The new Integris Credit Union building is coming along nicely with an opening date set for the beginning of October.

Grand opening set for new Vanderhoof Integris building

A date has been set for the grand opening of the new Integris Credit Union.

A date has been set for the grand opening of the new Integris Credit Union.

October 6 and 7 have been pegged at the grand opening dates with staff hoping to make the building move during the weekend of October 1 and 2.

“We want to be able to iron out a few things before we actually have our grand opening so we’re going to make the move the weekend before the opening,” said Brenda Astorino, Project Coordinator with Integris Credit Union.

“Everything is on schedule and we’re very excited,” she added.

The next few weeks will see millwork going in on the inside, ceiling tiles and the finishing licks of paint.

“On the inside it’s just finishing touches … on the outside there’s still a lot of grade work to be done and all the paving – that’s kind of the last stuff to go in,” said Astorino.

“People are going to be blown away when they see the inside … if you think the outside looks good you should see the inside,” she added.

Perhaps the most impressive feature of the new building however has yes to be mounted …

“This week they are pouring the footings for the big clock and that’s going to be the real show stopper on the outside,” said Astorino.

Invitations will be sent out shortly for the grand opening.

 

“They’ll be having ribbon cuttings and the mayor’s going to be there – all that wonderful fun stuff,” said Astorino.
