Project Name: Qdoba Mexican Grill
Location: Milwaukee, WI
This contemporary building features a raised front that incorporates an exoskeletal structure where the steel members are exposed.
The project was a remodel of an existing building. The Redmond Company was involved early on, in the purchase process of this property. In order to come up with a plan that would make this a feasible purchase for the potential owner, Redmond was involved in extensive pre-planning. Redmond was able to create a design that utilized the existing building in order to save some costs making it evident to the client that this would be a financially feasible option.
This is the 11th project that The Redmond Company has done for this client.
Project Name: Palmer Bank
Location: Taylorville, IL
Palmer Bank selected The Redmond Company as its partner for the planning, design and construction of a new main office facility. Located on a high-traffic, signature intersection in Taylorville, IL, Palmer Bank sought a timeless design that would visually represent its strength and stability to the community. Redmond’s design team blended extensive detailing and profiling of the metal roof with a masonry faade to create an attractive prairie-style look. The 11,800 sf building features high-bay ceilings, earth-tone materials, a curtainwall entry system to allow daylight into the lobby, a geothermal heating/cooling system, and state of the art security systems. The signature metal roof design was also featured as a case-study in a national trade magazine for its innovative use and detailing.
Project Name: Midland States Bank
Location: Effingham, IL
Midland States Bank is the 44th fastest growing financial services company in America and the 23rd most efficient bank. Midland States Bank selected The Redmond Company to provide master planning, site selection and design services for its new four-story 80,000 sf building in Effingham, IL. The building is the headquarters for the bank’s administrative, operations and finance divisions. Redmond began working with Midland in 2008 as part of their strategic planning. The bank had hired a new management team in 2007 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.

Project Name: Bank Midwest
Location: Jackson, MN
Bank Midwest has a strong brand identity of being the “One Place” and creating “great experiences” for their customers. Redmond’s goal in designing this new 6,000 sf branch was to enhance their great experience brand by creating a truly unique and dynamically designed retail environment. This is accomplished by incorporating design elements that create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, including strategically placed lifestyle graphics and branded elements throughout.
At the heart of the floor plan, is a large free flowing, circular retail space which gives the customer uninhibited access to move about and peruse all of the bank’s products and services. A goal of Bank Midwest was to provide access and visibility to all three of their business lines – retail banking, insurance, and investments. This is accomplished by locating these services strategically in and around this central rotunda, allowing for great sight lines and increase opportunities for cross-selling of services. To further enhance the circular flow and reinforce the brand, the retail space is surrounded by a branded circular soffit. This creates visual interest and further invites customers to explore all that Bank Midwest has to offer. Several clerestories provide natural light to the interior space and help to create a sense of openness. Extras such as a full service coffee bar, internet cafe, and comfortable furniture entice customers to lounge and relax. A curved lifestyle graphic using images from the local farming community over the teller pod transaction area, and the warm color palette are designed to speak to the predominately agricultural demographic and reinforce the bank’s connection to the local community. Numerous graphic light walls and video screens draw the customer’s attention to key venues and kiosks throughout the retail space providing constant and consistent brand messaging. The balanced use of color, light, texture combined with a soft curve through the space all work in concert to reinforce Bank Midwest’s brand identity and promote a memorable and great experience for its customers.
The exterior was designed to complement the interior retail space, and reinforce Bank Midwest’s brand while creating a unique presence in the community. The curved metal roofing and natural materials, once again, speak to the rural agricultural demographic. In contrast, expansive glazed elements and tiered clearstories draw the outside in and enhance the overall visual impact of the structure. The large curved glass exterior wall along the main street allows passers-by to have expansive views of the dynamic retail space within, allowing the interior branding and marketing to be experienced from the exterior of the building as well. Strategically placed applied graphics on the exterior create added visual interest and reinforce the bank’s signature message of “Great Experience - One Place.”
The Redmond Company also completed a similar brand remodel for the branch in Windom, MN.
The Redmond company was selected to provide consulting, programming, planning, design and construction services. The scope of this project included temporary relocation of the existing branch operations, followed by demolition of the existing 10,000 sf building and construction of the new branch.
Project Name: Town & Country Bank
Location: Springfield, IL
Because of a recent re-branding effort, Town and Country selected The Redmond Company for design and construction services for an interior remodel of their existing Wabash branch in Springfield, IL. Town and Country’s new brand concept focuses around “making connections” with their customers and the community. The goal of the interior redesign was to use the existing Wabash branch as a springboard to showcase this new brand identity.
The tired and cavernous lobby was reduced to about half the size to create a more private and intimate environment. Additionally, brand re-enforcement was added in the form of color, texture and lifestyle graphics creating a more exciting and informative customer environment. As you enter the branch, a soft curved tile pattern addresses the logo wall and the transaction zone. This delivery method promotes customer interaction and reduces the feeling of a barrier. Additionally, a myriad of services can be performed at the transaction zone optimizing and personalizing the customer experience.
The lobby waiting area is open with soft lighting, plush lounge-style furniture, and patterned carpet promoting a comfortable “homey” atmosphere. A refreshment center and kids’ corner makes sure that every customer big and small feels welcomed.
When a more private consultation is required, traditional bank-style offices have been replaced with inviting connection rooms. These rooms have open living room-style seating, branded colors, and glass sidelights promoting private, positive, and personal customer interactions.
The trust offices area is securely tucked behind a set of glass and wood doors, once again promoting interaction yet enhancing the sense of privacy required by customers needing these services.
Additionally, all this was achieved with minimal demolition and construction compared to what is usually found in remodels of this scope and size. In turn, this optimization meant that, branch operations were maintained throughout the remodel process minimizing customer discomfort and reducing the need for costly construction phasing.

Project Name: Morton Community Bank
Location: East Peoria, IL
Morton Community Bank and its parent company Hometown Community Bancorp, was looking for a way to convey their commitment to the community. With East Peoria creating a new downtown area, it provided the perfect opportunity for Morton Community Bank to build a considerably-sized facility in a prominent location. While Morton Community Bank will continue to be headquartered in Morton, this East Peoria facility will become the Bank's center for commercial banking services.
Redmond developed an old-world design based on the European heritage of Morton Community Bank. The architecture, with its stone and brick facade, gives the building a sturdy and timeless presence, in turn, communicating and fortifying the long-standing connection Morton Community Bank has had with the community and their customers. A grand and stately 100-foot clock tower stands watch over the inviting courtyard plaza; both of which address the rotunda at the intersection of West Washington Street and Clock Tower Drive. The iconic clock tower echoes the themes of other Hometown Community Banks.
The combination of the plaza and its centralized location create the ideal spot for staging community events such as art shows and lectures. The main entry, on the parking side of the building, is emphasized by a smaller tower element which is connected, via a porte-cochere, to a row of covered parking spaces. This will provide comfortable access for customers during inclement weather. Other unique features such as, exterior balconies; segregated drive-up; and copper roofing work seamlessly together to create a visual impact that strengthens Morton Community Bank's brand.
This project is Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR.

Project Name: Bank Midwest
Location: Fairmont, MN
The Redmond Company has been selected for design and construction services this fully branded 11,000 square foot retail banking facility located in Fairmont, MN. Redmond designed this facility to have the same style and features as the prototype that Redmond recently completed for Bank Midwest in Jackson MN. The branch is designed to provide abundant natural light, and includes a large free-flowing, circular retail space that will feature a full service coffee bar, internet cafe, and comfortable furniture. Elements from the prototype will be incorporated to reinforce the bank’s brand of providing customers with a “great experience” and “one place” banking services.
