3Rivers Federal Credit Union Opens Northland Campus
FORT WAYNE, IN (July 24, 2013) — Today Momentum, a national design-build firm, and 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, announced the opening of their new Northland Campus which includes renovations to its main building, a new adjacent corporate facility and a redesigned bank branch.
The $15 million dollar investment has resulted in a 26,000 square foot open-concept headquarters allowing 3Rivers to better serve its membership. The newly constructed East Building houses several corporate departments, as well as the redesigned Northland branch. The completely renovated West Building contains additional support personnel, call center, and drive-thru. The entire Northland campus was transformed to create an innovative and efficient space for 3Rivers team members to continue to help the community find personalized solutions for their money matters.
The campus was designed to meet the United States Green Building Council 2009 LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Silver certification level in new construction and renovation. Supported by 107 tons of locally fabricated steel, the new campus contains state-of-the-art electrical and mechanical systems for increased energy efficiency, user controllability, and system lifespan. Break-out meeting and collaboration spaces, connected to advanced IT and audiovisual systems will enhance the ability of the 3Rivers team members to communicate quickly and efficiently, maximizing benefits to 3Rivers members. Site landscaping design lends a campus feel to the project with maximized green open space, casual outdoor seating areas, and even a walking trail.
Momentum oversaw the design, construction and implementation of the project. “This project demonstrates 3Rivers’ commitment to the community, its employees and its members, and its continuing commitment to green building. With 6 LEED certified buildings, 3Rivers is the largest owner and manager of LEED certified financial institutions in the state of Indiana and we’re proud to be a part of it”, said Bob Saunders LEED AP BD+C, EVP of Construction Services for Momentum.
On July 24th, representatives from 3Rivers, Momentum and the Fort Wayne community will gather for a formal groundbreaking ceremony. “3Rivers is proud of our growth and the commitment from our membership that has led to this Northland Campus expansion,” said 3Rivers CEO Don Cates. “The completion of our Northland Campus better positions 3Rivers to work collaboratively and more efficiently by having our service and support teams centrally located to better serve current and future members.”
