ADS Celebrates 25 Years of Successful Remodeling

 In About Advance Design, Home Remodeling Ideas

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.

A Great Night to Celebrate

By Christine Jurs, Vice President/Director of Communications Advance Design Studio Ltd.

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.

“This company has experienced many different growth phases over the past 25 years, the biggest jump coming when Christine joined me in 2002 laying the foundation to explode the business to a level that would have been very difficult on my own,” says Todd Jurs, Founder and President.  “Recognizing everyone who makes this company a success, not only for the benefit of themselves and their families, but especially for the clients we serve was the highlight of the night for me.”


Throughout the night, attendees enjoyed a video collage of client projects completed throughout the year, narrated by four wonderful clients Clarissa Pawlikowski (Hoffman Estates kitchen renovation), Ruth Kane (Elgin Kitchen Remodel), Susan Weber (Arlington Heights kitchen renovation), and Jenna Otwell (Glenview addition). Included were clips of Advance Design  team members commenting on their experiences over their years of working at Advance Design.

Over 25 years, Christine and Todd, along with the help of a number of committed staff members 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.
