Liberty First Federal Credit Union

About This Project

Liberty First Credit Union offers full service banking convenience and is a member-owned financial institution. CLH Architects designed five lanes for drive-thru teller access and a spacious walk-in lobby where natural daylight enhances the elegant interior. The project is their East branch in Lincoln, and represents their fifth credit union location. The project included site preparation and improvements on previously undeveloped land. The building exterior was composed of a brick veneer with precast stone accents. The craftsmen design incorporated sloping gabled roofs and cupola. The interior lobby has natural day-lighting facilitated by the cupola windows. The teller line is beautifully crafted with cherry wood veneer and solid surface counter tops. HVAC design incorporated a geothermal system for energy efficient heating and cooling. The exterior facade is a modern, yet traditional structure that compliments the surrounding neighborhood. Pictured is the first of three additional branches CLH Architects designed for Liberty First Credit Union.
