Freedom First Credit Union wanted an attractive and iconic new facility to serve a growing suburban area of Botetourt County. Hughes Associates A&E’s design transformed a convenience store into a new full-service branch accommodating both walk-in and drive-up banking customers.
The small site was reconfigured to provide a freestanding remote teller station, new parking, and improved circulation. Renovating, rather than tearing down the existing building, minimized the overall cost and construction time. Interior expansion allowed for a new entry, offices, and a teller line. Strategic additions and new façades provided the appealing and professional image that the client envisioned.
