Republic Bank & Trust
Located in Temple Terrace, FL., this free-standing Republic Bank is the first location in Florida to have an Interactive Teller Machine in the drive-thru lanes. ITMs have live customer service representatives in real-time video which makes banking easier for customers.
Once a boarded-up, fire-damaged building, Schaefer worked with the Owner, Architect and City to renovate the existing structure. Due to the fire damage, the roof framing and two of the existing walls had to be removed and rebuilt along with additional structural and foundation work prior to the interior build- out of the bank could begin.
The branch now features new offices, teller lines, an employee breakroom, IT room and a beautiful lobby with high-end finishes and custom woodwork. Exterior renovations included new storefront windows, new roofing and new drive through lanes as well as new sidewalks, landscaping and site lighting.
