McGrath & Associates has completed a $1.25 million renovation of Montgomery Bank in Bridgeton, Missouri, including a complete redesign of the branch and the addition of an AT&T retail store. The design-build project highlights a new trend in the banking industry to reduce branch size while incorporating a retail tenant into the original building footprint. Verve Design Studio was the architect.
“With the popularity of online banking, fewer customers are visiting brick-and-mortar branches, yet banks need a physical location to provide personal, local service and advice,” said Kenneth Witbrodt Jr., CEO of Montgomery Bank. “This is a win-win design solution that helps both the bank and our tenant attract each other’s customers.”
McGrath’s renovation of the 5,100-square-foot facility included exterior finishes and ACM panels, modern interior finishes, drive-thru lanes and canopy, new HVAC air handlers and utility services. McGrath completed the project on time and within budget in a short, six-month schedule, from design to construction completion.
McGrath & Associates is a 100 percent employee-owned general contractor and construction management firm specializing in commercial, health care, industrial, institutional and pharmaceutical construction projects since 1983.
