After an extensive national search, we selected Redmond because of their knowledge and expertise with financials and LEED/Green Building. When experiencing fast-growth, it is critical to find someone who understands bank efficiencies and workflow operations, and knows how to design a facility that maximizes those efficiencies. We were thoroughly impressed with Redmond’s knowledge, preparation, communication, and teamwork. They have exceeded our expectations with this impressive main office design. We’ve already hired Redmond for another project.

We selected The Redmond Company for the design and construction of our new fully-branded facility in Jackson, Minnesota. Redmond’s distinctive retail design was exactly what we were looking for, as it truly helps us differentiate our “Great Experience” brand by providing a unique and welcoming atmosphere for our customers. We were so pleased with the Jackson branch design and process that we selected Redmond for two additional projects.
Redmond’s design team partnered with our marketing and IT staff to incorporate new technology and retail delivery systems that reinforced our brand and created a one of a kind dynamic retail branch. Redmond provided excellent communication throughout all phases from design through construction. We are extremely happy with the results and would strongly recommend Redmond to anyone.

Our branch deployment strategy involved acquiring existing banks, and re-branding and renovating those facilities. We hired The Redmond Company to perform a Physical Facility Needs Assessment on several different facilities in order to assist us in understanding the risks associated with the physical condition of each building, as well as to get a cost estimate for the necessary repairs and remodeling for each. Redmond has been an excellent resource for us, helping us to see the big picture prior to finalizing our strategic acquisitions within both new and existing markets.
– Tim McConville, President & CEO
At Town & Country Bank, we are very driven by our purpose and our unique approach to banking. We needed to create a physical space in which to deliver our desired customer experience. Redmond excelled at taking our philosophies and translating them into a functional space that is not only unique and attractive, but more importantly, based on our purpose. I would strongly encourage anyone considering a remodel or new facility to contact Redmond.

We had heard good things about The Redmond Company, and they lived up to their reputation. We have hired Redmond over the past several years to complete real estate (market feasibility) studies for us, of which we have been very pleased. So, when we found the right market to enter, Redmond was the easy and right choice to design and build our new branch. From the start, Redmond was a huge help, as they led the real estate process from researching and evaluating the optimal site; to assisting in both the acquisition of the property from a very tough seller, and negotiating with the neighboring Wal-Mart on access issues; to proposing and developing a new city street that dramatically improves the access to this highly visible and now very accessible site. Redmond took a very complex real estate development with many hurdles and made it manageable, while mitigating the credit unions risk at every step.
The Redmond Company has been a pleasure to work with, as they have truly listened to and collaborated with us on the design and construction of our attractive new retail branded branch! Redmond’s in-depth knowledge of credit union operations and financial branding was also obvious from the start. Redmond integrated our brand into the branch design through the creation of custom interactive venues that enrich the member experience and our connection to the community. The Redmond team created a branded branch design that paralleled our vision for the building, incorporating physical space areas that will be unique to our market, heightening our brand differentiation. We have been very pleased with The Redmond Company and would strongly recommend them to anyone.

As the Director of Facilities for a $1.6 billion credit union that has experienced good growth, it was critical to find a company that excelled in real estate analysis, cutting-edge design and branding, consumer purchasing patterns, technology, and construction. Specifically, we needed to find a company that would take the time to understand how we operate, while also reviewing our memberships’ needs, opinions and behaviors with the goal of creating great retail spaces and outstanding member experiences. We met with many companies, and then selected The Redmond Company as their experience and proven track record of success made them stand out above the rest.
As we are now approaching the completion of our first two projects, Redmond has become much more than our design/builder, they have become a trusted adviser and partner to the credit union, exceeding our expectations in every area! We knew Redmond’s experience was outstanding, but were impressed with their attention to detail, communication and commitment to our projects. It is clearly evident that leadership, integrity, innovation, and commitment set the standard for excellence at The Redmond Company. Simply stated, they are the Best Design/Build Company that I have ever worked with in my 25 years in this industry.
