Business First Bank is located inside the 900 Plaza office building in the Oil Center. Business First Bank approached the design team with the goals of developing a distinct corporate image to portray to their clients and to further their “relationship banking” approach to business. Through a series of programming sessions, a design was developed that meets the bank’s needs today and for their potential future growth. In addition to the architectural and interior design, the design team was actively involved in the total project delivery, including designing custom signage that accentuates the architecture and working with a local photographer to provide artwork for the interior that reinforces the relationship of the bank in the community. Through an innovated design process and complete involvement in the project through construction, the design team was able to bring this project in substantially under the client’s budget and on time.
