"We are thrilled to be breaking ground in Rincon," said Dale Taratuta, President and CEO of Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union. "This location will enable us to enhance the level of service and convenience we can offer to current and prospective credit union members in Effingham County."

Georgia Heritage Federal Credit UnionFounded in 1940 to provide banking services to employees working at the Savannah paper factory, Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union has grown and expanded its field of membership as a community chartered, not-for-profit financial institution that now offers financial services to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Chatham, Effingham or Bryan counties in Georgia.

"Plans for this project have been in the works for some time," adds Taratuta. "It is exciting to see those plans being put into motion, and for us to continue to strive to make a difference in our community, and in the lives of our members."

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.

Credit Union officials estimate that the new office will be open for business in the spring of 2018.
