NewGround Breaks Ground on Maui County Federal Credit Union Headquarters

Community-based credit union facility to be built

CHESTERFIELD, Mo., December 10, 2020–NewGround, a St. Louis-based innovative architecture, design, and project management firm, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Maui County Federal Credit Union’s (FCU) new headquarters in Wailuku, Maui, Hawaii.

Providing site selection assistance, due diligence investigation, and construction management services, NewGround will help bring Maui County FCU’s new 26,183 square foot headquarters building to life. Being developed on two acres of land, the facility will include a branch with a two-lane drive-thru, a covered outdoor lanai off the staff break room, a large meeting space that can serve as a community room, and a fitness center. The new headquarters building was designed by EHA, NewGround’s Honolulu-based design partner.

With previous extensive design and build work with credit unions in Hawaii, NewGround will work with local consultants, subcontractors, and suppliers to complete the project and better serve the community-based credit union.

Groundbreaking ceremony attendees from NewGround included Regional Vice President Tom White, Project Manager Monica Pangaribuan, and Senior Project Superintendent Robert Escalante.

“We are thrilled to finally break ground on Maui County FCU’s new headquarters, and we can’t wait to bring their vision to life,” said Kevin Blair, President and CEO at NewGround. “Our next-generation headquarters expertise will allow our team to deliver this stunning facility, helping Maui County FCU better serve their members for years to come.”

Maui County FCU’s new headquarters building is anticipated to be complete by mid-2022.
