Dallas Design Group Launches LEED Accredited Green Design Division
Elaine Williamson Designs announced it has launched a LEED AP Accredited residential and commercial interior design division in response to increasing marketplace demand for “green design solutions,” and also best service its rapidly escalating client base. This as the company recently announced it has secured five new home and business interior design contracts within the past month.
Elaine Williamson Designs’ new LEED AP Accredited residential and commercial interior design division is spearheaded by ASID Allied Member Joanna Jackson. As the division head, Jackson is charged with cultivating Elaine Williamson Designs’ “green project portfolio” relative to both new business development and client services. In addition to driving residential and commercial client acquisition initiatives, Joanna and her team also execute contracted eco-conscious interior design and re-design projects from start to finish, including defining project scope, space planning and layout conceptualization, and furnishing and materials procurement. LEED Team design coordinator Kathleen Boykin also oversees related vendor and contractor relations.
“We’ve been extremely blessed to continue our growth trajectory during tough economic times,” said Elaine Williamson, principal of Elaine Williamson Designs. “Bringing Joanna on board and concurrently establishing this new LEED AP Accredited interior design division is a direct reflection of where we are today, and how our company intends to grow, prosper, adapt and provide maximum value for our clients in the months and years ahead.”
The company’s new LEED division launches amid a flurry of sales activity at Elaine Williamson Designs, with five new contracts recently procured. A commercial project for North Texas Spine and Sport entails a complete re-design for a physician’s personal office and four patient rooms. This contract is a continuation of the company’s prior engagement with Texas Spine and Sport that is now complete, where Elaine Williamson Designs re-designed the medical office’s exterior façade, lobby and lounge areas. Combined, the 4 newly contracted home projects encompass nearly every residential space, including entry/foyer, office, bathroom, dining room, breakfast area, kitchen, sitting room, family room and formal living room. All five of Elaine Williamson Designs’ newly contracted projects were driven by satisfied client referrals.
“It means so much that the majority of our business is derived from client referrals,” Williamson said. “Have past clients enthusiastically and proactively spreading the word about our company and design work is extraordinarily gratifying and a reward unto itself.”
