Congratulations to Jessica Rossow on her National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) achievement!

We are so proud of Interior Designer Jessica Rossow on her recent accomplishment of acquiring her National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ). This certification is recognized in the industry as a signal that the certification holder understands the codes in place to protect public health, safety, and welfare, they are a highly qualified individual, and they are able to meet industry standards. Each of these categories are sections on the NCIDQ Exam. To earn this certification, interior designers apply to take the NCIDQ Exam and wait for approval. After the designer is approved, they schedule and take the three sections of the exam. Congratulations Jessica on your accomplishment!

Q: What made you choose DC?

A: I chose DC because of the impact they have on the community. I want to use design as a way to positively influence lives and I feel like I can achieve that with DC.

Progress on Fort Financial HQ

We’re excited to see the progress for the new Fort Financial Headquarters and Branch on Lima Road. As construction continues to progress, the building is coming to life! The new Fort Financial Credit Union Headquarters will represent the high-tech and growing financial institution that they are. Fort Financial is committed to maintaining privacy with each transaction and making it easy to do business with them. The new space that will serve as the new Fort Wayne Headquarters, as well as a new flagship branch with a drive-thru will solidify these values and assist the staff in bringing these ideas to life. The new branch will house several designated rooms including private offices for staff, various collaborative and training spaces, and new amenities to strengthen the company culture.
