As part of Chase Bank’s major national expansion initiative, Knoebel Construction was tasked to build branch locations in 2021. Each of the approximately 3,300-square-foot locations features modern design elements and open, collaborative spaces with room for meetings and customer education sessions. Each branch was built with a drive-up teller and ATM lanes.
Significant building material shortages during the O’Fallon, MO build posed a primary project challenge, which Knoebel proactively and creatively solved to meet the six-month construction schedule. For example, the roof structure was re-engineered from steel joists to steel beams due to the shortage of joists this year. Knoebel has additional experience in bank branch construction working for US Bank.
Chase Bank recently announced that it had become the first national bank to have retail branch locations in all 48 contiguous states.
