Littleton, MA – Construction will soon be underway for the new headquarters of Workers Credit Union (WCU), which serves over 100,000 members at its 15 locations throughout Central Massachusetts.

 Nauset Construction will begin the renovation of an original structure and construction of a 16,000sf addition to create a 60,000sf Class A office environment that fosters employee wellness and productivity.

Designed by Maugel Architects, the new headquarters combines traditional and modern design elements. The contemporary interior will feature glass guardrails, glass accent signage walls, branded graphic walls and columns, terrazzo staircases, wood ceilings, and expansive folding walls, with a two-story lobby and a grand staircase. A sound-masking system will be installed throughout the entire building to reduce noise distractions, protect speech privacy, and increase office comfort.

The new facility will house WCU’s corporate offices and a number of its departments, offering numerous amenities, including conference rooms, training rooms, a café, an outdoor dining patio, and a fitness center. The building’s exterior design features traditional masonry and cast stone that complements more modern elements, such as curtainwalls and a glass roof canopy. The building will be LEED Silver compliant.

“Our new headquarters will reflect our commitment to employee well-being, with an abundance of natural light throughout the open work areas which have been strategically placed along exterior walls with large windows to encourage collaboration — a design that creates a healthy work environment that also allows employees to be more productive,” said Robert Lockett, SVP and chief strategy officer of WCU. “We’re experiencing phenomenal growth, and the new headquarters in Littleton will not only allow us to accommodate our future needs, but also free up space for our operational departments to expand at our present headquarters in Fitchburg.”
