THE BankPacific board of directors has selected dck worldwide to execute the second phase of the bank’s renovation of its Hagåtña headquarters, according to Philip Flores, BankPacific chairman and CEO.

“BankPacific is excited to make this significant investment in our facilities, our customers and our employees,” Flores said in a written statement. “Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest level of personalized, local service by creating the most customer-centric bank in the region.”

Dck will work in conjunction with RIM Architects, and is to begin construction Sept. 9. Work will be performed at nighttime and the bank will remain open during regular hours, except for a two-week period in February when major electrical and mechanical work will take place.

“Convenience and safety first are at the top of our list for our customers and our staff,” Flores said.

The Hagåtña headquarters, located at 151 Aspinall Ave., is to undergo a complete interior and exterior renovation, including installation of a new teller line, new offices and floor-to-ceiling windows. “The entire interior – floor to ceiling – is being renovated,” Flores said.

Particular attention is being paid to ensure the building is highly energy-efficient. The phase 2 renovation is expected to be completed by the end of April 2014.

Phase 1, which was also performed by dck, was completed in February. The first phase renovations involved the Gov. Joseph Flores Building, which is on Hesler Place immediately behind the headquarters building and attached to it by walkway. It included Sagan Umayao, the bank’s new loan center, on the first floor and the second floor – which contains executive offices, loan servicing, accounting, compliance and human resources – was completely re-done, Flores said.

“We built a new central processing center on the third floor along with a state-of-the-art training facility and a cool employees’ lounge,” he said.
