Innovation Alert! Mark Fies Gains Industry Insights at JCHS Remodeling Futures Conference

By November 16, 2017 November 21st, 2017 No Comments

As home renovation experts, we strive to innovate and continuously develop and deliver cutting edge products and design services to our clients. In order to do that, we need to be up-to-date on the latest and greatest industry trends and expertise. Although I usually get to have all the fun, last month, Mark got the opportunity to interact with other industry leaders by attending the 2017 Remodeling Futures Conference just outside of Boston in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was there that he received firsthand information on new research and industry trends and was able to share insights into what we’re experiencing here in our local market.

The Remodeling Futures Program is part of the Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) of Harvard University. This prestigious program studies the home improvement industry and the factors that affect how housing renovation is growing and changing. They research how economic and innovative trends impact the industry so they can better understand the relationship to the broader residential construction industry. The Steering Committee is made up of home improvement industry experts such as Houzz, Zillow, and Kohler, big-box retailers like Home Depot and Lowes, along with suppliers, manufacturers, industry analysts, associations, and a few remodelers from across the country. It was quite an honor for Mark to be invited to attend (you can check out the press release here).

What’s all this mean to you?

When we’re informed about the latest design and industry trends, we’re better able to serve you (which as you know, is all we care about)! Although we’re a Reston based company and we focus a lot of our energy in whole home renovations, kitchens, basements and home additions, we pride ourselves in our broader thinking and ability to keep up with national trends.

Actually, we were recently honored because of that thinking! Samsung and Professional Remodeler magazine awarded us with the 2017 Innovation in Remodeling Award at a national conference held in Philadelphia!

I’m so proud of our entire teams’ focus on innovation and I’m especially looking forward to Mark’s ongoing participation in this prestigious group. Way to go, Mark!
