It doesn’t get much better than delivering an exceptional project ahead of schedule. For Hickory, that was exactly the case with Alcoa Tenn Federal Credit Union’s new Eagleton Branch.
Located on East Broadway Avenue in Maryville, Tenn., construction on the Alcoa Tenn project kicked off at the beginning of May, 2017, and was completed on October 4, 2017—a full month ahead of schedule.
“It’s always our goal to be ahead of schedule,” explains Hickory Project Manager John Knight. “And when the owner of the project is pleased, it makes it even better. The community is continuously raving about the building. It’s a great feeling.”
A single-story, 4,200-square-foot space, designed by Knoxville-based Johnson Architecture, Inc., the Alcoa Tenn building is made of structural steel and wood trusses, with brick veneer and a metal roof. Inside, the building features three drive-thru lanes, a concrete vault, teller stands, private offices, and a spacious reception area. Accents including elaborate trim and detailed millwork welcome visitors with warm design.
“Everyone on the project was a pleasure to work with,” Knight says. “Alcoa Tenn President David Profitt and Vice President of Operations David Gill were exceptional.”
Alcoa Tenn Federal Credit Union has been serving Blount County and surrounding areas for more than 80 years. Over that time, the institution’s membership has grown from single digits to thousands. Hickory is proud to help Alcoa Tenn continue to build its legacy of “Creating a place where you belong.”
The Eagleton Branch officially opened its doors in December and hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local leaders, including Maryville Mayor Tom Taylor, in early February.
