Alabama ONE Credit Union Selects CBI for Montgomery Branch Prototype

September 30th, 2021

Alabama ONE Credit Union has chosen Consultants and Builders, Inc. to design their new prototype micro-branch with their first planned location in the Montgomery area near Chantilly Parkway. The new branch will be the first built for the credit union utilizing Teller Pods, MSR/Consult Kiosks, ITM’s, re-envisioned marketing, digital displays, and contemporary furnishings. The potential branch site is located near a major high traffic intersection in a rapidly growing suburban corridor enabling further expansion and market presence for Alabama ONE.  The unique exterior design of this 2,300 square foot, free-standing branch exhibits contemporary lines with the warm color palette that is a signature of the credit union and reflective of the nearby growing community. The Member branch entrance and recognizable pillar signage elements maximize visibility and marketing opportunities for the credit union. The design includes two CBI designed prototype drive up ITMs for Members as created for other branch installations earlier this year. The efficient design lowers construction cost, while the integration of advanced technology maximizes operational efficiency and return on investment. CBI has been chosen to partner with Alabama ONE on a number of projects and we look forward to the continued collaboration.
