Dan Price, Executive Vice President and Manager of Retail Banking for Mountain West Bank, knew the groundbreaking for his company’s new flagship branch at the corner of Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue in Meridian, Idaho, was a big deal. So when it came time to literally break the ground on May 21st, he ditched the ceremonial shovel and hopped behind the controls of a Cat 312 Excavator, a broad smile across his face widening with each additional heap of dirt it displaced.
Price and his genuine enthusiasm are just one of the many reasons CTA Architects Engineers was thrilled to collaborate with Mountain West on the bank’s new complex. Like CTA, Mountain West Bank is wholly committed to taking care of its customer base and this shared philosophy made working alongside MWB a rewarding experience for many of CTA’s team members, according to project manager Connie St. George.
“They are good people, and do business based on core values that are closely aligned with CTA’s,” she said.
The building’s forthcoming 11,500 square foot location — adjacent to Meridian’s new shopping and entertainment destination, The Village, at the crossing of Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue — provides Mountain West Bank with a highly impactful location. The intersection is the state’s busiest, according to the Idaho Department of Transportation.
Discussions between CTA and MWB began in the spring of 2014, and the Eagle/Fairview branch is slated to be completed in January 2015.
