The Federal Savings Bank— a privately held, veteran-owned, federally chartered bank—focuses on educating their customers and expanding home ownership in America. By understanding their customers’ dreams, hopes, aspirations and needs, TSFB seeks to de-mystify the process of borrowing from a bank.
As a growing company, The Federal Savings Bank wanted a space to help drive traffic for their existing employees as well as utilize the space as a recruitment tool for new potential employees. Having already established relationships with all the key players on the project – end user, building owner, leasing broker and the tenant representative – Office Revolution was brought on to help furnish the space. Our team stepped in to drive the schedule, taking the design firm’s initial image book and evolving it into an overall design concept to achieve the client’s desired design aesthetic while meeting their budget, timeline and functionality.
We provided furnishings for a patriotic design conceptualized by GREC Architects. One that facilitates gatherings of all sizes, while providing a highly functional workplace for day-to-day tasks. Handcrafted furnishings from our sister company, Custom Crafters, were created to help bring the brand to life, including a stunning reception desk featuring a CNC-routed star pattern, a matching credenza and banquette seating. Custom stadium seating was added for all-hands meetings and to be used for larger group gatherings. This contrast to typical corporate design brings the nostalgia of school bleachers that reinforces the team mentality and brings a sense of community.
Despite a quick timeline and unprecedented supply chain challenges, Office Revolution was able to execute and deliver this project on schedule resulting in a very happy client. “You should know your team did a really good job for us. I am glad we chose you! I appreciate all your great work and would definitely recommend you and your team to others.” John Calk, Chairman & CEO.
