The Redmond Company was selected by The Gifford State Bank to provide consulting and design-build services for their new branch in Thomasboro, IL. The Gifford State Bank acquired a building that housed a former bank and was also currently functioning as the village’s office and police station. The key to the project was to maintain operations of the village offices and police station, while renovating the building to match Gifford’s prototype branch. Phase I consisted of interior renovations, and was followed by exterior renovations in Phase II. The resulting building carries many of the key features of The Gifford State Bank’s prototype branch, which was developed by Redmond years earlier. This was the third project for The Gifford State Bank which included prototyping and branding features.
