Rich & Gardner and SECNY Credit Union

Rich & Gardner Builds SECNY Credit Union’s New Branch

In the world of finance, credit unions have become increasingly popular as a trusted source of financial services. And in the state of New York, SECNY Credit Union is one of the most reliable and consumer-oriented institutions.

Recently, Rich & Gardner partnered with SECNY to build their new branch in Fairmount, New York. The new branch will be a state-of-the-art facility, complete with a contact center and mortgage department. This new location is not only an exciting development for SECNY Credit Union but also an important one, as it will allow them to better serve their members with the latest technology and personalized service.

SECNY Credit Union’s New Branch: A Two-for-One Project

The SECNY Credit Union project started in August 2022 and is expected to be completed by June 2023. The project is a collaborative effort between Rich & Gardner’s construction team and Schopfer Architects LLP, an architectural firm. Located at 3508 West Genesee Street in Syracuse, New York, the new facility is conveniently situated across from the popular Fairmount Fair shopping center.

Alongside constructing the new branch office, Rich & Gardner’s team is transforming a former dentist office into the Contact Center and a hair salon into the Mortgage Department. This allows members to access a variety of services in one convenient location. The Contact Center serves as a hub for members to receive assistance with their banking needs via phone, email, and in the near future: live chat. Meanwhile, the Mortgage Department functions as a dedicated service center, offering members a wide array of mortgage and home equity products and services.

By offering these services under one roof, SECNY Credit Union demonstrates its commitment to providing its members with the best possible service while prioritizing their convenience and satisfaction. This two-for-one project is a great example of how SECNY Credit Union is adapting to meet the changing needs of its members while also investing in the local community.

Partnering with SECNY Credit Union

SECNY Credit Union is a member-owned, full-service credit union with a 52-year history serving Central New York. The organization is dedicated to serving the community and is especially committed to education, serving all public school districts, parochial schools, and colleges in Central New York. They even provide financial education services for students and a perks program for school employees and local organizations.

SECNY is a community credit union offering membership to businesses, legal entities, and individuals who work, live, worship, or attend school in Onondaga, Madison, Oswego, and Cayuga counties. The organization’s focus on education and community development makes them an ideal partner for Rich & Gardner.

The new SECNY Fairmount branch will be their sixth full-service location, offering essential banking services such as checking and savings accounts, loans, and mortgages. Additionally, the facility will have convenient services, including a drive-thru teller, a 24-hour ATM, night deposit services, a coin machine, and a notary public.

Rich & Gardner is proud to collaborate with SECNY in creating a facility that offers top-notch financial services to meet the needs of its members. Together, they have created a valuable asset for the community, reflecting their shared commitment to community development and service.

What This Means for the Community

The construction of the new SECNY Credit Union branch in Fairmount is a significant investment in the community. Being member-owned and “not for profit, but for service” means you can find typically lower loan and mortgage rates, typically higher savings dividends, more electronic options, as well as outstanding financial education opportunities provided for students in local schools and adults throughout various library programs or events. In addition, the credit union maintains reciprocal relationships with select local businesses and organizations to offer additional member benefits. The branch will also provide jobs for local residents, creating new employment opportunities and boosting the local economy.

The convenience services offered at the branch will also make banking easier and more accessible for community members, particularly those with busy schedules who may not have the time to visit the branch during regular business hours. With these services, people can access their accounts and complete transactions at any time of the day or night.

Finally, the new branch’s strategic location is near popular local amenities and easily accessible transportation routes. This will bring convenient financial services to a wider audience, reaching more community members and making banking simpler for them.

What’s Next?

Overall, the completion of the SECNY Credit Union’s new branch in Fairmount will be an exciting development for the community. This latest project by Rich & Gardner will provide community members with access to valuable and convenient financial services.
