Design Your Monday, a Glastonbury, CT interior design studio, owned by CTmrg Board Member Jennifer Gaggion, received the “Best Specialty Project” award from CREW CT, a leading organization for senior-level executive women in Connecticut commercial real estate.
The CREW CT’s Annual Blue-Ribbon Awards Showcase was held on May 18 to honor excellence for Connecticut’s 2021 real estate accomplishments. The Best Specialty Project award category is reserved for the best reuse of an existing building for a purpose other than that for which it was originally built or designed.
Design Your Monday collaborated with Capital Studio Architects and Aldrich Construction to convert an existing 100,000 square foot warehouse in East Hartford into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for HORST Engineering.
“This project was a blank slate that needed to come to life,” Gaggion said. “Our design process was highly strategic and focused on driving the client’s business results as well as attracting top tier employment candidates. Winning this award shows that people appreciate the dedication and passion that went into this project.”
Gaggion noted that the award “signifies the importance of surrounding yourself with esteemed colleagues in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries who work together to achieve the same goal, and the value engaging clients, like Horst Engineering, bring to the project.” She said she loves working with professionals in commercial real estate, and “especially with top-notch clients like HORST Engineering, who value what we bring to the project.” Gaggion believes design is a strategic initiative that, when leveraged, has the power to drive measurable results.
