We love Redmond's webcam on our new branch project. Everyone on our staff uses it to keep up-to-date on the progress of construction.
We hired The Redmond Company to see our project through site zoning and planning to the completion of the building of our new branch office and remodeling of our current office. We were kept informed of progress at all times and are very happy with the service and professionalism they have shown us. Their whole team is great and a real pleasure to do business with.
I can't say enough about the professionalism of the entire staff at The Redmond Company. We were very satisfied with the results of Redmond's consulting services, the design staff spent countless hours with me on the design of the building, and the actual building portion of the project went very well.
We had questions about our presence in the Franklin market. Redmond's consulting staff assisted us in answering those, and their design and construction staff gave us a great new look that we'll use for our new branches.
It was great working with the Redmond team on our Main Office remodel. They're good people who kept us informed of our project status. Our entire operation has been turned around and our staff and members are really happy.
We chose Redmond based on their experience in the financial market. I couldn't be more satisfied. I would strongly recommend Redmond to anyone - they delivered quality in every step, from architectural design through construction.
The Redmond Company brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to our project. From facility programming through construction, they provided top-quality service. We are very pleased with The Redmond Company and will be calling them when we are ready for our next branch.
From the initial planning to completion, The Redmond Company exceeded our expectations. Their knowledge, experience and professionalism were clearly evident throughout the entire project. We couldn’t be more proud to have The Redmond Company as our strategic space planning partner.
The results are extraordinary! The Redmond Company uses a partnership approach during the entire process of building a facility. The new branch is earning rave reviews from clients, employees, and the Bank's Board of Directors.
Redmond did a great job with our remodel. Their design team made our space much more functional and comfortable and the project managers took care of all of the details for us. I would definitely work with Redmond again.
The Redmond web cam has been extremely beneficial. It allowed me to monitor the daily progress at the job site from any location, and allowed our staff, Board of Directors, and members to do the same. This is just one more example of Redmond's commitment to keeping their clients informed and involved.

We selected Redmond to provide us with a thorough analysis of locations and sites which would provide the greatest opportunity for car sales and service. It was on the strength of Redmond's expert performance from their consulting group that we also selected them to design and build our new, ground-up, dual-franchise dealership. The results are fantastic!
It was a great experience working with Redmond. Every step of the way, their knowledge of dealership operations and processes, and their coordination of the design and construction process provided our team with a sense of security that we've never known before on other new facility projects. We will definitely hire Redmond again.
The Redmond team understands the business, is visionary and has a keen sense of what works in this fast paced, ever changing world. Ten years ago, they walked into my store and gave me a blue print for success. They developed a setting and design that, to this day, people still comment on how unique my store is. Our business has grown for eight straight years. I owe Redmond for my new retail approach to doing business. I have never been more successful, and to Redmond, I am grateful.
From day one Redmond’s dealership experience and knowledge of the manufacturer’s brand program benefited us. After reviewing the manufacturer’s proposed plan for our dealership’s renovations, Redmond was able to share with us cost-saving alternatives that not only would save construction costs but would also improve our dealership’s operational functions.
One of the many reasons we selected The Redmond Company for our GMFI project was their superior design/build process. Redmond’s team from Architect to Job Superintendent demonstrated extensive knowledge of GM’s Facility Image Program and the process. Plus, there was the added benefit of using our local customers who are tradespeople. Redmond lowered our estimated construction costs while still meeting GM’s corporate guidelines. We received compliance on our first submittal.
The Redmond Company’s in-depth knowledge and understanding of GM’s Facility Image Program was one of the main reasons we selected them for the construction of our remodel project. Redmond worked directly with our Zone Manager and GM’s architect to negotiate cost-saving changes and alternatives. Redmond’s team impressed us with their creative problem solving skills during the construction of the project. Redmond’s ability to walk us through every step of the GM process, coupled with their proven expertise in dealership operations made them the best choice for our project.
From my first contact to project completion The Redmond Company exceeded every one of my expectations. They provided the vital link to the manufacturer process, broke it down into manageable tasks and worked toward a plan that met the manufacturer requirements while being attuned to my desires. The dedicated team assigned to my project—architect, project manager, and on site supervisor all worked to find savings and provide me with the best value possible. As a result, the disruption to my business was minimal, the project was completed two months ahead of schedule, and was 10% under budget—a remarkable accomplishment in a remodeling project. I strongly endorse The Redmond Company to anyone considering a building project.
We needed a design and construction firm that had the resources and experience negotiating with manufacturer’s architects. Redmond diligently worked with the manufacturer and their architect to obtain approval for a facility design that met my vision for the dealership, while at the same time, complied with GM’s program requirements. The process required multiple iterations of the facility’s design, as well as persistence working through the manufacturer’s communication process. The results are impressive! I would highly recommend Redmond to any auto dealer.
On the same week a few months ago, three of my Walgreens stores broke ground. All three GC's were very Walgreens experienced. To their credit, Redmond's store is the only one that beat the freeze, has a slab, and is well ahead of the others. I compliment the entire team at Redmond along with their subcontractors on a job well done. I truly am impressed.
We were extremely impressed with The Redmond Company’s ability to lead us through the pre-construction process; from budgeting and scheduling to coordinating all of the bidding. Redmond's experience in retail construction paid dividends by delivering a quality project, on-time, and within budget; and by allowing for a smooth transition upon turnover to our tenant. I found everyone in the organization from the top on down to be knowledgeable, courteous, and responsive to our needs. I look forward to working with The Redmond Company on future projects.
The results of Redmond's operation and facility master planning services along with their suggested retail sales program really set the direction for our credit union. Their expertise and knowledge of operations, staffing requirements, and master planning was clearly evident as they walked us through the strategic planning sessions. Marty Steinert and Jim Voelz from Redmond really took the time to review our business and were great to work with. I would highly recommend Redmond to others for any strategic planning needs.
We selected The Redmond Company based on a great past experience we had with them on a ground-up facility. Everyone from the design team to the construction crews at Redmond was very sensitive to our needs on this renovation/addition and as a result, we had no interruption in business. Both the Bank and the community couldn’t be more proud of the finished facility. We would strongly recommend Redmond and their dedicated team of professionals for anyone’s construction needs.
We've interviewed and worked with other firms, but hands down, The Redmond Company is the best Design/Build firm. I was really impressed by the wide range of services and overall financial knowledge they provided me. From consulting services and retailing concepts to their commitment to my schedule and budget, they really came through for me. I highly recommend The Redmond Company for any financial project, in fact I was so impressed that I have hired them again to complete my next bank project.
Redmond really listened to our needs. They made initial recommendations based on their experience and then made adjustments throughout the project based on our feedback. We partnered with them the entire way. The project was delivered on time and on budget. We would definitely recommend them for anyone considering a new branch.
We were looking for a builder with extensive experience in the design and construction of financial institutions. We also needed a firm that had the resources to finish the job in a relatively short period of time. Redmond came through for us in both areas. We started construction in April and opened our doors in August. How many design/build firms would have been able to do that?
The Redmond Company guided us through the entire process, from facility programming to selecting and purchasing the perfect site, to designing and building our Main Office. Redmond's understanding of and experience in the financial industry was clearly evident as they lead us through uncharted waters. I am very pleased and would highly recommend Redmond to anyone.
Our challenge was to add an addition to our historic building, renovate it, and give it a face lift while maintaining the character and integrity of the original design. We hired Redmond as our design/builder and they stepped up to the challenge and exceeded our expectations. Any concerns about hiring an out of town firm to handle the project were quickly put to rest when Redmond worked with us to contract all the work locally and helped us maintain our valued relationships in the community. Redmond was a great choice for us and we look forward to working with them in the future.
We've used The Redmond Company for many branch developments and have found them to be a high-integrity firm, delivering a high-quality product. And while they are very experienced in building banking facilities, they have also demonstrated sensitivity to our unique needs - not assuming we want to mirror what others in our industry are doing. I would highly recommend them as a design/build partner.
From a banker’s standpoint, it was really impressive to be able to coordinate everything by making just one phone call. The efficiency of The Redmond Company’s single-source capabilities was fantastic. From consulting services to retailing concepts, the wide range of services and overall financial knowledge went beyond my expectations. Their repeat performance for us was outstanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Redmond to anyone looking for a design/build firm.
Several years ago we interviewed a number of companies and selected The Redmond Company because of their outstanding reputation in the consulting, design, and construction of financial facilities. We found them to be an excellent one-stop resource that helped guide us through our facilities planning. Since then, we have hired Redmond to complete two of our projects, in addition to a number of consulting studies. We have been extremely pleased with all aspects of their services from consulting, design, and construction. We consider them to be a trusted advisor with whom we have a maintained a great relationship! We would strongly recommend them to anyone needing these services.
Every month I travel out to each of the Bank's branches to meet with the Branch Executive Officer. I use the meeting to find out how things are going, gather client information and make sure that all is well. This morning I was at the Waukesha Office and as I was talking to the Branch Executive Officer, Kathy Macht, she relayed a story about Andy Young. I thought I would share it with you.
Andy was in the branch this month getting change for an event taking place at Redmond. He noticed that we had a food barrel in the lobby for the Hunger Task Force. He also noticed that the barrel was empty. Kathy said he left and returned with two bags of groceries from Pick and Save to place in the barrel. He told her he did not want the barrel to be empty, since he knew that the barrel we had at the lobby of the Greenfield office was full.
When I talk about the Bank's relationship with the Redmond Company, I make sure that everyone understands the difference between a "vendor" and a "partner". A vendor completes a task, does nothing more and waits to be paid. A partner looks at the entire relationship and works with me to make sure that all aspects of a shared project have been well thought out and addressed. I believe that The Redmond Company is our partner. Not only do Redmond employees I have an opportunity to work with do a great job on building projects we have but they also carry that concern to all their interactions with the Bank. Andy's caring gesture is just the most recent example of our partnership at work. And I wanted to let you know that I appreciate having The Redmond Company as a partner.
We had met with several other companies prior to selecting The Redmond Company. We chose Redmond for our new branch based on their comprehensive design/build experience and recommendations from other bankers in the area. Redmond led us through the process from programming, due diligence, planning and zoning, design, and through construction. They were always in communication with us during the entire project from start to finish. The expertise, professionalism, and integrity of the company is evident from the architects, project managers, to the job superintendent. It was truly an enjoyable experience to work with The Redmond Company - in fact we will be selecting them for our next remodel. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a consulting/design/build expert.
After an extensive national search, we selected Redmond because of their knowledge and expertise with financials and LEED/Green Building. When experiencing fast-growth, it is critical to find someone who understands bank efficiencies and workflow operations, and knows how to design a facility that maximizes those efficiencies. We were thoroughly impressed with their knowledge, preparation, communication, and teamwork. They have exceeded our expectations with this impressive main office design. We’ve already hired Redmond for another project.
Just a note to express our appreciation for the fine job your firm has been doing for us.
When we launched our project, The Redmond Company was highly recommended. As we compared your credentials with other qualified architecture firms, your competencies in the banking sector truly stood out. So we selected Redmond for the design of our financial center to be prominently located in East Peoria's new downtown.
Your Redmond professionals worked closely with our team to develop a timeless design. It reflects the heritage of the Bank's brand while speaking to our future.
It's a pleasure to be working with Redmond's team, and we're looking forward to serving our customers from this well-designed facility for many years to come.
We selected The Redmond Company for the design and construction of our new fully-branded facility in Jackson, MN. Redmond’s distinctive retail design was exactly what we were looking for, as it truly helps us differentiate our “Great Experience” brand by providing a unique and welcoming atmosphere for our customers. We were so pleased with the Jackson branch design and process that we selected Redmond for two additional projects. Redmond’s design team partnered with our marketing and IT staff to incorporate new technology and retail delivery systems that reinforced our brand and created a one of a kind dynamic retail branch. Redmond provided excellent communication throughout all phases from design through construction. We are extremely happy with the results and would strongly recommend Redmond to anyone.
Our branch deployment strategy involved acquiring existing banks, and re-branding and renovating those facilities. We hired The Redmond Company to perform a Physical Facility Needs Assessment on several different facilities in order to assist us in understanding the risks associated with the physical condition of each building, as well as to get a cost estimate for the necessary repairs and remodeling for each. Redmond has been an excellent resource for us, helping us to see the big picture prior to finalizing our strategic acquisitions within both new and existing markets.
At Town & Country Bank, we are very driven by our purpose and our unique approach to banking. We needed to create a physical space in which to deliver our desired customer experience. Redmond excelled at taking our philosophies and translating them into a functional space that is not only unique and attractive, but more importantly, based on our purpose. I would strongly encourage anyone considering a remodel or new facility to contact Redmond.
We had heard good things about The Redmond Company, and they lived up to their reputation. We have hired Redmond over the past several years to complete real estate (market feasibility) studies for us, of which we have been very pleased. So, when we found the right market to enter, Redmond was the easy and right choice to design and build our new branch. From the start, Redmond was a huge help, as they led the real estate process from researching and evaluating the optimal site; to assisting in both the acquisition of the property from a very tough seller, and negotiating with the neighboring Wal-Mart on access issues; to proposing and developing a new city street that dramatically improves the access to this highly visible and now very accessible site. Redmond took a very complex real estate development with many hurdles and made it manageable, while mitigating the credit unions risk at every step.
The Redmond Company has been a pleasure to work with, as they have truly listened to and collaborated with us on the design and construction of our attractive new retail branded branch! Redmond’s in-depth knowledge of credit union operations and financial branding was also obvious from the start. Redmond integrated our brand into the branch design through the creation of custom interactive venues that enrich the member experience and our connection to the community. The Redmond team created a branded branch design that paralleled our vision for the building, incorporating physical space areas that will be unique to our market, heightening our brand differentiation. We have been very pleased with The Redmond Company and would strongly recommend them to anyone.
The Redmond Company is our trusted Design/Build partner for MANY reasons. Over the past 8 years, we have worked with Redmond on many different projects from market/demographic studies, to creating and building our prototype branch, to enhancing our corporate brand image. Every time Redmond has impressed us with their professionalism, integrity, commitment to excellence, and certainly their knowledge of credit union operations and new technology offerings.
We have enjoyed using Redmond as a single source for our design/build projects and it has saved us both time and money. Redmond’s commitment to our projects has been outstanding, and they stand behind their work, even after the warranty ends. Redmond’s integrity and core values stand out above the rest.
Our company is experiencing growth and opportunity… In our competitive landscape it was important to us to work with a company that would take the time to understand our strategic growth objectives, our bank’s brand, and the uniqueness of our team. We were pleased to see the passion and commitment that Redmond showed us on deployment studies, implementing an identifiable brand within our facilities and the overall design and construction of our facilities.
With The Redmond Company our projects were managed extremely well. We were impressed with the outstanding communication level; their ability to meet deadlines, budgets projections and the finish date they had communicated. I would highly recommend The Redmond Company as an outstanding design/build partner.
We have been extremely pleased with The Redmond Company on all of our projects. The recently completed Fairmont branch was our third project with them. Redmond has taken our corporate branding to a new level with our new branch prototype -- it is warm, inviting, and truly reflects our brand of “Great Experience.” Redmond’s team represents the integrity we look for in a design/build partnership. We would wholeheartedly recommend Redmond to anyone.
As the Director of Facilities for a $1.6 billion credit union that has experienced good growth, it was critical to find a company that excelled in: real estate analysis, cutting edge design and branding, consumer purchasing patterns, technology, and construction. Specifically, we needed to find a company that would take the time to understand how we operate, while also reviewing our memberships’ needs, opinions and behaviors with the goal of creating great retail spaces and outstanding member experiences. We met with many companies, and then selected The Redmond Company as their experience and proven track record of success made them stand out above the rest.
As we are now approaching the completion of our first two projects, Redmond has become much more than our design/builder, they have become a trusted advisor and partner to the credit union, exceeding our expectations in every area! We knew Redmond’s experience was outstanding, but were impressed with their attention to detail, communication and commitment to our projects. It is clearly evident that leadership, integrity, innovation, and commitment set the standard for excellence at The Redmond Company. Simply stated, they are the Best Design/Build Company that I have ever worked with in my 25 years in this industry.
From beginning to end our experience with Redmond was enjoyable. Redmond interviewed our employees and knew the questions to ask so that end product was not only beautiful, but functions well for how we operate our business. Redmond’s Superintendent was excellent to work with. He kept the project on pace and brought it in on time and on budget. More importantly, he handled the day-to-day questions and problems and allowed us to focus on the business of banking rather than bank remodeling. Everyone at Redmond was great to work with and we appreciate the extra help they gave us on a few extra projects that we did while the remodel progressed. We are pleased that we selected Redmond for our project and would use them again.
The Redmond Company was hired as the general contractor for the Staybridge Suites Hotel project in Franklin, WI. Redmond’s early involvement in the project allowed us to evaluate multiple structural systems and the costs for building prior to design implementation and bidding, this proved to be extremely valuable in minimizing project costs. The structural system selected was a creative solution that allowed us to work through a Wisconsin winter while minimizing the cost impact of enclosures and temporary heat. Redmond’s involvement in navigating the due diligence phase also proved to be extremely beneficial with environmental challenges, legal, and contaminated soil issues. Working closely with the municipality we were able to plan for the extra steps that were required. The Redmond Company’s expertise proved to be invaluable to our project and I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
The people of Franklin have waited many years for a new, quality hotel in which to house their friends, family and business associates. The community is excited about the arrival of the Staybridge Suites hotel in Franklin. The Redmond Company has been extremely responsive in working with the City of Franklin and other governing authorities. We applaud their success in overcoming the project challenges associated with site access, natural wetlands, floodplain, on-site detention and the requirements of the 27th street corridor overlay to the master plan. The Redmond Company has done an excellent job of coordinating the construction efforts associated with this project and we look forward to working with them in our community on future projects.
We are always impressed with The Redmond Company. They are experts at designing facilities, working with city planning departments, and finding unique solutions to difficult site scenarios. The success of our projects is due to The Redmond Company’s vast experience in addition to their focus on meeting our project goals. We have worked with them to build multiple facilities, and look forward to working with them again on our future design/build and renovation projects. We like Redmond because they simplify the development process. We're confident they'll get the job done so that we can move onto the next deal.
Having worked with Redmond on several challenging projects before, we knew they would be up for our most recent challenge. We are currently expanding in Oshkosh area and knew that if we could open the Oshkosh location in time for the EAA AirVenture show, we would have a chance to compete for Qdoba's contest of most sales in one day for a grand opening. Redmond helped make that goal possible. They completed our Oshkosh location in 13 weeks. We are thrilled with the project and excited to share that we did make that goal and Redmond was a key member of the team to help us accomplish it.
Now that we’re settled into the new building I wanted to share my thoughts on the process. First, we couldn’t be more pleased with how the project turned out. As you know this was the second time we’ve worked with Redmond. Our prior experience exposed us to your design and project management services. When we outgrew that facility we again turned to Redmond.
This time the project involved consideration of both renovation of existing buildings and new construction. Your expertise in real estate and development allowed us to explore the economics of a wide range of options. Prior to finalizing our offer to purchase the building we now occupy, Redmond provided a detailed analysis of the building. That analysis provided the information we needed to move forward with the purchase.
This project was much more complicated and involved than the first one but your design team was exceptional. They worked with us at each step in the process to ensure we considered options and end use. The communications between the Redmond design team/project manager and our staff was exceptional! When things required follow up, they got done. Your subcontractors were excellent and they were held to the project schedule. There were no surprises and we finished on time and on budget! We feel with Redmond’s expertise we have met our goal to design a building that will meet our needs for the next 10 -15 years. Everyone that has seen the building has been very complimentary.
Good work and pass on our thanks to your staff!!!
"I selected The Redmond Company as the general contractor for a chain store tenant build-out at my shopping center. Redmond’s expertise during the due diligence process was instrumental in reducing costs on the project as well as identifying potential problems. I was impressed by Redmond’s attention to detail and excellent communication throughout the project. I would not hesitate to recommend The Redmond Company to any developer looking to complete their construction project in a timely and efficient manner."
“Having worked with The Redmond Company for many years, I can attest to their professionalism and efficiency working on grocery store projects. The synergy between our two firms has resulted in the Redmond Team’s success in exceeding grocery client expectations. Redmond’s Field Superintendents are sensitive to reducing any inconvenience, inside or outside the stores, and therefore, have gained respect from store owners and managers. Their interpretation of architectural drawings in the field has made each construction project move smoothly and without delays.”
Steven R. Gartman, President
The Albion Group, Inc.
The Redmond Company’s operational procedures impressed me. Their ability to lead the project and their communications with our Store Manager was exceptional. Redmond was sensitive to and thoroughly understood the importance of minimizing any inconvenience to our customers. Their grocery/retail experience was also evident in how they kept traffic flowing smoothly into and out of our grocery store. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a design/build partner.
I hired The Redmond Company based upon the creative conceptual design they presented. I’m even more pleased with the finished results. They did an outstanding job of understanding my vision for the project while incorporating their expertise in grocery store aesthetics. This refacade project exceeded our expectations.
We were considering buying a building to house our company. It was priced attractively and in a good location. Because it was older than we would have preferred, we felt it necessary to identify all issues and costs relevant to our company moving in. We contacted The Redmond Company to do a complete building analysis. Their condition report opened our eyes as to what the total cost would be to renovate and prepare the facility for our use. Had we not contracted with Redmond, we may have bought the building and made a poor and very costly business decision.
I found The Redmond Company to be very professional and knowledgeable in the field of design/build construction, but more importantly, I found the people of Redmond to be of high integrity and honesty and they will be my first choice on any future developments.
The Redmond Company has just completed the last of many projects they have done for us. This was an extremely complicated project involving new construction, tenant relocations, demolition, and site work on an operating shopping center. Their performance, as usual, was exceptional. Their knowledge and professionalism saved hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the project was brought in ahead of schedule. My next project will have Redmond’s name on it.
Without hesitation, I can say that I could not have asked for a better team to work with. The Redmond Company’s Project Manager was incredibly well organized and his attention to detail was superior. I’ve worked on numerous hotel development projects and I firmly believe that Redmond’s Job Superintendent is one of the most meticulous and hands-on field person that I have worked with; his work ethic, his drive to successfully deliver the project and his understanding of the complexities of this particular development have been outstanding.
We’ve hired The Redmond Company for several of our dialysis clinic projects. In each case, the project was assigned a courteous and professional project manager, the work was completed on time and on budget, and the quality was outstanding. I would recommend Redmond without reservation.
