Investors Community Bank moves into new Stevens Point location
Investors Community Bank (ICB) has moved its Stevens Point operations to a new banking center at 5517 Vern Holmes Drive, effective Feb. 1. The 13,184-square-foot facility replaces the bank’s current office on Church Street and will continue to provide the same services.
“We’re pleased to have a larger bank space in Portage County that will provide an even better banking experience for our customers and the community,” said Tim Schneider, CEO and co-founder of ICB. “With a beautiful, welcoming design, visitors will experience a warm, comfortable atmosphere that focuses on the customer and also aligns with our brand look. This is an investment in the community that shows we are committed to serving their long-term financial needs and building lasting relationships.”
Ghidorzi Construction served as design/build contractor for the project.
“The building was designed to capture the spirit of Investors Community Bank by leveraging the influence of the agricultural sector on the bank’s growth. Through features such as a dramatic vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace and antique vault door, our design team was able to pay tribute to the heritage of ICB and the banking industry,” said Chris Ghidorzi, vice president of property development.
The lower level of the building includes a 1,100-square-foot meeting room adjacent to a full kitchen that can also serve as a community resource for nonprofit and civic groups to use.
Green features are an integral part of the building, which incorporates LEAN building principles that eliminate waste, including LED lighting inside and out, concrete pavement to increase the reflectiveness of the parking lot at night and reduce the amount of parking light required, an air-tight spray foam that envelopes the building to significantly enhance energy efficiency and regulate temperature and an in-floor heating system to warm workspaces while minimizing convection heat loss.
ICB first opened a banking center in Stevens Point in 2010 and has leased space since. However, continued growth in the Portage County market required it to seek a different location. The new office is in an expanding commercial area that maximizes market impact and increases visibility.
ICB is a wholly-owned subsidiary of County Bancorp Inc. For more information, visit www.InvestorsCommunityBank.com.
