Summers Heating Up!

Popcicles, New Materials, Oh My! 

What a busy summer it has been for us here at Vision Builders!  With tons of new projects coming in the door the Interior Design team has to make sure they stay on top of latest and greatest material trends. They do this by hosting representatives from different vendors in the office twice a week and allow them to show their newest materials and ideas.  This is very beneficial to the Interior Design team as being able to see these materials in person sparks ideas for many current projects that they may be working on. Whether it is a show and tell from the 3Form rep that includes the yummy and local King of Pops, or a “wear” test with on the newest and most durable Armstrong flooring products, this is a great learning exercise that keeps the Interior Designers on top of what new products our vendors are coming up with!


Launch of the newly re-designed Vision Builders and Design website.

It has been a long time coming, with a lot of hard work and strong vision, but VB is proud to announce to our clients and partners that we have launched the re-design of our website! Our current website has been online for many years and we decided it was about time our website was in alignment with who we are as a company – passionate, innovative, collaborative, and committed.

“We wanted to create a distinctive new look for our website that would accurately represent us as creatives, designers and pioneers in the foodservice industry and provide us with a portal where we could showcase our work and services to new and existing clients.” – Adrian Sutherland, Lead Graphic Designer of VB says.

Along with the launch of our new website, we have decided to become active via social media (blog, Facebook, Instagram, twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn). We want to connect with clients, partners, designers, and food enthusiasts around the world. How will we do this? We will do this by posting the latest design and food service trends, updates on projects we have been a part of, and also keep you up to date on what is going on in the VB office. See our links below and stay tuned for many exciting posts!


To celebrate our two remote workers coming to Charlotte for the week, we decided it was the perfect time for our whole team to get out of the office early and have some fun! We all went to Tyber Creek to play some games (corn hole, giant jinga, ping-pong, etc.) and have a few cold ones– you could call us a sporty, social bunch! Stay tuned for future VB outings!


Vision Builders is so excited to announce we have opened a new office in the booming town of Alexandria, Virginia! We believe this 2nd location will allow for growth and many more opportunities. Along with the new location and home for Keith Fennelly, we have hired a new employee to assist in projects that are closer to the area. Salma Aref is originally from Egypt, but has lived in Hawaii for most of her life. She has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies in Interior Design as well as a Doctorate in Architecture which included a semester of working abroad in Abu Dhabi. Her thesis focused on changing the perspective with which planners used to address the informal housing crisis around the world. When she’s not defending her computer against Revit errors, you’ll find her discovering obscure museums, restaurants, shops, movies, or concerts. She also enjoys painting, cooking, jewelry-making, and taking her dogs out on random adventures. We believe with the addition of the new office and new employee Vision Builders will continue to grow and expand as a company. We are so excited about the expansion and if you are in the Alexandria area, stop in and say Hi!
