The Witt Ford team relied on the expertise of The Redmond Company to help navigate the challenging regulatory and design obstacles that often arise during a construction project. By analyzing the property early on, The Redmond Company contributed its real estate development expertise to the project by maximizing the layout of the 10-acre site to accommodate the future development of a convenience store or other retailer on the site. Located at an intersection of two state highways, the Redmond team identified and coordinated the creation of access points to the dealership with the Department of Transportation, while solving a unique drainage problem for the site. Runoff from both highways in addition to the site itself led to the creation of a detention pond and culverts on the property.
From working with the Town of Maple Grove to acting as an intermediary with the Ford architects, the Redmond team handled the real estate development, design, and construction of this brand new ground-up Ford Trustmark Facility with technical precision and utmost professionalism while balancing the client’s budget and current and future needs with the specific requirements of the Ford image prototype to maximize the value of the project.
