Mentor - Carver Financial Services Inc. Carver Financial Services Inc. announces a 6,000-square-foot building expansion beginning in spring of 2019, including an expanded reception area, new conference rooms and new offices.
“This expansion is part of our continuing commitment to provide our clients, team and community with a comfortable state-of-the-art building. We plan to break ground in April or May 2019 and complete the project by October 2019,” says Randy Carver, President of Carver Financial Services Inc. an independent practice and Branch Manager, Raymond James Financial Services.
During the construction period, advisors will continue to meet with clients and will also offer phone or video conference meetings as well. Progress updates will also be provided to clients and friends, including the impact on parking.
In 2012, Carver Financial began a planned five-phase improvement program for the building and behind-the-scenes infrastructure. Phases 1 through 4 are now complete.
Phases 1 and 2 were undertaken and completed in 2012. This involved the complete renovation of computer systems and an update to the file center and basement conference center. This work also involved the complete demolition and remodeling of the second floor on the east side of the building. This upgrade allowed for an update to wiring, network and data technology while adding seven office spaces.
Phase 3 involved the renovation of the reception area and exterior of the east side of the building. The new exterior is an energy-efficient exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) system. This phase of the project also entailed adding new servers and digital infrastructure for the building. Both handicapped accessibility and general access were improved, and parking was expanded.
Phase 4 was the largest part of the project and was completed in October 2013. In this phase, the original one-story building was demolished and replaced with a state-of-the-art two-story facility.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we complete these improvements,” commented Carver. “As with our financial planning strategy, we want to be proactive with our facilities so we can continue to provide exceptional service and a great experience to our clients, and future generations, for decades to come.”
