The Union Bank Co. former operations center downtown was in three separate buildings. They had outgrown their old space, and it also lacked a layout conducive to a productive workflow.
They hired K4 for their design services for the new Operations Center; featuring a large board room and training room, and a large storage area for record retention.
The exterior design focuses on a tower feature at the main entrance similar to their Bowling Green and Ottawa Branch reinforcing the brand created by K4 years earlier. The height of the tower creates a visual beacon for their members to identify with their Credit Union.
“The K4 design team is flexible in putting together floor plans, outside appearance & color schemes that meet your needs while continuing a company theme for customer recognition. They also worked within our budget limits and provided us with ideas we would never would have thought about or considered. Mike and Shannon never said no, we can’t do that. Instead, they showed us options and kept providing us with different designs and colors. The staff working in the new operations center truly enjoy the accessibility to each other as a team, the brightness of the interior and constant level of temperature in the building. Union Bank Company will definitely consider K4 for any future new building or remodeling projects. Their attention to details and work to meet our needs is unsurpassed.”
