Hurricane, WV

Farmers Bank, an Ohio-based bank chartered in 1904, remains an independently owned organization with branches in Mason & Point Pleasant, WV. Moving east into the state, Farmers selected a prominent site in the Teays Valley area for a flagship branch. The 13,000 square foot, two-story, brick and stone structure will give Farmers Bank a meaningful presence in the area. Pray Construction is proud to help Farmers Bank serve Putnam County and the surrounding area. We are also happy to work with Jerry Goff Architecture with whom we have a long-standing relationship.

The board of trustees has been working on a new bank building for fifteen years. Since 2015 President and CEO, Martha Haymaker, has worked with the board on developing the current site.

The design-build project, in partnership with Silling Architects, is 6,800 square foot main branch and drive-through in the heart of St. Marys and will be a great addition to the area. We broke ground on the bank’s 120th anniversary in March and finished the project in early October 2017.

The bank was designed by Little Diversified Architectural Consulting’s Charlotte, NC office.

When Fairmont-based MVB Bank expanded their presence in southern West Virginia, they selected Pray Construction to collaborate with their design team to deliver a 30,000 square-foot, $6 million office building and bank. From groundbreaking to ribbon-cutting was only 11 months, meeting a very aggressive schedule. The building is a local model of energy efficiency by creating a high-performance building skin that used a closed cell spray foam insulation process and an energy efficient window system. The bank lobby is state-of-the-art with automated banking experience without the traditional teller line.
