First Federal Community Bank

First Federal Bank

Additions & Renovations

Paris, Texas - Completed 2008

Designed by Denney Architects in 1999, the First Federal Loop Banking Center was originally intended to be a small, branch facility primarily to serve motor bank customers. Five years later, however, Denney Architects was called upon again to design a major expansion of the facility to include a full range of banking services and four additional drive-through banking lanes, more than doubling the size of the original.

Special emphasis was placed on maintaining and enhancing the architectural character of the building, so that the new addition would not be recognizable as such when completed. Also, the existing banking operations could not be interrupted during the construction, which proved to be especially difficult due to the small size of the original structure. The original bank (5,000 square feet) was constructed by Mike Anderson Construction Co. of Paris, and the 6,024 square foot addition was built by C. R. Reynolds General Contractors of Sherman, Texas, at a cost of $1,100,000.00 ($182.60/sq. ft.).
