Project Type: HQ & Flagship Branch
The StoryUnison had a new flagship branch and headquarters up on their whiteboard that they A headquarters project is typically one of the biggest projects an organization will
undertake. It takes strategic balance between form and function to create a space
that will please both employees and employers.
But with so many moving parts, delivering on-strategy, on-time, and on-budget can
be difficult. A very talented group at Unison Bank made the decision to partner with
DBSI to get the data driven answers they needed to deliver a regional HQ and flagship
branch that embodied their brand, accommodated for future growth, and provided a
productive place for work.
The ResultsWorking with a comprehensive partner like DBSI was exactly what Unison needed to make this project a huge success. DBSI helped guide through every step of the process including finding the land, board meeting presentations for approval, future growth projections, technology and of course design-build services.
FAQTOR7, DBSI HQ analysis tool provided the data-based answers needed to ensure the right investment, scope, size timeline, building capacity, efficiencies were all accounted for and built into the space.
The final result was a destination point that staff and customers were proud of. Branding was woven in across the space through an array of colors and artistic elements. The vibrant energy provides great flow and efficiencies for staff. The flagship branch delivers big as well with the latest banking technology, digital signage, colorful drive-thru lanes, and a building that attracts from far away. The best part, this project was finished under budget and faster than a competitor across the street. A win-win for both Unison and DBSI!
"WE ARE BANKERS, NOT BUILDERS. HAVING THE LUXURY OF A FULL-SERVICE PARTNER LIKE DBSI TO WALK US THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS CANNOT BE STRESSED ENOUGH. THE FINAL RESULT IS WONDERFUL... I HAVE TEAM MEMBERS SAYING THEY’RE GETTING MORE WORK DONE, WHICH IS ALWAYS A BONUS! IT’S GREAT TO SEE THE STAFF COME IN AND LOVE COMING TO WORK.”
