ANDREW SCHROEDER RECEIVES 2 PRESITIOUS DESIGNATION FROM NARI
Fairfax, VA, April 2, 2018 — Schroeder Design/Build is pleased to announce that Andrew Schroeder, General Manager, recently received the prestigious Master Certified Remodeler (MCR) and the Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) designations from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).
An MCR designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, dedication to the industry, and community involvement. This program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills. The NARI certification program assesses the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in over 20 remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, planning and building site layout, and all trades skills required in remodeling your home. Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have attained the Certified Remodeler (CR) designation and maintained it current for a minimum of 10 years. The candidate must also have achieved at least one additional NARI Certification, and have served in a NARI chapter or a community leadership position.
A UDCP designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension and skill in principles attractive not only to those who wish to age-in-place but also families with special needs and families that are forward thinking. A UDCP proves knowledge in the seven principles of Universal Design, how to interview clients with an understanding and consideration of their special needs, and finally the how-to of building these projects.
“It’s an honor to receive these two designations from NARI. The focus and time to meet the requirements, reviews and testing was well worth it both personally and professionally. Throughout my career, I’ve made a conscious effort to continue my education within the remodeling industry to ensure that Schroeder Design/Build can offer the best design, customer service, and craftsmanship to our clients. The UDCP designation is particularly important in our industry today as homeowners are deciding to remodel their homes so that they can stay in them throughout their retirement. Understanding how to best meet the needs of these clients allows SDB to provide custom design solutions that will allow them to age-in-place in a functional and beautiful home environment,” said Andrew Schroeder, General Manager of Schroeder Design/Build.
