Empower Federal Credit Union Headquarters

Corporate Headquarters Rehabilitation

 

The project consisted of the adaptive reuse of an existing 72,000 SF manufacturing building into the Empower FCU corporate regional headquarters. The office building needed to accommodate 300 employees including growth projections.

 

The building had been unoccupied for 10 years requiring code compliance upgrades, new mechanical systems and structural modifications to allow for maximum flexibility, natural light and interior open space.

 

The program included a new entrance and reception lobby; open office space; board room and meeting areas; corporate IT center (1500+ SF) with demarc and IT testing laboratory; facility support spaces and employee amenities including cafeteria and fitness center.

 

The location of the new entrance took into account the site configuration, parking lots and the best location to feature the company’s identity to employees and visitors.

 

The design was inspired by the strategy used by the company to achieve the growth and success goals established for the company: “Happy employees bring happy members”. The office environment created for the headquarters promotes employee’s wellbeing, performance and retention,  as well as a comfortable attractive environment for visiting members.
