Empower Federal Credit Union

Renovation of Existing Building

The Syracuse-based credit union was looking to expand into the Western New York area. An existing building was purchased and extensive restoration was performed to meet the needs of the membership. Lehigh worked closely with Empower headquarters to identify details of the facility use, membership access and traffic flow patterns. Drive-thru teller lines were established, the main lobby was renovated and the entire office space was redesigned. Weekly meetings and continuous communication allowed Empower headquarters to remotely manage critical aspects of the project from Syracuse, resulting in a smooth design and construction schedule.
