Timberlake Design/Build Finalist for SmartCEO’s 2014 Circle of Excellence Award

Timberlake Design/Build is proud to announce that our President, Dave Lunden, was a Finalist in SmartCEO’s 2014 Circle of Excellence program in the Construction category. The nominations recognize leaders in their field of business in the Baltimore area that are raising the bar in achievements and excellence.

This year’s finalists, including Timberlake Design/Build, collectively generated billions in annual revenue and employed over 6,100 individuals. The Circle of Excellence Awards program recognizes the region’s most accomplished CEOs for business excellence in 10 distinct categories. Companies are nominated from all size and industry categories, public or private. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects 30 finalists, from which 10 winners are chosen based on the quality of nominations submitted.

In recognition of our selection as a Finalist, Timberlake Design/Build would like to thank our customers for their trust and confidence in us. “Our skill at working as a team with homeowners, architects and other design professionals creates an individual approach to the entire process that we believe sets us apart,” said Dave Lunden during his interview with the SmartCEO nominating committee.

We think the editorial staff did a great job of capturing the spirit of our company.  From the headline “Customer Satisfaction.  Timberlake Design/Build nurtures long-term relationships with clients” to the fact that, as Dave Lunden said it, “We don’t want just happy clients, we want disciples.”

It’s been a great 12 years for our Design/Build team and we’re looking forward to many, many more!

Rooms With a View

Hais sunroom afterHard to believe, but it’s already August! It’s one of our favorite months, and even though it brings us closer to the imminent conclusion of summer, it’s got us thinking…

What do we love most about summertime? Bare feet, baseball, campfires, long days, sleeping porches, fireflies…our list could go on and on! And thinking about the spirit of the season brings to mind how fortunate we are to work on home design and remodeling projects in some really beautiful settings.

We wholeheartedly believe that just because you’re inside your home that shouldn’t preclude you from enjoying the light, natural beauty and tranquility that comes from bringing the outdoors, in. Creating fabulous indoor-outdoor spaces is something Timberlake Design/Build loves to do. And whether windows and doors are open or closed, we extend the beauty of your natural surroundings into your living space for year-round enjoyment.


What do you love most about summer? And how could you re-envision your space to enjoy more of it?
