President's Column: Wade Hampton branch renovation is in full-swing.
Our new drive-up teller facility is currently being built next to our existing Wade Hampton Branch with a target completion date of year end. The facility will have four drive-through lanes, an ATM lane, an exit lane and full access to the parking lot and existing branch building. The new building will have the same architectural look of the existing building giving the property a campus-like feel. With twice the number of drive-through lanes and a full staff of dedicated tellers, this new facility will provide our Wade Hampton visitors a much more efficient and convenient option to make simple transactions.
Improvements to the driveway and parking lot will begin by moving the entrance on Wade Hampton Boulevard further north to line up with Karen Drive on the other side of the street. The parking lot construction, to begin in late November to early December, will definitely cause some disruption and inconvenience. We will try to limit this as best we can and we ask for your patience during the process. We are confident that you will appreciate the improvements when complete.
Renovations to the existing branch building will begin after the first of the year. During construction the building will be open for loans and new accounts in temporary surroundings with very limited teller availability. If you do need teller transaction service, we really encourage you to give our new drive-up teller facility a try – we are sure you will be impressed with the level of service and efficiency.
The last step of the renovation will be to knock down the bridge that has been a major safety concern for many of our members. The new entrance will provide a safe entry way into the branch directly from the parking lot and members will no longer have to walk across drive-up traffic to get inside.
We will provide construction updates on our website throughout the improvements to the Wade Hampton Branch. While there will be disruption over these coming months, we know that you will be proud of your new facility when it is complete. We invite you to visit our other newly renovated branches to get a feel for what you can expect when the Wade Hampton project is finished. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your patience as we complete this monumental, but necessary task.
President, Greenville Federal Credit Union
