Announcing Construction & Design Inc. will serve as 2019 Corporate Sponsor for John Palmer Art
Any business owner would tell you the most valuable investment they have ever made in their business is in the relationships they build and nurture. One relationship we hold dear is our renewed partnership with John Ross Palmer and his Houston Heights Art Gallery. We at Construction & Design, Inc. are proud to announce we have committed once again to supporting John’s work as their 2019 Corporate sponsor.
A friendship originally started over 30 years ago between our Owner, Terri Robinson and John is truly the foundation of this winning partnership. Palmer remarks, “I never expected my friendship with Terri to expand into a successful professional partnership… but thank goodness it did. I cannot wait to promote her business and innovative skill set in 2019.” The friendship turned business relationship after John’s sister coordinated an impromptu lunch between John and Terri. John had hit a road bump in the planning stage of his renovation and gallery addition and knowing Terri had a construction company, they wanted to see if CDI could help him work through the problems. The caveat was, Construction and Design’s primary business was commercial construction. Before the meal was even served, the two agreed they could find a way to build Houston’s best privately owned Art Gallery and Studio.
Construction & Design, Inc. had the honor of building the Gallery and Private Residence in 2008 out of a worn and poorly maintained 1930’s Heights Boulevard historic bungalow. In 2014, Palmer had us construct “The Chrysalis” building allowing work space for up and coming artists, The Escapists, he mentors through his Art Launch non-profit, and much needed display gallery space. When the opportunity knocked for us to partner in 2016 as John Palmer Art’s corporate sponsor, it was a no-brainer. John’s art and philanthropic work has touched many and coming off his 20th anniversary we felt the time was right time to partner, yet again.
Through John Palmer Art and our 2016 partnership, we gained new clients, leveraged high visibility and took great pleasure in watching John’s career explode as an artist and accomplished mentor. We have no doubt that 2019 and will be that much more successful and bring growth to both companies because of our mutual focus on exceptional quality and customer experience. Keep an eye out for future events and collaborations between Construction & Design, Inc and John Palmer Art this year!
