Case Design Voted “Top Workplaces for 2014” in Washington DC

June 20, 2014. Posted by Case Design to Thoughts From the President

Here at Case Design, we are thrilled by the news that we were voted one of the best companies to work for in the Washington, DC area by The Washington Post. In the small company category, we came in at #76, which is fantastic given the sheer quantity of successful small businesses in the area. Additionally, we were the only remodeling firm to make the list.


What is even more exciting is that these rankings were based on employee feedback. How was the survey done? The Washington Post teamed up with WorkplaceDynamics, an employee survey firm, to administer questionnaires to 56,000 Washington-area employees, asking them how they view their job and how they view the health of their organization. The employers were then ranked within their size band based on employee responses to the survey. The rankings are thus true reflections of how employees feel about their workplaces.

Case Design was heralded for its vast array of employee benefits, dedication to community service, and for fostering long-lasting careers. Specifically, The Washington Post states that:

In business for more than 50 years, Case Design has seven people who have been with the company for more than 25 years and others who have been there more than 30 years. Employees stay for a full array of benefits including a 401(k), opportunities for flexible work schedules, working from home, and college scholarship program. The company fights homelessness by partnering with Friendship House and the Home Stretch organization. Employees also teamed up to build a home for a disabled veteran in Frederick.

We are truly thankful to be recognized as a top Washington workplace, and we are grateful for our colleagues who have put in years of service and made this a wonderful place to work. After all, the key to Case’s remarkable success is its talented and experienced employees.

Each year, Case Design presents scholarships to employees’ children who will be moving on to college. Shown with recent scholarship winners are Bruce Case – President, and Fred Case – Founder and CEO.

Case Team Gratefully Builds Home for Injured Marine

July 28, 2011. Posted by Case Design to Thoughts From the President

Down a long gravel driveway in Frederick, MD, smiles were mixed with tears. Against a backdrop of trees and a cloudless sky, the white tent and chairs almost mask the new home.

I believe one of the main reasons America is the greatest country in the land is because we take care of our own. Government has a role, but at the end of the day it is about one human being doing the right thing for another. Pay it forward. Do unto those as you would have done to you. That is why we jumped at the chance to build a home for Marine Sgt. Adam Kisielewksi and his family.

You Get What You Pay For – Especially When Your Hire a Home Remodeling Company

May 23, 2011. Posted by Case Design to Thoughts From the President

A large portion of our competition charges half of what we charge. That’s right – half. Ever bought something that you know is twice as expensive as you could get from someone else? If you’re like me, you don’t do that very often. The dollar is scarce – especially these days – and I want to be sure I am getting the highest value for my spend. But there are times; especially with larger/more risky investments, that you truly get what you pay for.

Genuine Customer Service Should be the Goal

May 5, 2011. Posted by Case Design to Thoughts From the President

Our Bethesda office and selection center sits atop a Safeway making it convenient to pick up that jug of milk or that snack for lunch. There is one aisle that is always full – and if you know this Safeway you know why. It’s because the cashier is the most amazing person you’ve ever met. She always smiles ear to ear. Makes conversation. Is quick and efficient. Beams energy and charisma.

Children Teach Us to Keep the Fun in Work

April 18, 2011. Posted by Case Design to Thoughts From the President

My wife was traveling on business for a couple of days so it was just my daughter and me. It’s always tricky balancing work and home but obviously the degree of difficulty went up significantly without my “better half.” In addition to being reminded of the level of respect I have for single parents (not to mention for my wife…), it was a wonderful time for my 8 year old daughter and I to enjoy one another.
