UFCU Main Street

UFCU Main Street Mishawaka rendering

Modeled after the design of United Federal Credit Union’s Fletcher location, this 6,500-square foot branch facility will be located on Main Street in Mishawaka, Indiana.

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 Main Street location will be a brand-new ground up branch following the prototype design.

The Redmond Company is honored to have completed more than 15 projects for UFCU. We look forward to continuing our relationship on many additional projects in the coming years.

Pranke Retail

Pranke Retail Johnson Creek rendering

After the successful completion of several other projects for Mike Pranke and his development team, The Redmond Company was again selected for the design and construction of this new multi-tenant retail development in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin.

Located adjacent to a major shopping area, the building will house four or five tenants, including two restaurants in the endcap locations, within its 8,900-square feet. Carefully positioned on a 1-acre site, the building will feature detailed architecture on all four sides.

The site brings several challenges, including a large wetland area and significant grade changes, requiring the use of retaining walls in the site design. The site is bordered by streets on three sides, thus requiring zoning setbacks and further challenging Redmond’s site planners to develop an efficient yet aesthetically-pleasing layout.

Construction on this project is expected to begin in late summer 2017, with completion estimated for spring 2018.

American Bancor

American Bancor rendering

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.

Ettleson Hyundai

Ettleson Hyundai rendering

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.
