(Tolland, CT) Savings Institute Bank & Trust has partnered with Solidus, a design/build/furnish® company located in Rocky Hill CT to construct their new 1,496 sq. ft. full service financial solution center at 159 Merrow Road, Tolland CT. This office offers a new vision and world class customer experience with an open concept and open access that visitors will enjoy. With a technology counter, 2 drive-thru lanes, and a drive through ATM this office is designed to deliver convenience in a clean, modern environment. “We are very excited to be able to offer this new design and customer experience in branch banking, and we look forward to offering the Tolland area residents and business owners a new experience. This new more visible location will provide easy access and added convenience to current customers, a first class solution menu and top quality customer service”, said President & CEO Rheo Brouillard. He added, “Town officials have extended us every courtesy, and in turn we are committed to our responsibilities as corporate citizens and contributors to the local community.” Solidus CEO Mark Charette said, “Banking is changing fast. Branches must now provide an agile array of services to a population that in some cases grew up with automated devices. Savings Institute Bank & Trust have raised the bar for the level of convenience Tolland consumers should expect from their local branch bank.” Construction has begun and completion is expected during December, 2014.
