A majority of the facility will utilize metal stud framing with insulated plywood sheathing system for the exterior walls and gypsum board for the interior walls which will meet the classification of a Type IIB per International Building Code (IBC) Section 602.2.
The Foothills Credit Union will primarily be utilized as a bank with teller stations, offices, and a lobby located on the first floor. The second floor will primarily be utilized for additional offices and meeting rooms. The Foothills Credit Union occupancy classification is considered a Group B business occupancy in accordance with IBC Chapter 3 with a total area of 9,437 ft2.
