RICHLAND, Wash. – Gesa Credit Union has begun construction on two branches, one to replace an existing facility in Pasco, the other a new service center in Richland.

Both branches will incorporate environmental sustainability in their construction and operations, the credit union said. Both branches will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified facilities.

“We have been providing outstanding member service throughout Eastern Washington for the last 60 years, and the opening of these branches extends our ability to provide the convenience that our members have come to expect,” said Don Miller, interim president and CEO of the $1.3 billion credit union.

“When we choose to build a new branch, we give careful consideration to location. We have selected these locations in west Pasco and south Richland based on the feedback we have received directly from our members,” Miller added.

Both branches will feature on-site mortgage and commercial lending officers, LPL Certified Financial Consultants, and touch-screen kiosk technology to access more information about credit union products and services. A drive-up, deposit-taking ATM will be available 24 hours per day.

Both locations are expected to begin serving Gesa members in early 2014.
