(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – People passing through Lawrenceburg on U.S. 50 may have noticed some dirt being moved at the corner of the highway and Walnut Street.
The construction site is the future home of First Financial Bank, currently located further down Walnut Street off the beaten path and high traffic area of U.S. 50.
First Financial says the new 4,000 square foot branch will be built using a new prototype design which includes visual merchandising, retail graphics, and an open floor plan. There will be four drive-thru lanes and an ATM.
“We’re committed to investing in the area to continue building strong, long-term relationships with our clients, local businesses and the community,” said Art Hammond, First Financial vice president and regional market manager. “The new site will allow us to continue to provide high-quality service, innovative banking solutions and expert financial advice that our clients expect and deserve.”
“The personal relationships we develop with our clients are very important to us and we’re excited to share this new space with them,” said Jason Hughes, First Financial business banking center manager for the region. “Our team looks forward to guiding clients with smart financial solutions to help them reach their goals.”
The new building will also brag several “green” elements such as energy efficient insulation, a white roof membrane to reduce heat absorption from sunlight, special window tinting to reduce or gain heat, high efficiency HVAC, and controls to reduce electrical waste during non-business hours.
Founded in 1863, First Financial has 108 branches throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. It has $6.3 billion in assets.
