GMFCU building installation begins

B y Jaime Thomas

Workers began putting in the pieces Monday morning of the Great Meadow Federal Credit Union on East Main Street.

The building came in four pieces, which were lifted into the foundation by a large crane. But before they could move pieces in, the contractors had to shovel snow onto a bucket, which the crane lifted out of the space.

Once the pieces are in place, the roof will be lifted onto the building by crane as well; the whole process should take about three days.

Then the workers will install a drive-thru on the east side of the building as well as an awning, and the rest of the work, including electrical, plumbing, flooring, painting and other interior finishing, will be completed.

The company who installed the building is based out of Pennsylvania, and Daigle Construction LLC has been working on the site and will complete many of the finishing touches.

Remaining equipment such as ATMs will be delivered and installed in the next few weeks.

On Tuesday, 12 to 14 workers were on sight.

CEO Ryan Roberts said the company is pleased with the new branch’s progress.

“We’re excited, and we can start finishing the drive through or the porch awning,” he said

The project should be complete in about a month and a half or so.

“End of March, early April and we’ll be able to service our members and new members in the community,” Roberts said. “It’s a six-week process to get everything installed.”
