A new, 110,000 SF banking operations center with extensive telecommunications features and a 1,000 car garage. This is one of the first large steel frame buildings in Puerto Rico. The bank saved approximately $500,000 by using steel rather than concrete which is more commonly used on the island. The building is equipped with telecommunications capabilities necessary to operate the 24-hour telebanking network.
A new, 4,200 SF bank branch building, the prototype of Banco Popular’s forward-looking customer service centers. Features include high-tech design and reinforced concrete construction with extensive use of exterior glass and quality interior finishes.
A phased renovation at this occupied banking operations center. The work included a fire alarm system and areas for retail, drive-in and ATM banking, an administration center as well as a computer center. A new network center was also created to track the status of every Banco Popular ATM machine on the island.
