ABOUT US

Over 33 Years of Excellence in Home Design and Remodeling

Glickman Design Build is a small firm specializing in residential construction with a focus on accessible design that comfortably accommodates clients’ day-to-day needs. The firm was founded in 1974 by Russ Glickman upon his graduation from The University of Maryland, College Park. Mr. Glickman’s passion for building, which began at the young age of 23, continues today and is reflected in his unwavering dedication to beauty and function in design, as well as a personal commitment to providing a high level of service to his clients.

Glickman Design Build has also been recognized with 65 endorsements and articles from well-respected national and local media including the Washington Post, Washington Business Journal, Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and Luxury Homes magazine.

Our team is made up of architects, interior designers, master carpenters, landscapers, masons, electricians, plumbers, and other highly-skilled and licensed contractors to ensure that every aspect of your project is properly taken care of.

This is Who We Help

We help families who are frustrated, annoyed or dissatisfied with their homes. They may have become fed up with cramped or dimly lit spaces or poor traffic flow. Sometimes there may be serious safety concerns. Often times involved families fear the home may not be working well now, or it may not work well in the future.

We have special expertise in helping elderly parents & growing children with mobility issues or physical disabilities. As the parent of a child with cerebral palsy who has lived at home since his premature birth 24 years ago, I developed a passion to serve the special needs community. Michael has used a wheelchair since age 4. I am passionate about helping anyone with mobility challenges by designing and remodeling homes that improve the quality of family life.

This Is How We Help Them

We listen a lot. We include owners and their trusted advisors as part of our team. We provide valuable information so clients can make informed decisions throughout the designing and building process.

We are particularly adept at solving complicated challenges. We handle the complete process from start to finish, including conceptual design, zoning, architectural plans, engineering, permit acquisition, building, project management and warranty work.

We know that integrity and trustworthiness are of utmost importance to our clients. Our goal is to exceed expectations at every opportunity.

Glickman Design Build’s expertise in, and reputation for, building beautiful and high-functioning homes in Washington, DC; Northern Virginia; Howard County; and Montgomery County, Maryland spans over 33 years. We are one of a small number of firms in the United States specializing in building and remodeling homes to make them user-friendly. Everything we do is custom planned and built for your current and future needs.

Sustainable designs include “green” features and planning that will reduce future waste and eliminate the need to “re-remodel” in the future should you plan to stay. We also have special expertise in design to accommodate special needs via Better Living Design, or universal design, and wheelchair-friendly accessible design, remodeling, and building.

Savvy owners consider changes needed in today’s design to maximize future resale value. Today’s homeowners understand the increasing demand for housing options needed to satisfy changing needs of the ever growing population of aging Baby Boomers. Glickman is one of a handful of builders with personal experience and the required certifications to maximize current aesthetics while providing for future needs, including resale value.

Here at Glickman Design Build, we understand the sensitive nature of remodeling your home and we strive to make your experience as stress-free and non-intrusive as possible. We know that when it comes to your home—your sanctuary—finding a professional who is trustworthy and capable is of utmost importance to you.
