LEVEL5 Builds Branch of the Future for Farmers National Bank
Farmers National Bank (Danville, KY) has chosen LEVEL5 to design-build the Bank’s new Branch of the Future. The facility will be located off South Bypass in Danville, and will represent the Bank’s new approach to retail and commercial banking.
“We are very excited to be awarded this project,” said David Lapp, Senior Project Manager for LEVEL5. “The team at Farmers National Bank is listening to their consumers and community and responding with a brand-new customer experience focusing on engagement.”
The Bank will utilize the latest in technology and retail delivery methods in the branch (see fly through video below). The retail lobby will be serviced via cash automation and dialogue towers (teller pods) to create the opportunity for dynamic and advisory interactions between the Bank’s staff and its customers. The drive thru facility will utilize NCR’s Interactive Teller Machine (ITM) allowing for longer hours to the community. Farmers National Bank is the first bank in the area to offer extended hours through this technology.
“We are breaking the traditional banking mold in this move toward our Branch of the Future,” said Marty Gibson, President of Farmers National Bank. “For years, routine transactions have left the branch, but not the opportunity to serve our customers. We chose LEVEL5 to help us with our new branch because they understand the role of the Universal Banker, Retail Banking and are experts in bringing predictability to the design-build of branches.”
A ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for the end of March and construction of the branch is planned for completion in late Summer of 2017.
