RBFCU CHANGES LANDSCAPE OF NORTHEAST SAN ANTONIO
LIVE OAK, Texas – The landscape of northeast San Antonio was forever changed when Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union began to create its administrative service center addition (ASC II).
The credit union used the LTM 1400-7.1, the largest crane in South Texas, to raise the 145,000-pound panels that will comprise the ASC II walls. This crane, which weighs almost 600,000 pounds, can lift 500 tons (one million pounds) when fully operational.
Sixty-one panels were raised for RBFCU's new building. Each panel is more than 70 feet high; when completed, the four-story building will provide 137,000 square feet of space for RBFCU to serve members.
According to RBFCU senior vice president of planning, John Kelly: "While we build branches on a regular basis, erecting a structure of this magnitude occurs very rarely. We're fortunate to have the opportunity to create this new addition to our administrative service center, as well as to bring additional jobs and revenue to the Live Oak and greater San Antonio community."
