Construction Consultants, Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union Construct First 3-D Printed Building Facade
Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union (TVFCU), an AGC chapter sponsor, and long-time AGC member, Construction Consultants, collaborated with Chattanooga-based Branch Technology to construct the first-ever 3D-printed building façade using a patented 3D printing process called Cellular Fabrication, C-Fab®.
The credit union's new Southside Branch is located across the street from the AGC office at 125 West 20th Street in Chattanooga.
Jerod Gilley with Construction Consultants learned about Branch Technology's 3-D approach to construction at an AGC member meeting in September 2019. Todd Fortner, CEO of TVFCU, was also aware of Branch Technology's innovation and hoped to use the new technology in a future project.
"With this new technology, the façade of this building is very unique and innovative and very much fits in this community on the Southside," said Todd Fortner, president of the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union which hopes to open the new drive-thru branch by May.
