Athens First Bank & Trust Co.

Athens, Georgia

Project Description

Located in the heart of downtown Athens, Georgia, this brand new facility houses Athens First Bank & Trust’s new Corporate Headquarters. The project posed many interesting challenges due to its restrictive site location.The project consisted of a new three-story, cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete parking structure with a four-story structural steel building perched atop the third floor parking structure. The first floor houses the downtown banking branch of AFB&T. The upper floors house various departments of the bank, as well as corporate and administrative offices.The project was finished nearly two months early, despite approximately $300,000 of additional Owner-requested scope changes, which the Owner added to the project following GMP execution.
