Members First Credit Union Headquarters Recognized for Construction Excellence


MANCHESTER, NH – Members First Credit Union’s new headquarters, which opened in the fall of 2021, was recently recognized by Construction Resource magazine. The publication awarded construction manager Sullivan Construction the Design/Build Excellence Award for his work at 7 Salmon St., Manchester.

Construction Resource noted the beauty of the building and its role in Manchester city centre. Instead of being greeted by vacant land as they enter the city, visitors to Manchester now see a “three-storey red-brick Victorian”. The architecture has been carefully designed to appear at ease with the other surrounding buildings, creating what Construction Resource has described as a “beautiful gateway to Manchester city centre”.

The publication also noted the challenges that were overcome as part of the construction. Most notably, the head office was built at the height of the pandemic. In addition, great care had to be taken to protect the streets of the city and a neighboring district.

Construction of the 18,000 square foot building at 7 Salmon St began in July 2020, months after the pandemic began, and opened in September 2021.

“After 14 months of construction, the new headquarters of Members First Credit Union has transformed two overgrown derelict land in historic North Manchester into a beautiful building that reflects the surrounding architecture and truly represents the north of city,” the article concludes.

“We are thrilled to see our friends and partners at Sullivan Construction being recognized for the incredible work they have done in building our headquarters,” said Karl Betz, Senior Vice President/Chief Financial Officer and Interim CEO of Members. First Credit Union. “It was amazing to watch it take shape and we are grateful to have the privilege of working in such a beautiful space.”
