First Castle FCU - Slidell Branch

Square Footage: 2,890 sf

Date Completed: 2018

Location: Slidell, LA

Project Description: In 2011, First Castle Federal Credit Union came to Labarre Architects, APAC and Labarre Construction to design and build a small branch for a strip mall located in Slidell, LA.  After a few years of operating out of that branch, they quickly outgrew their small space.  First Castle FCU once again reached out Labarre for design and contraction services for a new, ground up, 2,890 sf branch that celebrated First Castle’s history with the Corps of Engineers New Orleans District with a strong structural look to the exterior.  The interior utilizes a remote teller for customer transactions, and with the help of CDI Solutions, the branch has a retail feel to the lobby using their corporate colors as well as artwork displaying the history of not only First Castle, but of Slidell, LA as well.

Project Highlights: 

  • Remote Tellers
  • Branded Space
  • New Construction
