Bernardon’s “model approach” joins top small businesses in Delaware

November 17, 2015

Bernardon is the proud recipient of the Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business award, presented by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.

For the last 17 years, the “Superstars in Business” program has recognized extraordinary small businesses statewide who demonstrate exceptional leadership, community involvement, and entrepreneurial spirit. The award is named in honor of Marvin S. Gilman, who was himself a distinguished small business leader in Delaware who directed one of the most respected homebuilding companies in the Wilmington area, the Gilman Development Company.

Eight businesses were recognized with Superstars awards and Awards of Excellence in this year’s program. The other 2015 “Superstars” were Back to Basics Learning Dynamics, Inc., SoDel Concepts, and the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay. The awards were presented at the Chamber’s annual Superstars in Business Awards Luncheon on November 10, 2015 at the Hotel duPont.

Bernardon was noted by the selection committee for its strong leadership, resilience in the face of challenges and conflicts, and an unwavering focus on their clients as the center of their business. As an architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture firm employing over 48 people, the firm prides itself on the unique specialties that each of the Principals and their design teams have developed. As a result of these specialties, the firm has accumulated a particularly varied portfolio across many diverse markets, including senior living, single-family and multifamily residential, higher education, healthcare, and more.

“It is a great recognition for the firm,” said Art Bernardon, who founded the firm in 1973. “We’ve seen tremendous change in this profession, and we’ve been very fortunate in our leadership team and our staff working collectively to get us where we are today.”
