Vibe Credit Union

Project Description

Client:  Vibe Credit Union
Surface Area: 3,400
Architect: Zimmerman Design
Ronnisch Service: General Contracting & Design Build

The Project

Vibe Credit Union underwent a corporate transformation. They wanted a trustworthy General Contractor to assist with the implementation, construction, and design of their flagship branch.

After undergoing a metamorphosis and re-branding, Vibe Credit Union looked to the Ronnisch Construction team to implement their new style. Vibe Credit Union’s main goal was to change the experience of banking, with a clear focus on customer service.

The site of the new building was on 2.15 acres and the soil conditions were very poor. We had to proof-roll the site to pinpoint the exact location of the inadequate soil. We also had to proceed methodically to locate, remove, and replace the poor soil with engineered backfill.

Structurally, the poor soil conditions meant that we had to use re-engineered spread footings to accommodate the new buildings structural load.

Milling and sorting the existing parking lot for reuse, offset the costs of the new foundations.

A city building ordinance required a minimum of 50% masonry for the building exterior. “We ended up using a plinth base and an entry wall of 2 by 2-foot and 4 by 4-foot honed Indiana limestone, offsetting it with a rain screen laminated metal panel system for the balance of the building,” said Zimmerman

We used a wide range of materials for this building such as; honed limestone, laminated metal panels, and zinc coated metal tiles which form Vibe’s iconic cylinder.

Square Footage: 5,000 & 3,000
Architect: Auger Klein Aller

The Project

After completing the new 5,000 square foot building for Community Choice Credit Union in Shelby, MI, our client wanted to create a Royal Oak presence. Our client desired an open floor plan to promote a more collaborative banking style that is focused on customer service and customer interaction. They didn’t want there to be a division between bank tellers and bank members.

This project used several special features, such as; glazed orange brick, an exterior curved metal roof, and metalwork panels. The foundation consisted of timber and steel piles as well as grade beams and stem walls. This building also used a Geo Vent and Geo Seal for sub slab mitigation. Ronnisch Construction was proud to assist our repeat client as they expanded locations.
