PROJECT OVERVIEW Reading Time: < 1 minute

branch transformation creates a warm and inviting space for customers

Opportunity Bank of Montana opened their doors in Helena, Montana in 1922 as American Building and Loan. Over the years their name has gone through a handful of changes, but in 2014, the Bank applied to the State of Montana to convert their charter from a Federal Savings & Loan to a State Chartered Bank. This change provided an opportunity to re-brand as Opportunity Bank of Montana. Opportunity Bank of Montana is a $1.2 billion community bank with 22 full-service bank branches throughout Montana, along with mortgage, agriculture and digital banking services.

the challenge

applying branded elements to a new location

After having worked with The Element Group to design and implement signature elements for their other locations, it was only necessary to apply the same treatment to the new Bozeman branch. The Element Group took the kit of parts designed for the other locations and was able to easily implement them at this branch.

every bit matters

an inviting environment draws in the community

The Element Group integrated warmer elements into the branch including a fireplace in the lobby, neutral colors on the walls, fixtures, and furnishings. Environmental fabric graphics are used throughout the branch to tie in the community-based nature of Opportunity Bank.
