Lexington, Ky. – As credit unions continue to increase their memberships nationwide, the University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union (UKFCU) is no exception. In order to meet the needs of its nearly 63,000 members, the credit union recently broke ground for its sixth location.
In November, UK Federal Credit Union senior management held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new branch, which will be located on the corner of Tates Creek and Wilson Downing. Construction of the building will begin soon with doors opening in early 2016. The new facility will offer more convenient access to members in the south area of Lexington, with office hours available six days a week. “With a large number of current and potential members residing in the area and the fact that it sits at a major intersection in Lexington, this is an ideal location for our newest branch”, said UKFCU President/CEO, David Kennedy. “We continue to enjoy very strong growth, and we are committed to increasing member convenience across multiple delivery channels.”
UKFCU has partnered with local vendors, JRA Architects for the design and Congleton-Hacker Co. for construction for its new branch.
For almost 70 years, JRA Architects has created high-quality architectural designs that reflect a dedication to the community and creativity. Launched in 1946 by Ernst Johnson, JRA Architects maintains its high standards of craftsmanship and attention to detail, which will contribute UKFCU’s state-of-art financial facility.
