AE3 performed design services for Patelco Credit Union branch renovations in Berkeley, San Leandro, Sacramento, San Jose, and the Patelco Headquarters cafeteria renovation.

The Berkeley branch project involved the renovation of the interior of a 3,546 square foot tenant suite. The tenant suite is one story with a partial mezzanine in a Type V building storefront retail building.  In 2015, the neighboring tenant suffered a fire which resulted in some fire damage to the Patelco suite. The existing interior improvements were demolished to make way for this rebuild.  The San Leandro branch renovation included the one story interior of a 2,280 square foot tenant suite. The Sacramento branch renovation included tenant improvements to 2483 sf interior space. The San Jose branch renovation included tenant improvements to 2,897 sf of interior space.

The renovations included: reception areas with members lounge & coffee station; station teller areas; semi-private offices; “discovery station” (counter with iPads for self-service) and media walls; conference rooms; and back of house areas with employee lounge, check writer, kitchenette, and IT cage.

AE3 also designed the complete renovation of Patelco’s Headquarters cafeteria. The scope of work included the interior selection of new furnishings, kitchen equipment and finishes.
