The new operations center for Honor Credit Union is going up in Berrien Springs.
Honor Credit Union broke ground at 8385 Edgewood Road, just north of the M-139 highway exit off US-31.
The site was selected to provide a centralized location and easy access to the highway.
The new operations center will centralize support, physical offices, and technological services for the credit union.
The operations center is anticipated to be complete by the fall of 2015. It is a 37,000-square-foot building on more than six acres of land.
Credit union officials say the operations center will give them greater ability to support the retail branch network, new technology, and be more efficient as it works with the communities and members it serves.
Honor Credit Union is working with EC Moore of Berrien County and Collective Office for the design and construction work on the project.
The existing retail branch in St. Joseph will remain in place. It will be updated once the operations center is complete. The current branch in Berrien Springs will also remain open and will continue to be the retail location for Berrien Springs.
"Our highest priority continues to be the financial solutions and member service we are able to provide," says Scott McFarland, CEO of Honor Credit Union. "Giving the incredible Honor team the resources they need to provide solutions for financial success to the State of Michigan is important and that is what our operations center is going to do."
Honor Credit Union serves more than 51,000 members across the State of Michigan.
