CDC Federal Credit Union Selects CBI to Design and Build New Branch

November 9, 2020

Atlanta, GA based CDC Federal Credit Union, established in 1949, has chosen Consultants and Builders, Inc. to design, build, and furnish a new prototype branch located in the Northlake Mall area near I-285 within the City of Tucker.  The new branch will be the first free standing building built for the credit union and will utilize Teller Pods, ITM’s, heavy marketing and digital displays, and contemporary furnishings. The exceptional branch site is an out-parcel located near a major high traffic intersection in a rapidly growing commercial corridor enabling further expansion and market presence for the CDC FCU.  The unique exterior design of this 3,000 square foot, free-standing branch exhibits contemporary lines with warm earth tone materials reflective of the nearby growing community while the tower entrance element maximizes visibility and marketing opportunities.  The design includes two drive up lanes with advanced ITMs for Members. The efficient design lowers construction cost, while the integration of advanced technology maximizes operational efficiency and return on investment. CBI will also renovate a portion of the Main Office once their branch services are relocated to the new Northlake Mall site. We look forward to the partnership, collaboration, and further progress with the CDC Federal Credit Union to ensure their strategic growth initiatives are a continued success.

Consultants and Builders, Inc., based in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, was selected to provide design services, architecture, interior design, engineering, furnishings, construction and equipment. CBI has a proven track record of handling small and large projects across a geographic area simultaneously and provides full project management services while using local subcontractors.

Project Update: CORE Credit Union

Congratulations to CORE Credit Union as we near completion of their newly renovated North Main Street branch in Statesboro, Georgia. Our final walkthrough went well with Robert “Bob” Clampett, CORE Credit Union CEO, noting that he was “Ecstatic with the results, it was much better than he could have imagined, and wished CORE CU had explored this transformation potential much earlier.” The renovations are easily recognizable as signature elements echo the recent collaboration and completion of their Bermuda Run Main Office in the Statesboro Market District.

We are proud to have served as their Design/Build partner for this beautiful project and on future collaborations.
