Client

Byline Bank

Architect

Behles + Behles

Date of Completion

2021

Byline Bank contracted Helios to complete interior upgrades to an existing branch location at a heavily trafficked intersection in the Chicago neighborhood of Wicker Park. This branch location is Byline’s first fully self-serviced ATM facility and the first branch to feature a Fry Reglet Graph Modular Wall System. With new eye-catching light fixtures and the backlit wall system, the facility creates an attractive, bright, and inviting space for the community. The branch remained open throughout the project buildout, which included shoring for new storefront openings and installing security features such as access controls, video surveillance, and intrusion detection.
