Your Neighbourhood Credit Union – Kitchener, ON.
Construction Method: Design – Build
Completion Date: November 2009
Gross Floor Area: 21, 043 sq.ft.
Scope of Project:
The exterior design of Your Neighbourhood Credit Union’s 2-storey head office building has a timeless architecture to it. The ¾ high stone piers with accented light fixtures suggest an earlier colonial style, while the large glazing units and aluminum canopy entrances add a modern twist. Inside, the Schiedel team was successful in creating a healthy, comfortable and green work environment. As you enter the building a 2-storey open concept lobby greets you with lots of natural light. Throughout the building you will also find every workstation and office is provided with natural light and landscaped views. Some of the main features to highlight are the hardwood wainscoting and crown molding in the board room. In the lobby there is a passenger elevator providing access to the whole building. On the second floor facing the forest is an employee work out room with accessible showers and change rooms. When designing the security lighting outside, the goals of creating minimal light pollution and accenting the stone facade were both achieved. Overall, the design of the site and building exceeded all the clients’ goals and created a home base for Your Neighbourhood Credit Union for many years to come.
“Your Neighbourhood Credit Union contracted Schiedel Construction to construct a 21,000 sq.ft. office building to be completed by December 1st, 2009. The building was completed as of November 1st, 2009 and was completed for the agreed upon contracted price. The Project Manager and Site Supervisor were excellent to work with. They both suggested positive changes throughout the project and the construction of the building could not have gone smoother. The workmanship was excellent and we have received many compliments from visitors over the past 2 years over the appearance of the building. Based on the experience and the level of service we received during the construction of this Corporate Office, we have hired Schiedel Construction to build a new Credit Union branch as well as renovate others. I have no hesitation over highly recommending Schiedel Construction.”
