In the wake of what has been called the most catastrophic weather event in The Bahamas in recent history, Commonwealth Bank is, once again, taking the lead to restore full-service banking to the communities of Abaco island. Construction is anticipated to start shortly to rebuild their Marsh Harbour branch, virtually destroyed during Hurricane Dorian.
Carl G. Treco Contractors & Developers Ltd. has been awarded the 3.9 million dollar contract to construct the new, approximately 9,000 square-foot, facility which is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020. The newly completed branch will feature the Bank’s signature design and amenities – gray exterior with white trim, a spacious customer-friendly lobby, energy efficient fixtures, convenient customer parking and handicap access. The branch will also offer innovative customer care, a full-service loan centre, ABM and night deposit services and customized interior furnishings.
“Since 1987, Commonwealth Bank has been privileged to provide financial services to the residents and businesses in Marsh Harbour, the surrounding communities and the people of Abaco. We remain resolute in our commitment to making the best in local banking services available to our loyal customers; and, at the same time, making a positive impact on the health and stability of the communities we serve.” , William B. Sands Jr., DM, Executive Chairman, Commonwealth Bank.
