Aldergrove Financial Group wins awards

Aldergrove Financial Group recently received a building award at the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board Commercial Building Awards

Aldergrove Financial Group recently received a building award at the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board Commercial Building Awards in the Retail category. The award was to recognize the organization’s Otter location in Aldergrove.

The two-story building is home to the organization’s administration team on the second floor, credit union branch, insurance and financial planning office on the main floor. The building features a lobby and drive-thru ATM for increased member convenience.

“It’s a beautiful building and one that I am very proud of,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl.

“Whenever we have someone visit our office for the first time, they are always surprised to see this building in the middle of what’s mostly agricultural land. We have received many compliments from the public, industry peers and suppliers. Most of the staff love the outdoor patio on the second floor, where we can barbeque and have fun as a team.”

The organization worked with architect/designer Tom Annandale from TRB Architecture on all aspects of the building.

“It’s an honour to receive this award and a privilege to work with the talented team at TRB Architecture,” says Hartl.

“It has always been a pleasure working with Aldergrove Credit Union and in particular this exciting project,” says Tom Annandale.

“As architects, what we set out to do was design a building which would tie together the neighbouring Co-op facilities and the surrounding agricultural lands while at the same time create a warm and inviting environment for both staff and members. Seeing this through to fruition, along with the vocal public appreciation it has received has surpassed our goals for the Otter Branch. Receiving this award is a tremendous honour.”

The credit union is currently working with TRB on their sixth location in downtown Abbotsford, opening in spring 2013.
