Project Update: Upstate Federal Credit Union

March 21st, 2024

Consultants and Builders, Inc. has begun the site work, grading, and retention pond in partnership with Anderson, SC based Upstate Federal Credit Union for their new prototype branch located near the LaFrance Industries Division of Mount Vernon Mills off Clemson Boulevard/Highway 76 in Pendleton.

The new branch will be the second built by CBI for the credit union and will utilize Teller Pods, new marketing, digital displays, and timeless furnishings. The unique exterior design of this 3,565 square foot, free-standing branch will echo the traditional architectural lines found at many of Upstate’s existing branches while incorporating transitional design elements to maximize visibility and marketing opportunities. The design includes three drive up lanes with a traditional drive-up window as well as advanced ITMs for members. Ultimately the long-term goal is to incorporate some of the newer design and finish elements of the Pendleton branch at Upstate’s existing branches. CBI looks forward to the collaboration, and further progress with Upstate Federal Credit Union to ensure their strategic growth initiatives are a continued success.

Project Update: Pinnacle Credit Union Branch

February 26th, 2024

Pinnacle Credit Union’s Benjamin E. Mays Branch in the Cascade Heights District of City of Atlanta, Georgia reaches the renovation finish line and the community is greatly pleased with the results as well as the newly located Pinnacle Credit Union!

Facebook posting this week from a local neighbor: “Cascade Heights is winning! A credit union recently RESTORED (!!!) this beautiful old bank in our retail district. I believe that it was built as a Fulton Federal Savings & Loan in the 1960s. We are so fortunate that the new owners have completely respected the mid century architecture and no gray paint!” – 130 likes and climbing.


CBI always followed through with what they said would be done and when they said it would be done. I would highly recommend CBI to any company looking to design and build a financial institution.
