29 Apr Veridian Credit Union – Ansborough Facility in Waterloo, IA
The goal of this 2019 Veridian Credit Union project is to freshen up the look of an outdated building and give the branch an architecturally interesting exterior. This is Veridian Credit Union’s original branch dating back to the 1970s, and while there was a recent interior remodel, the exterior has not been updated in over 40 years.
This project gives prominence to the main entry with a new metal panel portal. In rethinking the front entry, the solution was both aesthetic as well as functional. It addresses an addition done to the building in the 1990s, which created some confusion as to where members should enter the building. The old standing seam metal façade treatment is being replaced with bright and fresh fiber cement panels.
Managing lead times will be top of mind for our project management team, as much of the project will be coordinating with subcontractors for materials. Locally sourced stone and materials are being used.
This exterior remodel, with small front entry additional and renovation, includes new landscaping to update the credit union’s building. Construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.
