Hawaii State Federal Credit Union’s new 70,000-square foot, 10-story office building creates a safe, welcoming place for employees to return to the office.
Each floor will include a “CALM Zone,” which stands for cleanse, arrive, awaken, lounge, and meet. As employees exit the elevator, the wellness space includes a water feature, a place to wash hands, and a lounge area where people can get coffee or water, relax, and take a breath before working.
The building will also feature a kitchen, breakroom, rooftop gathering space, modern fitness center, privacy rooms for nursing mothers, 10- and 12-foot-high ceilings, and a simulated test branch for training purposes in addition to other features.
