Neches Federal Credit Union Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony

NewGround will design new Port Neches main office


CHESTERFIELD, Mo., February 22, 2019–NewGround, a St. Louis-based innovative architecture, design, and delivery firm, recently celebrated the groundbreaking for Neches Federal Credit Union’s (FCU) new main office in Port Neches, Texas.

The new two-story 49,313 square foot space will feature a state-of-the-art contact center with multiple conference rooms, along with a hard and soft training room. Hoteling offices, quiet rooms, and a mothers’ room will also be near the contact center.

In addition to a café-style employee break room, the building will include a fitness center and covered patio to provide employees with areas for a place to recharge.



The headquarters will house a small automated branch. Part of the long-term vision and planning is to allow for Neches FCU’s future expansion plans to build a second two-story 50,000 square foot addition to their main office.

NewGround services for the project includes long-term personnel and space projections, architecture and interior design, project development, and construction management.

M.C. Milsaps, NewGround’s Project Manager, attended the groundbreaking ceremony alongside other Neches FCU representatives.



“NewGround is honored that Neches FCU looked to us to serve as the preferred partner for their new main office, and we are thrilled to break ground on their new state-of-the art space,” said Kevin Blair, President and CEO of NewGround.
