Machias Savings Bank
Located just down the street from their existing Machias location, Machias Savings Bank built an Operations Center to support their 130 local employees.
Connected to Their Roots
Looking out over the Machias River, the building is designed to bring elements of the outside in. Throughout the space, touches of wood and other natural materials like a live moss wall create a connection to the outdoors. The mural in the kitchen is a tribute to the history of Machias and celebrates their unique heritage.
A Vision Brought To Life
Machias’ vision for their new space centered on natural light, scenic views and multiple settings to support various workstyles. This variety of spaces allows employees to do some focus work in the OFS Heya Booth, or enjoy catching up with coworkers in the large, multi-functional cafe hub space.
Centered Around Wellness
Machias Savings wanted to create a space that would nurture collaboration and hard work, but also promote health and wellness throughout. Sit to stand worksurfaces allow flexibility and movement and the new fitness center encourages employees to make their health a priority.
Clean as DIRTT
They knew they wanted a modern and clean solution with privacy and security for their offices, meeting rooms, and accounting team spaces. With a sleek aesthetic and short lead times, DIRTT was the perfect fit for their space and their construction schedule, which took place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
