The Redmond Company was selected by a start-up company called Good Harvest Market for the tenant build-out of their first grocery store. It was critical that the store’s brand be established with this store so it could serve as a prototype for subsequent stores.
Redmond worked with the owner and assisted his architect in fine-tuning the design to not only convey its individual ‘look,’ but to also keep the store’s construction cost affordable. For example, Redmond’s value-added assistance helped design the open grid trellis system over the produce area. The system brought the lighting closer to the displays while still maintaining a high-bay ceiling without the cost of a dropped ceiling.
The store also included a multi-purpose community room. The cork floor accommodates pilates, tai-chi, and yoga classes. The commercial-grade kitchen holds cooking classes. Redmond was instrumental in working with the owner, the heating contractor, and the municipality to develop an acceptable modified exhaust system at a lower cost than a traditional exhaust system.
