA branch and has been so successful that the credit union decided to implement the concept in the Canton, GA branch.

The new branch is 4,000 sq.ft. and features advanced function ATMs for all transactions along with engagement stations nearby for meeting with members to discuss their financial needs.

LGE Community Credit Union Opens New Branch

March 5, 2014

LGE Community Credit Union recently celebrated the grand opening of their new location in Roswell, GA. CBI designed and built the new 3,342 SF facility which offers an open branch environment combining self-service and personal interactions. The Roswell branch is the first of the next generation of financial centers for LGE. The delivery model for this branch relies solely on ATMs to handle the most routine transactions, allowing the credit union’s employees to inform, promote, and educate members about the benefits of their products. Employees are trained on those aspects of the business and not on handling transactions like in the past. LGE Community Credit Union feels that soon they will be able to completely eliminate the ATM machines, as remote capture, direct deposit and the capabilities of mobile devices make transactions easier to process outside of the branch.


As it turned out, CBI was not only our contractor, they were also our partners in the project. From start to finish they were attentive and thorough.
