And the Winner Is....


We would like to extend a huge congratulations to ACM Designs for winning the Members Choice Award 2018 at the CF Ontario Awards of Excellence.

ACM Designs received the most amount of votes out of 15 nominees across Ontario, each nominated for either Entrepreneur of the Year or CED Project of the Year. CFDCs across the province nominated organizations they felt were deserving. All nominees were combined into the category of Members Choice Award, which was then open for public voting, and our very own ACM Designs was the big winner!

Here is a snippet of the nomination for ACM Designs:

ACM Designs - a decorating and design firm for commercial, residential and cottage buildings with a focus on aging in place, was opened in 2014 by Andria Cowan. Their team is involved in creating the design and managing the installations from beginning to end. Her and her junior designer are two of only 60 certified aging in specialists across Canada, and the only ones in Haliburton.

ACM Designs demonstrates excellence through their strong sense of community, using local craftspeople in every single job and consistently recommending local businesses and services to everyone they meet. Andria is also passionate about fostering young professionals, the young junior designer she hired improved her skills so significantly she is now recognized as one of the rising stars in the Canadian design profession – recently winning a national award for her work. The benefits to the community range far and wide because of ACM Designs. Not only through providing employment, but also providing mentoring, expertise, donated services, etc.

Congratulations to Andria and her team, our community is lucky to have you!
