08.14.2015 - GeoVista Credit Union Breaks Ground on New Main Office in Hinesville, Georgia

Hinesville, GA, August 14, 2015 – Local and state officials today joined credit union officials to celebrate the ground breaking of GeoVista Credit Union’s new main office in Hinesville, Georgia, at the intersection of West Oglethorpe Highway and Link Street, adjacent to their existing temporary facilities.

"We are extremely excited to move forward with this project," said Elaine Tuten, CEO of GeoVista Credit Union. "With this new office, we will be able to expand our service capabilities and offer a better experience to credit union members and employees in the Hinesville area."

The new 3,400 square-foot office will feature 3 lobby teller stations, a coin counting machine, private lending center access, children’s area, waiting area with coffee bar, 2 full-service drive-up teller lanes and a 24-hour ATM lane for added member convenience.

"It’s a great feeling to watch the Credit Union grow," adds Tuten. "It is the ultimate goal of GeoVista Credit Union to make sure our members get the highest quality service and facilities possible."

Eclipse Brand Builders was selected to provide turnkey design-build services for the project, including architecture, engineering, interior design and full-time on-site construction management. Eclipse will execute the construction of the project using local sub-contractors and local suppliers for all labor and building materials through a competitive bid process, keeping construction dollars in the community.

Founded in 1964 to provide banking services to military personnel and employees at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield, GeoVista Credit Union is now a community chartered, not-for-profit financial institution that offers financial services to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Bryan, Bulloch, Chatham, Effingham or Liberty counties in Georgia.

Credit Union officials estimate that the new office will be open for business by the end of 2015.
