Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) has opened the new modular office building that Ramtech built for the company’s existing Marble Falls, TX site. The new 2,255 square foot payment processing office will serve the company on an interim basis while Pedernales Electric evaluates plans to develop a new site in the future to meet their expected growth and customer service needs. The Type V wood frame structure features a canopy-covered vehicle drive-through with a bullet resistant teller window, along with an entrance to the facility that incorporates an ornate set of wood steps and ramps designed to meet all accessibility standards. Heating and cooling of the building is accommodated with a five-ton split system zoned to accommodate the walk-up payment lobby, a large office room, two open office areas, and a break room. The interior office areas are finished out with VCG walls and a combination of VCT and carpet floor coverings, while the exterior utilizes a factory applied HardiePanel fiber cement vertical siding.
The Pedernales Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit rural electric distribution utility cooperative headquartered in Johnson City, Texas. Originally organized in 1938, PEC now delivers electricity to more than 255,000 customers throughout an 8,100 square mile service area covering 24 counties in the Texas Hill Country. PEC is also part of the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives brand, an alliance of 749 local, consumer-owned electric cooperatives that distributes power through two million miles of line to serve 32 million member-owners in 46 states.
