Advance Design Celebrates

25 Years of Successful Remodeling

2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of Todd Jurs launching the company that has ultimately become Advance Design Studio. On a Saturday night in February, nearly 70 guests made up of Advance Design staff and their spouses, as well as several top sub-contractors, vendors and ADS friends gathered at Pinecrest Golf Club in Huntley for a celebration that began with cocktails and dinner, and ended with merit awards, recognition for longstanding partners and employees, and a fun raffle where participants chose which gift they were vying for in the drawing.

25th Anniversary

During the evening, Todd Jurs shared the history of the company,  including the story of how he and Christine married in 2002, and subsequently transformed the 10 year old general contracting business into the full service Design and Construction company known for the past 15 years as Advance Design Studio, Ltd.During the evening, the team honored Phyllis Jurs, Todd’s mom, with the Dennis Jurs Memorial Award which debuted in 2009 shortly after his passing, to honor individuals who exemplify his father’s giving heart toward the company. Phyllis and Dennis Jurs gifted the building in Gilberts that has been home to the Advance Design Studio showroom since 2002.

Over 25 years, Christine and Todd, along with the help of a number of committed staff members over the years have grown the once small general contractor into one of the most successful Residential Design and Construction companies in the Northwest Suburbs of Illinois. Adept at producing kitchen renovations, bath remodels, fantastic basements, additions, and whole house renovations; Advance Design excels at providing clients exceptional project experiences through their Common Sense Remodeling process, while making clients’ home renovation dreams come true.
