Redstone Federal Credit Union and its project partners recently topped out the new Redstone Federal Credit Union downtown branch building, with the final structural beam being hoisted into place.
Company officials with Robins & Morton, the KPS Group and trade contractors took part in Huntsville under sunny skies. Holding with tradition, a small fir tree, along with an American flag, were hoisted to the top floor.
When complete, the 66,718-square-foot building will stand five stories, adjacent to a new, four-story parking deck. Its exterior design will feature glass and metal panels, adding a modern aesthetic to the downtown cityscape.
According to a Redstone statement, the facility will be made up of 8,627 cubic yards of concrete, 670 tons of rebar, and 40,000 square feet of glass.
“We appreciate the diligence and hard work of each and everyone who have worked on this project,” Joe Newberry, Redstone’s President and CEO, said. “All total, more than 100 people have worked to construct a building that we can all be proud of.”
With more than $5.1 billion in assets, Redstone Federal Credit Union serves more than 453,000 members. Robins & Morton is a privately held construction firm based in Birmingham with additional offices throughout the Southeast.
