Community Banking Centre Transformation



The Scott Road branch of CIBC has been transformed to operate with a new client-sales model to support the strategic objective of positioning CIBC bank as an industry leader, driving meaningful business growth through a greater focus on their clients.

This project was split into two phases, as the original scope included the removal of a wall that the client’s architect originally thought to be non-structural on the drawings. When it was opened up, we found it was a structural wall with Steel Cross Bracing. We decided to finish the original scope and leave the wall in place so that in the short term, CIBC could re-open and continue serving their valued customers. We then came up with an expedited construction plan to demolish and and replace the wall with two steel columns, and subsequently re-route electrical, refinish the paint and drywall of the area all within a 7-day window. This involved tight coordination with multiple trades, engineers, and inspectors within this time frame.

“I wanted to take a moment today to send this note to you to recognize and thank both Karolyn and Joe for their dedicated efforts in the successful completion of our branch renovation at Kennedy Banking Centre, Surrey, BC.

Both Karolyn’s excellent project management skills and Joe’s excellent supervision on site made a big difference. It was a difficult renovation with tight timelines and we appreciate that they put in the hard work, long hours and demonstrated amazing partnership with myself and Brent.

Thank you again and we look forward to working with you and your team in the future."”
