Build Remodel


Client: American Southwest Credit Union

Preserve The Old And Bring In the New

American Southwest Credit Union’s main office location in Sierra Vista, Arizona was not equipped to handle its recent growth, so the decision was made to expand rather than tear down the 27 year old branch.  A new 14,000 square foot addition was built to serve as the new branch while the older section of the building now acts as their new, remodeled corporate headquarters.

DBSI was chosen primarily because the Credit Union executives could see just how the design of the renovation and new build complimented one another.  Using a 3D video created by DBSI, executives were able to do a virtual walk-through of branch, being able to easily conceptualize and see placement of equipment, teller towers, and offices – they were even able to virtually cross the parking lot to view the new addition and elevated walkway.  They saw the completion of their dream before a shovel of dirt was turned!

“We selected DBSI because of their holistic approach to construction and their in depth knowledge of the financial industry.” 

- Brian Barkdull, ASCU President & CEO
