Project description: After working with Base Construction & Management LLC in the preliminary design phase, BluCurrent spokeswoman Jacqueline Post said Nesbitt Construction was hired for the construction. Project completion was pushed back a few months to early summer due to re-engineering, she said. Officials had set a first-quarter opening for the branch, the cost for which has increased about 20 percent due to materials pricing. Post said it’s designed with a technology bar, interactive kids’ area, a mixed media wall and member conference areas. The new branch, which would be BluCurrent’s fourth, represents a return to Glenstone Avenue. The credit union sold a location near Glenstone and Seminole Street over five years ago. BluCurrent President and CEO Craig Tabor has said the credit union plans to open another branch or two in the next few years, and it owns property at the northeast corner of Campbell Avenue and Weaver Road slated for a new operations center and possible branch.
