An outmoded office space tucked in a multipurpose corporate building receives a refresh from the inside out. The modernization of the space serves to suit the day-to-day operations of the first Summerville branch of Ameris Bank.
Due to the age of the building and out-of-date drawings for the original structure, the project team discovered structural issues that would make demolition and renovation unsafe. In partnership with R-K Engineers, the team created a plan to update the building drawings, remap the renovation space, and masterfully navigate the preexisting conditions. By catching this early on in construction, there was no effect on the project schedule.
Upon completing a full demolition of the original interior, a new ceiling is installed with updated light fixtures and carpeting. A decorative brick wall with a crisp coat of white paint adds rustic texture to the modern office suite. The transformed space also features several new offices with glass partitions, a bank teller counter, and service window.
A mid-century modern canopy is constructed, allowing two-lane coverage for the bank teller and ATM. The canopy is also upfitted with security features including cameras and overhead lighting, providing a safer, sheltered space from inclement weather for clients and guests, as well as easy access to the ATMs afterhours.
