Core Credit Union


Core Credit Union are based in Monkstown, a leafy suburb of South Dublin. Core bought an old butchers shop and wanted to transform it into their new Monkstown branch.  CCI were able to offer their client a full design and build package.  This included full site survey and CGI lead design to allow them to see the whole project before we started the physical work.  We worked alongside the team at Core to create a bright working environment whilst facilitating their customer and staff day to day needs.



CCI had the interesting task of transforming what was a disused Butchery into a multi-functional Credit Union space for all.  The Credit Union had to accomodate 3 Teller Stations, Managers Office, Toilet Facilities, Staff Tea Point, Foreign Currency Areas and Specialist Storage.  The space needs to be airy and to incorporate as much natural light as possible.  The staff area needs to be designed specifically around the ergonomics of their staff and help them facilitate their daily tasks.


CCI were able to use a variety of design solutions throughout the new Credit Union.  We incorporated all the items requested by the client and added our special spin onto it as well.  We designed a customised dual height customer counter to cater for all.  Each customer station is private and allows for easy interaction with staff. 


The staff side of the counter benefits from height adjustable desks which can have up to 5 individual settings. The desks allow for both standing and seating options at the touch of a button.  CCI also provided task chairs with ergonomics and comfort in mind.  We customised storage space for both leaflets and day to day forms along with more long serving storage solutions.


We chose a bright colour scheme to match the outlook and feel of the business and links well with their corporate image.  The hard floors chosen to the customer side of the counter allow for a stylish solution and allow easy cleaning.  CCI also incorporated customer seating into the deep window troughs and private internet banking stations.  Core are also pushing the forefront of technology within their branch's.  We installed cash counting machines to the staff counter and designed them into the counter design, and their customers benefit from an ATM within their open interior.
