Construction begins in Columbus on new Employee State Credit Union buildingPublished 5:37pm Friday, June 1, 2012
Grading has begun on a 4.01-acre lot behind the CVS Pharmacy in Columbus for the construction of a new Employee State Credit Union building.
A Polk County building permit was issued on April 18, and grading work first became visible on Friday, May 25.
The building is planned as a one-story metal frame structure with brick/stucco. Its size is planned at 6,658 square feet, and its value is estimated at $1,620,000, according to the building permit.
Contractors for the construction include Blue Ridge Enterprises Inc., Mid Nite Electric Co., George Brooks Plumbing Co. and Penland Heating & AC.
It is unknown when construction is scheduled to be complete. An inspection was recently performed by the Polk County Building Inspection Department, which extends the building permit for a one-year period.
The Columbus branch of the State Employees Credit Union is currently located at 108 Shuford Road.
