SSFCU breaks ground on new corporate campus
Security Service Federal Credit Union laying groundwork for stable future
SAN ANTONIO – Security Service Federal Credit Union officially broke ground on its new corporate campus Tuesday. Once complete, Security Service Park will include an operations center, event center, tower, a parking garage and other amenities located at 15000 IH-10 West near UTSA Blvd.
"Security Service has a long history with San Antonio, this is where we were founded in 1956 and today we are building upon that foundation," said Jim Laffoon, president and CEO of Security Service Federal Credit Union. "This expansion will not only provide much needed infrastructure for San Antonio, but it will also allow us to grow as a credit union, creating new jobs and expanding resources for our members in Texas, Colorado and Utah."
The operations building and amenities center will span 270,000 square feet and will house an initial 747 employees with plans to hire an additional 200 in the future.
"I applaud Security Service for laying a foundation that will help us build a better community for our residents for years to come," said San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor. "The drainage project will positively impact nearby homeowners and businesses, while the road improvements to UTEX Boulevard will improve the commute of thousands of UTSA students."
Housed within the operations center will be a 24-hour call center, providing service nationwide. In addition, SSFCU has regional offices located in the Costal Bend, Rio Grande Valley, and El Paso, as well as locations in Colorado and Utah.
Construction will begin immediately, with the operations center scheduled for substantial completion in September 2016. Lake Flato and RVK Architects designed the campus, and award-winning general contractor Jordan Foster will manage the project.
