Canton, MA – To meet its plan of ambitious expansion in the Greater Boston area over the next few years, JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) has selected Timberline Construction Corporation (Timberline) to be its construction manager of choice for many of the new branches throughout the New England region.

Partnering with project manager JLL, Timberline has recently completed the new construction of several ground-up, freestanding banking centers in Salem and Portsmouth, N.H.; Woburn, Mass.; and Cranston and Warwick, R.I.

JPMC has invested in the construction of bank locations to keep up with demand. The interiors of these new locations are designed to create a casual environment with a mix of light woods, black metal, tile and natural light. Timberline has also installed updated security technology and the latest AV equipment for customers to utilize.

Branded, modern interior and exterior signage clearly identifies each center, which slightly differs depending on location. For example, the Woburn white brick exterior blends in with the completely revamped Woburn Village mixed-use development. With 21st century customer preferences in mind, Chase’s specific programming for these projects has included Customer Meeting Rooms (CMRs), station teller lines, lobby ATM/eATMs, exterior walk-up ATMs and drive-up ATMs.
