S. C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. recently completed interior and exterior renovations to Select Bank & Trust’s Rock Hill, South Carolina Branch. Select Bank & Trust acquired Charlotte-based Carolina Premier Bank, for whom S. C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. renovated its Ballantyne headquarters. A third renovation project is scheduled to begin soon at a South Carolina branch.

To make sure that every branch is uniform to each other, the renovations that are going to be carried out won’t be too dissimilar and is likely to include a handicap door opener to ensure that the property is accessible to everyone. Once the renovations have been completed on this particular branch, we’ll be sure to show you photos.

These kinds of spaces need to be balanced carefully. Every bank has the essential items and services they need to have and provide, from the cash counters to the spaces to discuss financing options with their customers. Having a design that reflects a professional, secure and comfortable atmosphere is very important, but it can be a difficult thing to balance. Additionally, this type of space needs to accommodate to staff alongside customers. Therefore staff services such as toilets, hot water and sink spaces had to be one of the priorities. Companies such as Express Plumbing Heating & Cooling – emergency AC service are very useful on projects like this as they can help with plumbing and HVAC services for other areas of the premises.

The design for the renovation was based on concepts by students in Winthrop University’s Interior Design Program. Allowing fresh minds to look at, and adapt, the space has twofold uses. For one, it gives the bank a breath of fresh air, and for two, it gives those students solid real-life experience that they can take with them after graduation. The plans for construction were generated by Pinnacle Architecture.

S. C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. values its relationships with subcontractors, suppliers, and business associates and has been fortunate to serve as Design-Builder or General Contractor for many of them. In addition to Select Bank & Trust (Carolina Premier Bank), this list includes United Mechanical Corporation, Hoopaugh Grading Company, Red Clay Industries, Blue Max Materials, Rea Construction, Concrete Supply Company, Metromont Materials, and Interstate Electric Company. The bank even considered hiring a waste management service who use tools like roll-off dumpster Software so that the debris could be removed quickly and in a safe manner.
