Project

Prior to its acquisition by Affiliated Bank, this facility contained a branch bank, loan offices and other back-room functions for a local Savings & Loan. In integrating the bank into its operation, Affiliated reduced the facility to a branch. To help maintain the street edge, the corner portion of the original limestone faced storefronts was retained. Inside the retail banking functions are organized along a central spine which extend through a new entry to parking. The project required extensive demolition and site work; gutting and renovation of a series of storefronts; new mechanical and electrical systems; and a new drive-up facility.

Role

Project Architect / Project Manager: Involved with the project from schematic design through construction. Completed the design work which included programming, space planning, and estimating; involved with design development of the new entry/lobby; oversaw the completion of the working drawings and specifications; provided bidding assistance and performed construction administration tasks. The project included extensive coordination, client interaction and an involved municipal approval process.

Firm: Robert G. Lyon & Associates (now RGLA Solutions)
