The Dow Smith Company team has completed a new office build-out for Franklin Synergy Bank (FSB) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Formerly known as Midsouth Bank, FSB now occupies a unit located at 310 West Main Street in downtown Murfreesboro. Completed in Fall 2018, the project involved creating a floor plan that could accommodate the bank’s current and future needs in the available space. By the time the project was finished, we were able to provide FSB with a unique, full-service bank branch.
Franklin Synergy Bank, founded in 2007, provides a full range of banking and related financial services with a focus on service to small businesses, corporate entities, local governments and individuals across Middle Tennessee. The bank's mission is to build a legacy company by creating shareholder value, cultivating strong customer relationships, and fostering an extraordinary team of directors, officer and employees. FSB's new branch at 310 West Main Street is its fifth Murfreesboro location.
Our crews are familiar with 310 West Main, an historic space and local landmark built in 1925. In Summer 2018, we completed the tenant build-out for McCarter/East Law in a space adjacent to FSB. The building was originally constructed as an auto dealership and has served many functions throughout its history. During this period, the space had been subdivided and renovations were sporadic. The Dow Smith team was presented with a challenging fit-up due to the building’s complicated construction and run-down condition.
The FSB project was no different. Additionally, we were presented with a tight construction schedule. Ultimately, this required immense coordination with the architects, bank owners and our estimating and project management team. Safety was also a major consideration given the building’s age and condition. Under the supervision of Field Operations Manager Gary Grisham, the project was completed safely, on time and on budget.
"Murfreesboro and Rutherford County are highly attractive banking markets, and we are delighted to have a new branch in such a great location," said Richard Herrington, FSB Chairman and CEO.
We are proud to contribute to the growth of our local communities. The Dow Smith team is excited to bring another successful business to downtown Murfreesboro.
