Bernardon is pleased to announce the NCIDQ Certification of two Interior Designers at the firm. Laura Ireson and Christina Salvitti have completed the requirements of the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) and are now NCIDQ Certified Interior Designers.

NCIDQ Certification is the industry's recognized indicator of proficiency in interior design principles and a designer's commitment to the profession. Interior Designers who possess the NCIDQ Certification have distinguished themselves by demonstrating a specific set of core competencies, supported by verified work experience, and a college degree.

Laura Ireson, NCIDQ is a graduate of Philadelphia University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. As a member of the firm for five years, she has lent her design skills to Bernardon projects including Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union in Media, PA; Preston at Barclay Friends in West Chester, PA; and The Airdrie at Paoli Station in Paoli, PA. Laura is a member of the Interior Design Team in the firm’s West Chester office.

Christina Salvitti, NCIDQ is a graduate of Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. As a member of the firm for five years, she has lent her design skills to Bernardon projects including Clubhouse at the Hill at Whitemarsh in Lafayette Hill, PA; AVE Blue Bell in Blue Bell, PA; and the Clubhouse at Riverwalk Apartments in Conshohocken, PA. Christina is also a member of the firm's Interior Design Team in the West Chester office.

“I’m incredibly proud of Laura and Tina for earning their NCIDQ Certifications. The hard work they put forth in acquiring this certification is a true testament to their dedication to the Interior Design profession. Laura and Tina are invaluable members of our Interiors Team, and both have made significant contributions to the success of the firm and the services we provide to our clients. I’m confident that they will continue to succeed in their roles, and undoubtedly will see continued growth as NCIDQ-Certified designers.” -Derek Perini, IIDA, Senior Interior Designer.
