Located in Niles, Michigan and utilizing the existing site, The Redmond Company designed the 27,000 sf, two-story building as the United Federal Credit Union operations center. The new facility serves as the regional administrative office for the growing financial institution.
The soaring two-story lobby incorporates full height glass which floods the interior space with natural light. Amenities such as a coffee area and casual seating help to make it the “hub” of the operation center’s activity. Additionally, several smaller flexible open gathering zones throughout the building promote impromptu meetings and collaboration. The interior work spaces are open and flexible with private offices on the building perimeter. The credit union’s core administrative functions are housed towards the center of the building. These design concepts work collectively to ensure the majority of the building’s occupants have a clear, sun-drenched view of the exterior.
The Redmond Company has completed over 20 projects for UFCU.
