The Challenge

Libro Credit Union and NewGround have a partnership stretching back over 30 years. Over this time, NewGround has done branch studies and ideations, established Libro’s current brand presence, and designed over half of Libro’s branch system. As Libro expanded, NewGround found a new building for its headquarters in what was once a major depot for the Canadian Post.

The Journey

This building was repurposed and given a fresh, modern look, with each floor being remodeled as tenants moved out and Libro expanded into the space. The gem of this expansion was the new technology floor, which now provides a cutting-edge work environment that can attract and retain skilled talent.

The Destination

We’ve worked with Libro Credit Union through branch build-outs, mergers, and several head office renovations. The design was so successful that the prototype was rolled out to 20+ branches all over Canada.
