Construction Financing

Short-term funds for building possibilities

You are ready to start constructing or enhancing your business, and need short-term financing to break ground. We can help.

If you are a small business owner looking to construct or modernize a facility, we can provide the funds to bring your blueprint to life.

Construction Plans

What is construction financing?

Constructing or modernizing a building can be costly. Sometimes referred to as a construction mortgage, construction loans are specialized financing designed to fund your project. Funds are provided to builders or business owners as a short-term line of credit to cover the costs throughout the construction phase. Funds can be used for either modifying a building already in use, or constructing a building from the ground up. Our competitive interest rates are only applied to the portions of the loan that are used.

Why apply for a construction loan?

  • Make upgrades to modernize your company’s facility.
  • Build a new facility to grow your business.
  • Expand your building to accommodate a growing workforce.

What you will need to secure a line of credit

Construction loans are considered risky and require prerequisites prior to approval. When you apply for a construction loan, we ask that you provide the following:

  • A timetable of the project. Your loan will be dispersed in accordance with the timetable provided.
  • A realistic budget for the project. This allows us to give you the right amount of financing to cover the entire project until construction is complete.
  • Construction details and project plan. This includes floor plans and building materials. As your partner, we want to ensure the work is completed and your vision comes to life.

Applying for construction financing can sometimes feel like a job in itself, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Our seasoned bankers are prepared to walk you through the entire process, and help you obtain everything you need to get started.

“The relationship with my banker is key…you gotta believe in your banker and the banker has to believe in you.”

Are you a small business owner?

You know that achieving and maintaining growth sometimes requires you to expand or modernize the facility in which you operate. A construction loan allows you to take control of the future of your company, by making the necessary upgrades you need to succeed.

Construction financing gives you access to funds in accordance with a drawdown schedule to ensure funds are used appropriately. Interest is only paid on the amount you use.

Once construction is complete, the short-term loan can be refinanced into a permanent or long-term loan to finance future projects and additional business expenses.
