Triangle Federal Credit Union Announces Renovations for New Branch Office in West Point, MS
Triangle Federal Credit Union recently announced that renovations are underway for its new branch office in West Point, Mississippi, located at 7290 Highway 45 Alternate.
“We are very appreciative of our existing members across Lowndes, Clay, and Oktibbeha counties, and we are excited about the renovation of our West Point location and its impact on expanding those relationships,” said John Gibbons, Jr., President and CEO of Triangle Federal Credit Union. “We are confident that the West Point branch will meet the needs of the community and exceed our members’ expectations.”
The existing 2,600-square-foot single-story building will have a striking red brick exterior along with a split-faced block wainscot, brick columns, and a roof canopy to help modernize the look of the building. There will also be the addition of a new drive-up canopy and additional exterior materials to complement Triangle Federal Credit Union’s Starkville, Mississippi, branch office.
The interior will be remodeled with modern finishes and warm neutral tones throughout. New light fixtures and additional windows will be added to brighten the space, giving it a more open and welcoming atmosphere. Additional interior features include a new three-teller station, extended ceilings, and the construction of a wall between the teller area and break room to form a new workroom.
Triangle Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1959 under the name of Columbus Air Force Base Federal Credit Union to serve the active and retired military personnel of CAFB. In October of 2004, CAFB FCU expanded its service area to include Lowndes, Clay, and Oktibbeha counties. In January 2006, CAFB FCU was renamed Triangle Federal Credit Union to better reflect its ever-growing field of membership, which includes more than 15,000 members nationwide.
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 is executing 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.
“We have worked with Eclipse Brand Builders on two previous branch locations in Starkville and East Columbus, and we have built a great relationship with them,” said Gibbons, Jr. “These projects were successful, on time, and within budget and are a big reason we have once again chosen to work with Eclipse on the new West Point renovation.”
