Veridian Credit Union – Legacy Branch

Veridian Credit Union 144th & Center in Omaha, Nebraska exterior rendering

Veridian Credit Union utilized the real estate consulting services in selecting the site on 170th & Center in Omaha, Nebraska for their newest branch location.
For this particular site, a parking lot parcel was acquired and the new branch, which follows Veridian’s prototype design, will be built.

The prototype, designed by Redmond, will be tweaked slightly to fit within the parameters of the new site and as needed to meet municipal requirements. However, because the branch will be similar in design and materials to the other branches, Veridian Credit Union will experience a drastic savings because there is no need to repeatedly design the branch from square one.

The Redmond Company will also be performing the construction of this building which is estimated to be completed in May 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.

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.

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.

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.
