Financial Institutions

Parkwood has renovated, altered and built new facilities for all the major Banks. Most of the renovation projects have been carried out while maintaining normal business operations for the branches.

This is achieved through careful scheduling, phasing, and working outside of normal banking hours. One special challenge is the replacement of Tellers Counters, which has to be completed over a weekend.

We have perfected this with experienced people who demolish the existing line on Saturday night, and install the new counter early Sunday morning, to be followed immediately by all electrical and data systems. To date we have never failed to deliver a fully operational Teller Counter ready for business on Monday morning.
