Greater Texas Federal Credit Union Celebrates Grand Opening

Arlington branch opens its doors with new a design


CHESTERFIELD, Mo., November 4, 2019–NewGround, a St. Louis-based innovative architecture, design, and project management firm, recently celebrated the grand opening for Greater Texas Federal Credit Union’s new branch in Arlington, Texas on Friday, October 25.

To highlight the aesthetics within Arlington’s entertainment district, the new 3,422 square foot branch features a custom bird sculpture on the front corner plaza, exterior stonework with a glass entryway, high ceilings, and neutral furniture and finishes. Texan culture shines through with wall graphics and pops of Greater Texas Federal Credit Union’s signature red, white, and blue branded colors.



The new space also includes a cash bar for conducting transactions and offers a hospitality bar across from the waiting area that showcases a digital display wall.

As a replacement for an older existing branch located just down the street, NewGround provided architecture, engineering, interior design, environmental elements, and construction management services for this new facility.

Alongside local dignitaries and members of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, NewGround’s Steve Clark, Regional Vice President, attended the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“We were honored to work with Greater Texas Federal Credit Union to design their new Arlington location, and we can’t wait to see how their members and employees enjoy their new space,” said Kevin Blair, President and CEO at NewGround.
