The Need

Bank of the Pacific is a full-service community bank headquartered in Aberdeen, Washington. They are committed to providing professional, convenient and personalized financial services to the people of Washington State. They required a new facility that would serve a dual purpose. First, the building needed to serve as a functional banking center with a staff of tellers, loan offices and community banking areas. Second, it needed to incorporate administrative offices and support rooms.

The Solution

The bank turned to New Ground to provide development and management for the project. Being keenly aware of the cost of money, the bank was interested in an accelerated construction solution. New Ground chose Whitley-Evergreen to construct prefabricated units to serve as the base structure of the building. This allowed for the structure to quickly be made weather tight and secure while New Ground installed the complex technical and security systems for the bank. The building also features elegant site-applied finishes such as stacked stone, a pitched roof and Craftsman style beam details.
