GSC Architects February 7, 2016


GSC Architects served as JP Morgan Chase Bank’s primary architect for branches in west, south central and southwest Texas and has designed over 25 inline branches and 6 non-prototypical free-standing branches ranging from 1,000 to 5,200 square feet. Additionally, GSC regionalized a national prototype to suit Texas climatic needs and various sites. This prototype has led to the design of over 130 freestanding branches. Standard services for each project included: Due Diligence for each site, including environmental site assessments, surveys, code analysis, site feasibility and zoning; Coordination with adjacent landowners; Construction Documents; Construction Administration, including dry utility coordination; and Redesign of exterior facade for local design requirements/development criteria if needed.

GSC Architects was responsible for JP Morgan Chase’s nationwide LEED® design, including options for Gold and Platinum branches. As a direct result, GSC has designed three LEED® Silver certified branch banks and one registered for LEED® with a certification goal of Silver.
