Chartway Federal Credit Union Celebrates Grand Opening

NewGround project opens new Suffolk branch



CHESTERFIELD, Mo., June 6, 2019–NewGround, a St. Louis-based innovative architecture, design, and delivery firm, recently celebrated Chartway Federal Credit Union’s (FCU) grand opening of their new branch in Suffolk, Va. on Wednesday, May 29.

NewGround provided design-delivery and retail merchandising services for this 3,000-square foot Obici Place end cap branch and features a cash bar, 24-hour vestibule, remote ITM in the parking lot, and has a fully-branded design.

Located in a brand-new shopping center currently under construction, this new space mirrors a similar look and feel as other newly-designed Chartway FCU branches in Lynnhaven, Southern, and Grantsville.

The grand opening event featured Chartway FCU’s We Promise Foundation and introduced a special guest, Parker, who had his wish to go to Disney World granted by Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia and We Promise. Brian Schools, President and CEO at Chartway FCU, also surprised Parker with his own We Promise Monster Truck.

“We were honored to work with Chartway FCU to design and deliver their new Suffolk location, and we look forward to continuing to partner with the credit union on future projects,” said Kevin Blair, President and CEO of NewGround.
