Neighbor’s Federal Credit Union provides retail financial services in nine parishes to its member/owners.  In 2004 NFCU, along with design professional Crump, Wilson and general contractor Mike Grand, began a multi-year expansion plan to address the current and future needs of its members as well as a complete re-branding of their organization.  CWA and Grand jointly developed the new branch prototype concept, including a light and spacious welcome area, smaller intimate areas for individual sales consultations, and an easily- identifiable exterior brand. New branches in Zachary and Denham Springs were constructed in 2005.


In February 2006, Grand Construction Company began construction on the third new branch on Howell Drive in Baton Rouge.  As with the others, the building features a 22’ high central arcade supported by steel columns, expansive windows at both ends and along the top of each side, and product sales areas on either side of the arcade.  The exterior combines features masonry and stucco alongside the window system, producing a striking and unique new brand for NFCU.  Other features include a shallow foundation with intersecting grade beams, custom interior finishes and millwork, state-of-the-art banking communications and data systems, and provisions for future expansion of the drive-through lanes. Construction was completed in November 2006, on-schedule.
