Farmers National HQ expansion includes rooftop putting green
Farmers National Bank has announced plans to build an addition to its main office on the Town Square in Canfield.
According to a news release from the company, construction on the 27,000-square-foot headquarters expansion is slated to begin June 2023 with an anticipated construction time of 14-16 months.
A roof-top meeting area is planned with amenities including seating, picnic tables, putting green, and an outdoor kitchen. The bank will use the space to host employee and customer functions.
In addition, the first floor of the building will be home to a multimedia production room for the marketing team in which to create content.
The alterations and additions will expand across Lisbon Street to the south of the existing campus and along the western edge of Canfield Green.
The southeast corner of the new building will feature a rounded aesthetic, echoing other such intersections around the Green. The rounded, glassy corner will highlight the addition's new second-floor executive board room, expressing a new character and identity for the bank, according to the company.
The new addition is designed to reinforce the traditional character of Canfield by incorporating architectural features from the community, in a two-story scale and color palette of the brick exterior, double hung windows, and shingled roof of the adjacent Farmers Bank building to the north.
The bank says the headquarters will pay homage to its roots by featuring historical photos of office locations, directors, and CEOs.
"As our company continues to grow, this expansion will greatly enhance our ability to be centrally located, taking advantage of the synergies of the talented people that have joined Farmers over the years," said Farmers President and CEO Kevin Helmick. "A portion of our lending team, branch operations, marketing, and executive offices will also be housed in the new addition."
Farmers has selected Strollo Architects of Youngstown to design the addition. Greg Strollo will serve as lead architect on the project, with Strollo's David Roose handling the project manager's duties.
Construction Management Services will be provided by DeSalvo Construction of Hubbard, Ohio.
Also undergoing renovations in 2023 is the flagship branch, known as the Canfield Main Office. When completed, customers will enjoy a remodeled office in which the décor will complement the new headquarters building, branded in the bank's signature royal blue and gold colors.
