St. Jean’s Credit Union Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony


NewGround will design new Revere branch

December 27, 2018–NewGround, a St. Louis-based experiential architecture, design, and delivery firm, recently celebrated the groundbreaking for St. Jean’s Credit Union’s new branch in Revere, Mass.

Relocating from the previous Shirley Avenue site, the new 4,500 square foot building will be nested in a shopping center pad site occupying the credit union’s 2,600 square foot space, with an additional 1,800+ square foot space to be leased.

A departure from St. Jean’s Credit Union’s other locations, the new Revere branch’s retail delivery will incorporate cash recyclers and utilize the universal banker delivery model. The design will also include a drive-up ATM and a 24-hour vestibule ATM.

NewGround employees who attended the groundbreaking ceremony included Joseph DiAntonio, Javier Fernandez, Steve Nagy, and Ralph Nelson.

“NewGround is proud that St. Jean’s Credit Union looked to us to serve as their branch transformation partner, and we are thrilled to break ground on their new Revere branch,” said Kevin Blair, President and CEO of NewGround.

Construction began Friday, December 14, with an anticipated completion in May 2019.
