American Bancor

The Redmond Company was selected to provide real estate consulting services including site recommendation and the selection of the 1-acre site in Bismarck, ND for American Bancor. Redmond is also designing and will be building the new ground-up multi-tenant facility.

The new facility will be designed using elements that are similar to American Bancor’s existing facility to build on brand recognition. The design includes a metal roof and flat metal panels to call attention to the main facade facing the main street. A raised clerestory will run the length of the bank property. The bank’s entrance will be marked with smooth cast stone. Large canopies will act as sunshades above each oversized retail window. Horizontal wood panels along the roofline will offer a unique architectural detail.

A unique detail of this project is that the new building is designed to be a multi-tenant facility. American Bancor will house its branch operations in approximately 2,250 square feet while the remaining 2,009 square feet will be leased to a retail tenant.

Currently in design, the project is expected to begin construction in spring 2017 with construction completion in late fall 2017.

Elmhurst BMW

Currently in the design phase, The Redmond Company’s automotive experts have been selected to design and build an addition and complete a remodel of the Elmhurst BMW dealership in Elmhurst, Illinois.

The 50,000-square foot project entails the demolition of the existing showroom and re-creating it to meet BMW’s current corporate standards. Additionally, the Redmond team will be renovating the existing service drive and an existing empty garage. The new service area will feature 25 service bays and 4 detailing bays.

The impressive showroom will be an open 2-story design featuring a 30-foot glass wall at the front of the showroom. Administrative and executive offices will be housed on the second floor with an open balcony overlooking the showroom. The new BMW corporate standards feature a unique “street” concept for the vehicle displays. The vehicles will be arranged in a line down the showroom, as if they were driving on the road. A white slice wall will feature the exceptional M-series and I-series vehicles.

The building’s exterior will feature substantial glass and white EIFS.

The project is expected to begin construction in summer 2017.

Ettleson Hyundai

The owners at Ettleson Hyundai in Countryside, Illinois were given a vacant 3-acre plot of land owned by the city with a promise to reinvigorate the area with the development of a new car dealership. After a successful design/build project on their Cadillac Buick GMC store in Hodgkins, Illinois, the Ettleson team again selected the Redmond team to design and build their new Hyundai/Genesis store.

Currently in the design phase, the 25,500-square foot Global Dealership Space Identity (GDSI)-compliant facility will follow Hyundai/Genesis design specifications. This will include a unique architectural design concept which incorporates textural elements meant to emulate the sky and trees. The open and airy showroom will be based around three design elements – Landscape, Vertical Green and Shaped Sky. There will also be a specific space for Hyundai’s new-to-the-U.S. luxury brand, Genesis, in the Genesis Studio. In this showroom, customers will be able to explore and touch the options available for their new vehicle’s custom interior and exterior.

To maximize parking on the site, Redmond’s design team will be utilizing an underground detention system which will collect the site’s run-off water into large pipes buried under the facility. Gradually, this water will be released into the city’s sewer so as not to overwhelm the system during high-volume storms. Additionally, the Redmond team will be pursuing city approval for paving setbacks reductions to further maximize the parking on the site.

The project is scheduled to be completed in early 2018.

Fields Jaguar Land Rover Volvo Waukesha

After completing a successful project for the Fields Jaguar Land Rover Volvo team previously at their Madison location, the Fields automotive team has selected The Redmond Company to design and build a new Volvo-mandated showroom and renovate their existing Jaguar Land Rover showroom at their Waukesha, Wisconsin dealership.

With their current facility optimally positioned on a highly-trafficked road, the Fields group elected to buy the adjacent property to expand its facilities and parking lot. The existing facility, which currently features all three of their brands in one showroom, will be renovated to showcase only Jaguar and Land Rover products. A new Volvo showroom along with a Volvo reception area will be constructed adjacent to the existing showroom.

By utilizing the existing showroom facilities, the Redmond design team will be working around multiple structural support columns. As the columns are essential to the structural integrity of the building, they cannot be altered.

An additional challenge of the project will be the site itself. There are significant grade changes in the site – there is nearly a 15′ difference between the site’s main access point and the existing showroom. The owner has requested that the new Volvo showroom sit at the same grade-level as the existing showroom. As a result, extensive earthwork will be required, along with creative site planning and use of retaining walls.

Currently in the design phase, the 9,000-square foot Volvo showroom is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2017 and the 12,000-square foot renovation of the existing Jaguar Land Rover showroom will finish in Spring 2018.

Also currently in design is the new Fields Jaguar Land Rover facility in Madison, Wisconsin.
