SECU to open new branch in Statesville in August
BY HALEY JONES
A new State Employee Credit Union office will be constructed near the Marquee Cinemas at 767 Eastside Drive.
The credit union has 27 new branches in various stages of design and construction throughout North Carolina.
“SECU looks forward to offering two Statesville locations, providing additional convenience and greater access for members in the area,” SECU spokewoman Sandra Jones said.
The 8,500-square-foot location will employ about 14 staff members.
Summit Design and Engineering Services, PLLC is the engineer/architect for the project.
“It took many years to develop, but we worked closely with the SECU on the exterior and interior design,” said Brian Shepard, the firm’s Architecture Department manager. “The design intent of the exterior was to use classic materials and forms while employing modern building science techniques such as natural daylighting and high performance thermal envelope (with the roof, walls and floor). The interior is a large volume filled with modern and traditional design elements where glass walls juxtapose classic millwork.”
The new location is expected to open in August.
