Branch Bank and Trust (BB&T), one of the oldest banks in America, operates more than 1,500 financial centers in 12 states and Washington, D.C. When BB&T relocated their regional headquarters to Atlanta, Choate Interior Construction was selected to build out the first generation space located in the BB&T tower at Atlantic Station.
The 73,489 SF space includes a branch bank conveniently located at street level for walk-in customers and offices on the upper floors which contain the bank’s many services. The branch bank includes a custom architectural teller line and wall coverings, accented by Italian marble, which is also featured in the check writing desks, teller line, floors, walls and elevator lobbies.
The upper office floors feature elegant café and dining areas divided by ½” specialty glass from the reception area, which showcases wood panels and custom reception desks. Offices have large glass fronts, allowing abundant natural light throughout; spacious conference rooms feature Herculite doors and electric blackout MechoShade systems.
This project was completed in an impressive four months.
