Every business has its own challenges when taking on construction, remodeling, and expansion projects. Staying open and operational is a significant concern for companies who serve customers on their site, and doing so in a safe and secure environment is always of utmost importance. Financial institutions, as you can imagine, have an increased need for protecting security during projects, as well as other concerns.

Recently we received communications from two financial institutions Derrick Building Solutions completed projects for during the past year that we would like to share with you.

First National Bank of River Falls
Derrick Building Solutions was hired as a general contractor for an addition of 6,500 sq. ft. and an extensive remodeling project at the headquarters location of First National Bank in downtown River Falls. The work began several years ago, nearly 3 years prior to groundbreaking, with an in depth planning process to ensure that the space needs of the entire team were being met and that all aspects of the project and budget were covered in detail.

Bank President, Jeffrey Johnson , indicated “Staff is unanimous in their excitement for their new workspace…customer just LOVE the fresh new look.” The addition of a community room has been very popular as it has been booked by the general public for most days throughout the next year. He added, “All in all, our experience with Derrick was outstanding, and I would recommend them for any type of similar project.”

Westconsin Credit Union-Hudson

The Hudson office of Westconsin Credit Union underwent significant interior remodeling earlier this year while staying open to the public. Jim Wookey, Chief Operations Officer shared these comments: “The Hudson project went great! We are ecstatic how it turned out. It really gave tht building new life and we are able to serve our customers/members/employees even more professionally. Mark and John were vry good to work with and fulfilled every request we had. This was not an easy project to do since we kept the office open for business. Your team was very accommodating!”

Bell Bank, Stillwater, MN
Bell Bank is a large private bank with a large regional presence in the Midwest with full service and 40 mortgage offices. One of their newest is located in Stillwater in a retail center which was originally built by Derrick Building Solutions. The build-out for this business was completed by our team, as well. This was a new office for Bell Bank and having the ability to complete the project prior to opening made for a very prompt project completion in just 4 weeks. See more photos here.

First National Community Bank, Somerset, WI
Last year, the First National Community Bank of Somerset worked with Derrick Building Solutions on a renovation project to provide new finishes and new teller counters which dramatically changed the appearance of the bank lobby.
