DEALING WITH THE UNEXPECTED
project stays on course with design-build solutions
Prior to being bought by Washington Federal, Horizon Bank operated eighteen banking office in Western Washington with branch offices in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish and Pierce counties.
As Horizon Bank looked to add a loan and banking center in Everett, they called on Fisher to design and build the new facility– the fourth project Fisher built for the corporation.
The highly visible site chosen was full of unique challenges, including the diversion of an underground stream and incorporating aggressive an water-proofing plan to keep moisture from seeping below the building. Fisher’s design and construction teams set to work to make facility highly visible and efficient– to serve the needs of Horizon’s many customers as well as serve as a training center for employees in the greater Everett area.
The 16,000 sq. ft. 4-story building accommodates 5 drive-up lanes, and multiple loan offices. This project included high end interior finishes and ACM panels as well as a glass wall of windows extending several stories.
