PROJECT AWARD: Silver Design Excellence Award Office/Corporate 9,999 sf by ASID Wisconsin
The Redmond Company was proud to partner with Financial Plus Credit Union to design and build a new, state of the art, retail inspired 7,200 sf, branch. The new branch enhances the member experience in Morris, Illinois. The building design will also become the new prototype for Financial Plus Credit Union and will be used in other markets as they continue to grow.
The building was designed with a double height eyebrow feature that allows interior branding to be visible from the exterior of the building. This architectural feature creates a unique, interactive interior, drawing members into the branch. As the industry moves forward with technology, Financial Plus Credit Union also wanted to incorporate technology into the design of the new branch to improve Member Service and operational efficiency.
The Redmond Company took pride in creating unique solutions to the client’s objectives throughout the project process. Needing the existing branch to be fully operational throughout construction, the placement of the new building was key. Redmond was able to achieve this by strategically placing the building in a highly visible location on the site, while not disturbing the existing facility.
“We knew we wanted to enhance the member experience and create a buzz with a bold, technology focused, retail inspired branch. The Redmond team was great to work with and exceeded our expectations! They listened to our ideas and incorporated them strategically and consistently to the design to create a beautiful space that reflects our brand. They also used their extensive knowledge of financials to improve member experience and operational efficiency. The new branch is truly a unique and exciting experience for our members. We’re so pleased, we hired Redmond to design and build our main office.”
