“Building a brand new Key branch is much more than creating financial opportunities,” says Mark Phillips, Corporate Real Estate Solution Construction Manager. “It’s also about building lasting relationships with our clients, communities, vendors and employees.” When lining up the vendors that will actually construct our branches or any construction project much thought goes into now only how the project is built but also who is engaged in bringing the project to life.
INLINE Commercial Construction Inc. was recently selected for the Bainbridge Island project in Washington. INLINE is a diverse, family owned company based in Aloha, Ore. INLINE has worked with KeyBank for the past seven years on over fifty KeyBank projects.
Remarking about their relationship with KeyBank, INLINE founder and CEO Dave Flint commented, “KeyBank has been not only a great client, but a valued partner to INLINE. Our work with KeyBank has been a very rewarding experience. From maintenance projects to construction of new turnkey banks, the communication and follow-through from the team has shown a successful track record that proves how solid the relationship is. KeyBank has also proven to be a premier partner in all aspects of banking. INLINE is truly honored to continue to grow our relationship and expand our capacities in every manner.”
INLINE was chosen for the Bainbridge Island project not only on bid results but because of their history of top notch execution and performance. Like any truly mutually beneficial relationship, challenges are faced as a team. The strong, long-term partnership between Key and INLINE has resulted in shorter deliveries, higher product quality and lower cost.
“Based on the results of our new LEED certified branch in the Eugene market, INLINE understands our needs,” says John Nolting, Senior Vice President/RSL, Oregon & Alaska. “INLINE not only won the business but earned the right for more business.”
“Corporate Real Estate Solutions is dedicated to creating value not only in the projects we build but the relationships we maintain with our clients and vendors,” says Kane Kretzinger, Director, Corporate Real Estate Solutions. “This is a great example of a team coming together to create a mutually beneficial relationship.”
