FNBC selects general contractor for Jonesboro project
FNBC Bank, the $540 million asset community bank headquartered in Ash Flat, has selected Ramsons, Inc. as its general contractor for its flagship Jonesboro location. The new commercial banking center will be located at the corner of Fair Park Boulevard and Race Street.
FNBC entered the Jonesboro market in August 2018 and currently operates in a leased location at 1118 Windover Rd. Led by Community President Brad Snider, FNBC’s first venture into Craighead County has been successful, prompting the need for a larger, newer facility to serve clients.
“We are excited to be breaking ground on our newest office less than two years after opening our doors in Jonesboro,” said FNBC President & CEO Marty Sellars. “We’ve had a great response from the community and we are looking forward to welcoming all of our clients and prospects into our new, innovative banking experience.”
Architectural design and construction management is provided by Adrenaline Agency, an experience design agency headquartered in Atlanta. The state-of-the-art, 5,800 square foot office will have a more open concept, allowing clients to pull up a chair for more collaboration and connection. Floor to ceiling windows will allow natural sunlight to flood the space and for an illuminated effect after hours.
It will also introduce interactive teller machines, or ITMs, under detached canopies set away from the building.
“Our vision is that this location becomes our main hub for other operations throughout Jonesboro and surrounding Northeast Arkansas communities,” said Sellars.”
COVID-19 may have delayed FNBC’s plans for a ceremonial groundbreaking event, but it hasn’t stopped the project from moving forward. Heavy machinery was placed on the property the week of May 11 and dirt work is expected to begin any day.
“Jonesboro has proved itself a strong and resilient community over the past few months, and we are proud to be putting down permanent roots,” added Sellars
The project is slated to be completed in late fall 2020. For more information about FNBC, please visit www.fnbc.us/about.
