Schererville, Indiana, Tuesday, April 26, 2005 - Drummond Designs, a developer of architectural residential home plans, announced today the official opening of its first branch office in the Midwest. The industry's difficulty in responding to the growing demand for plan modification services, as well as pressing renovation needs in the Greater Chicago and Indiana areas, spurred the decision to open a full-service branch in the region.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago reported in a recent document that the Midwest region experienced a 29% growth in single-family home starts, compared to the national average of 14% from 1998-2003.
« With more than 60,000 single-family home starts in the Greater Chicago and Indiana areas in 2003 alone, the decision to have a physical presence in the region is quite likely one of the best we could have made at this time, » stated Yves Carignan, CEO of Drummond Designs. « We have noted a significant evolution in industry needs over the last few years, making this particular venture a unique business opportunity for a company with our expertise »
In opening this latest branch just southeast of Chicago, Drummond Designs hopes to directly contribute to more than 2,000 housing projects in Illinois and Indiana by 2010.
« Builders, contractors, designers and anyone turning to these various industry experts when initiating their search for a new home can derive benefit from Drummond Designs' unique one-stop-shop approach, » said Sylvain Chartier, Drummond Designs' Director for the Midwest region. « With hundreds of recent home plans to chose from, either on our web site or in the hundreds of magazines showcasing Drummond Designs' craft, it's easy to find what you're looking for and having your dream project customized to meet your exact needs. »
