80,000 sf new construction - main office


PROJECT AWARD: Best Architectural/Equipment Solution by BankNews Innovative Solutions Award


Midland States Bank selected The Redmond Company to provide master planning, site selection and design services for its new four-story 80,000-square foot building in Effingham, Illinois. The building is the headquarters for the bank’s administrative, operations and finance divisions. Redmond began working with Midland as part of their strategic planning. The bank had hired a new management team and was projecting to grow its market share. Since then, the bank has experienced phenomenal growth, and needed a building that would “make a statement” in the community.


The result is a four-story building with an extensive glass exterior to provide day lighting throughout. Roof terraces and a patio blend the exterior environment with the interiors. The lobby atrium provides an open air feel to the common areas. The building is LEED® Silver and Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR. The building was also featured at the AIA National Convention.

We were thoroughly impressed with Redmond’s knowledge, preparation, communication, and teamwork. They have exceeded our expectations with this impressive main office design. We’ve already hired Redmond for another project.”
