Modeled after the design of United Federal Credit Union’s Fletcher location, this 6,500-square foot branch facility is located on Ireland Road in South Bend, Indiana. The Fletcher location was the first implementation of the prototype model which was created by the financial design experts at The Redmond Company. By implementing this prototype design at each new location as they grow their organization through their branch deployment process, UFCU has been able to dramatically reduce their costs and maximize their budget. Rather than re-design a new building for each new site, the team utilizes the same basic concept and makes modifications to the building size as needed to appropriately fit the site’s size, topography, and access points. Additionally, depending on zoning requirements and municipal regulations, modifications can be made to the exterior facade, if needed, to meet any architectural guidelines required by the community. The Ireland Road location is a brand-new ground up branch following the prototype design.

 

The Redmond Company is honored to have been selected for more than 20 projects for UFCU. We look forward to continuing our relationship on many additional projects in the coming years.

 

United Federal Credit Union projects Redmond has worked on:

 

 

“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 adviser 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.”

– Scott Winger, Director of Facilities
