A comfortable work environment is the key to a productive workforce. Live Oak Bank, a rapidly growing organization, quickly outgrew its new development two short years after moving in. Looking to maintain a balance between working space and common areas, the expansion focused on harmony between architecture and nature.

The second phase, referred to as Building II, offers floor to ceiling views of the beautiful landscape that surrounds the complex, including the pond, walking trails and of course, majestic Oak Trees. Other amenities include a cafeteria, dog park, fitness center and a large deck with ample seating.

Clancy & Theys Construction Company managed the 55,000 square foot expansion. Known nationwide in the industry for their excellence, they’ve successfully completed projects across 16 states, and are among the top 100 CM at-Risk providers.

As part of the deck expansion, ShadeFX customized two 24’ x 18’ motorized canopies for the industrial wooden frames. Live Oak Bank quickly recognized that its employees preferred the outdoor terraces with versatile shade protection. A request for an additional two 18’ x 14’ motorized retractable canopies followed shortly after. The Firesist Sand fabric blends with the laminated wood columns and cypress exterior.

“The team at ShadeFX has been an absolute pleasure to work alongside. From early design through installation to post-sale support, the service provided was second to none.

Even a direct hit from Hurricane Florence hasn’t stopped us from enjoying our canopies. As a result of the storm, our shades (amongst many other items on our campus) were damaged. ShadeFX was quick to help, sending replacement parts immediately.

We are in the construction phase of another 60,000 square foot facility and look forward to specifying ShadeFX in the project.”

– Chad Parker, Facilities Manager, Live Oak Bank

As Live Oak Bank continues to scale the business, ShadeFX continues to provide coverage just outside the reach of the mature Oak Trees.
