Platte Valley Bank

Location: Gering, NE 

Year completed: 2012

Platte Valley Bank had wanted to open a branch in Gering, NE, for a long time. When the prime location became available, they turned to our team to perform a feasibility study of the existing building—during which time we determined that, to best meet the bank’s goals, we’d need to create a new facility instead. 

From choosing beautiful interior finishes, to adding high clerestory windows in the main lobby for natural light, every element of the design contributed to creating a welcoming, one-of-a-kind bank.

Now complete, the full-service, 4,000 sq ft facility is more than a financial institution; it also serves as a much-needed community room for downtown Gering. The building’s shared entry allows the bank to be secured while civic groups and events use the community room. Giving back to the community is what Platte Valley Bank has always been known for, and creating a place for people to meet was a great way to do exactly that.
