Following a series of mergers that made it Canada’s largest credit union by membership—it serves more than half a million members in B.C.’s Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island—Coast Capital Savings found itself torn between two cramped head offices.
With the help of business furniture company Steelcase, it embarked on a consultation and design process to create a new home that addressed sticky issues raised by employees (everything from inconvenient parking to bad microwave smells). This project culminated last fall in 625 employees moving into the financial institution’s new Help Headquarters in a distinctively angular building in Surrey, B.C.
