Bayshore is carving out a niche in bank construction. Calusa marks the third bank project we've won in the past year
Punta Gorda, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
In the midst of an ultra-competitive commercial construction market, Bayshore Construction Group today announced a new bank project worth $2.5 million.
Calusa National Bank, a nationally chartered community bank in southwest Florida, chose Bayshore Construction Group to build its headquarters in Charlotte County's Punta Gorda. The two-story, Class A building will offer 12,500-square-foot of office space at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Aqui Esta Drive.
"Bayshore is carving out a niche in bank construction. Calusa marks the third bank project we've won in the past year," says Chris MacNair, president of Bayshore Construction Group. "There were large regional commercial contractors competing for this high-profile job, but Bayshore's efficiencies and experience won the project."
Calusa National Bank is one of Bayshore's repeat construction customers. Bayshore is completing construction of an in-line branch for the bank in Sarasota County's North Port. Bayshore has also wrapped up construction of another bank branch for Charlotte State Bank in Charlotte County.
"At Calusa National Bank, the use of advanced technology, as well as traditional banking services, assures all clients of our ability and willingness to provide prompt, professional financial services that meet their individual needs", says Todd Katz, President of Calusa National Bank. Calusa offers a wide array of services, including Internet banking, online bill payment, check image statements, safe deposit boxes, retail and commercial loans, and credit services for merchants.
With its latest bank construction win, Bayshore Constructin Group is set to break ground on Calusa National Bank's headquarters in October 2008. The headquarters will open its doors in June 2009.
"This is the perfect project for Bayshore. Our principals have been active on the West Coast of Florida for over 20 years," says Tom Overstreet, vice president of project management at Bayshore Construction Group.
Calusa National Bank, which serves the business, professional and residential communities of Charlotte County and North Port, Fl., is just one of several West Coast Florida projects Bayshore has underway. Bayshore also currently has about 50,000 square feet of retail/office space under construction in Cape Coral and is bidding on additional projects in the area.
"Our understanding of the Southwest Florida market, our access to dependable subcontractors, and our knowledge of the banking industry's unique needs - such as drive-through windows, vaults and other amenities - make Bayshore the ideal contractor for Calusa National Bank's latest project," Overstreet concludes.
