Genisys Credit Union is a nonprofit, cooperative
alternative to commercial banks, owned by members,
with locations in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Minnesota,
including Eagan, Lakeville and Roseville.
Welsh was first selected to do the design/build for the
new location in Lakeville, located in a new, bustling
shopping center. With the building shell already
completed, Welsh completed the build-out of this space.
After a successful completion in Lakeville, Genisys decided
to build a new location for their existing Eagan branch
and found a standalone pad site in the busy Central Park
Commons shopping area of Eagan, just across the street
from their existing branch. Genisys had a prototype
building design they’d used for their Michigan branches
and wanted to replicate that design in Eagan, a city with
strict covenants. Finding a suitable metal panel color and
exterior building signage proved to be a challenge, but the
team found a successful solution for everyone.
Despite its small footprint, the building has an
immense amount of detail and finish work. The entire
building exterior, including the soldier courses, picture

constructed of brick and the interior features numerous
Despite construction happening during one of the wettest seasons on record, and scarce availability from subcontractors, Welsh delivered the new location on time and within budget to another happy client!
