El Paso Teachers Federal Credit Union, Operations Center
El Paso, Texas
32,000 square feet
Currently under construction and on schedule to be fully completed in Spring of 2018, The Redmond Company has designed and is building a new Operations Center for the El Paso Teachers Federal Credit Union in El Paso, Texas.
This two-story, 32,000-square foot facility will accommodate the Credit Union’s current employees and allows for room and growth for the next 10 years. When fully utilized, the building will be able to house a projected 180 employees.
The Operations Center has numerous design features to encourage a healthy and collaborative workplace. A centrally-located cafe will act as a social hub and greeting space for the building. A spacious break room will act as a retreat from workstations and will offer employees ample daylight and varying seating options. LED lighting will be incorporated throughout the facility as a ‘green’ solution to lighting, while natural daylighting floods the building with light and outdoor views from all open and private office spaces. The work spaces will have furniture featuring ergonomically-designed solutions, including sit-stand elements. The multiple conference rooms of varying sizes will provide the Credit Union with greatly-needed meeting space. The interior design of the Operations Center have been described as “playful”, providing employees an interesting work environment.
The construction of this project will utilize more than 50 local construction companies, suppliers, and vendors and will employ over 150 local tradespeople. Nearly 90% of the project costs will be reinvested in the firms that live and work in the El Paso area.
