Sterling State Bank’s new corporate office features a 30,000 square foot commercial building with three levels. This project marks an expansion from the bank’s current retail and corporate space of approximately 18,000 square feet.
The new site includes a complete retail banking branch, along with space for key departments including information technology, centralized loan processing, commercial lending, internal audit, accounting, electronic banking, and bank operations. “Sterling State Bank first expanded into Rochester in 1992,” said Sterling State Bank President Justin McNeilus. “Since then, we’ve grown along with the city, locating our corporate office here in 2001 to better support new markets. Between the growth that we have experienced as an organization and changes in banking, it became increasingly important to expand into a larger, purpose-built headquarters to support our growth.”
Wells Concrete produced and erected nearly 46,000 square feet of precast concrete for this total precast project that included beams, columns, double tees, solid slabs, spandrels, insulated and solid architectural wall panels and insulated and solid structural wall panels. The new bank headquarters looks beautiful with a mix of architectural wall panels boasting acid etch, sandblast, waterwash and polish finishes. A large white polish frames the entrance of the bank. Double tees, columns, beams and solid slabs support the interior of the building.
Precast concrete is ideal to optimize office construction by creating high performance structures. Precast concrete envelope and structural systems are used for all types of offices, from low-rise to high-rise construction, and in mixed-use applications.
