Community First Credit Union’s headquarters expansion completed

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – September 23, 2020 – Blocks away from the Duval County Courthouse, Auld & White Constructors (AWC) has completed the Community First Credit Union (C1CU) headquarters expansion project. Situated in Jacksonville’s LaVilla neighborhood, the former Elkins Building required extensive updates to the aesthetics of both the interior and exterior. Working with TTV Architects, Auld & White Constructors renovated the structure and also assisted with coordination of the sophisticated new IT and AV technology to seamlessly connect the headquarters to all of its branches and modernize it to a state-of-the-art facility. AWC was pleased to be part of C1CU’s expanding presence in the heart of Jacksonville.

“Community First has been a leader in Downtown revitalization,” said Buck Smoak, Director of Business Development at Auld & White Constructors. “This repurposing makes economic sense but also helps our Downtown in many ways including pedestrian traffic and more corporate employees near the core.”

Auld and White Constructors was brought in early to help expedite the project. Strategic construction phasing overlapped design by TTV to accommodate an accelerated desired date of occupancy. The 32,300 sq ft, two-story project was completed in six months, two months ahead of the 8-month planned timeline, allowing the 75+ employees to occupy the building and serve their Northeast Florida customers’ needs.
