Belvoir Federal unveils branch renovation with new technology
WOODBRIDGE, VA (October 22, 2014) — Belvoir Federal Credit Union, $310 Million in assets, celebrated the unveiling of its largest branch at their “Renovation Celebration” event on October 21, 2014.
The credit union hosted a day of celebrations to showcase the high-tech branch and new capabilities offered to members, including remote teller stations, instant cash recyclers, multiple teller pods for transactions, and an open office concept to promote more communication between members and frontline employees.
In addition to the modern technology in the renovation design, developed by LEVEL5, the branch offers iPads for members to use while in the branch, a café setting, and media walls for flat screen televisions to highlight the latest news, weather, and credit union information.
Patricia Kimmel, CEO/President of Belvoir Federal Credit Union, stated, “We are investing in our members and credit union’s future by designing a branch that provides the latest and most efficient technology. Our branch offers a new and personalized experience for members when they come in to see their financial partner.”
The “Renovation Celebration” event was well attended by a steady flow of members coming to visit the new branch. Throughout the day, Belvoir Federal offered members coffee and donuts in the morning, a hot dog and chip lunch with music by B101.5, and cake in the afternoon. The credit union also hosted a private event for all staff, board members, and distinguished personnel from Ft. Belvoir to attend a special afterhours ribbon cutting and hors d’oeuvres event.
Dottye Bunch, Belvoir Federal’s Facilities/Project Manager, worked closely with LEVEL5 to complete Belvoir Federal’s state of the art redesign. Dottye stated, “It’s been a pleasure working with LEVEL5 on this remodel. They listened to what we wanted for our members and built a branch that is beautiful and offers our members a unique experience.”
