UFCU Stevensville

Modeled after the design of United Federal Credit Union’s Fletcher location, this 3,500-square foot branch facility will be located in Stevensville, Michigan. The Fletcher location was the first implementation of the prototype model which was created by the financial design experts at The Redmond Company. By implementing this prototype design at each new location as they grow their organization through their branch deployment process, UFCU has been able to dramatically reduce their costs and maximize their budget. Rather than re-design a new building for each new site, the team utilizes the same basic concept and makes modifications to the building size as needed to appropriately fit the site’s size, topography, and access points. Additionally, depending on zoning requirements and municipal regulations, modifications can be made to the exterior facade, if needed, to meet any architectural guidelines required by the community. The Stevensville location will be an update of the existing branch facility to the prototype’s design. This will include both interior and exterior finish updates. The Redmond Company is honored to have been selected for more than 20 projects for UFCU. We look forward to continuing our relationship on many additional projects in the coming years.

Bank Midwest – New Ulm

Bank Midwest New Ulm Bank Midwest was looking for more space in their existing New Ulm, Minnesota branch facility. As a result, this new 6,415-square foot ground-up facility will replace the existing branch. Design and built by The Redmond Company, the new branch facility will implement the bank’s branded designs while paying homage to the former historic building on the site with stone arched windows. A historic marker and park space on the site will commemorate this historic New Ulm residence and the utilization of the re-purposed bricks in the design of the park benches. The building will use an energy-efficient hot water heating system with in-floor radiant heat, utilizing steam from the city, as its heating source. Bank Midwest has a strong tradition of incorporating technology into their customer experience. The New Ulm branch will also include multiple retail touch points including a multi-panel touch screen information wall, a large media wall behind the tellers, tablet stations by the waiting area, and an afterhours ITM in the vestibule. The bank’s strong connection to the New Ulm community will be portrayed in a large community mural above the teller pods. The New Ulm branch will be the 5th project The Redmond Company has completed for Bank Midwest. Check out our other Bank Midwest projects:

El Paso Teachers Federal Credit Union – Operations Center

El Paso Teachers Federal Credit Union rendering Currently under construction and on schedule to be fully completed in Spring of 2018, The Redmond Company has designed and is building a new Operations Center for the El Paso Teachers Federal Credit Union in El Paso, Texas. This two-story, 32,000-square foot facility will accommodate the Credit Union’s current employees and allows for room and growth for the next 10 years. When fully utilized, the building will be able to house a projected 180 employees. The Operations Center has numerous design features to encourage a healthy and collaborative workplace. A centrally-located cafe will act as a social hub and greeting space for the building. A spacious break room will act as a retreat from workstations and will offer employees ample daylight and varying seating options. LED lighting will be incorporated throughout the facility as a ‘green’ solution to lighting, while natural daylighting floods the building with light and outdoor views from all open and private office spaces. The work spaces will have furniture featuring ergonomically-designed solutions, including sit-stand elements. The multiple conference rooms of varying sizes will provide the Credit Union with greatly-needed meeting space. The interior design of the Operations Center have been described as “playful”, providing employees an interesting work environment. The construction of this project will utilize more than 50 local construction companies, suppliers, and vendors and will employ over 150 local tradespeople. Nearly 90% of the project costs will be reinvested in the firms that live and work in the El Paso area.   Learn more about our other Financial Large Facility Projects:
