Popular Portland, Oregon based home design firm Alan Mascord Design Associates, Inc. (AMDA) are proud recipients of a major technology makeover sponsored by Autodesk and Lenovo. Comprising new state-of-the-art workstations, cutting-edge 3D design software and extensive training and support provided by Ideate, Inc. — the surprise makeover has enabled AMDA to immediately pass along the benefits to clients.
“We have always been at the forefront of innovation in technology as well as home design,” said Alan Mascord, president of AMDA. “It’s been difficult to keep the office up to date in this tough economy— we are really excited about the new services we can now offer our clients and are extremely grateful for this opportunity to redefine our capabilities. We were shocked but delighted.”
