Merrimac offers a degree of knowledge and experience that other companies often imitate but find impossible to duplicate. We're committed to providing the highest level of customer service.

Ingrid Fraley, Interior Designs - Design Services
Ingrid Fraley, President of Design Services, Inc., has been active in the design of interior environments for over twenty-five years. With pride in the quality of our services, we have completed a significant number of commissions nationwide of varying sizes and levels of care, all yielding positive results for the owner. We do this with a true passion for working with environments for the elderly and with a cognizance of the relationships we establish with our clients. This combination results in design that not only meets the objectives of the building and budgetary programs, but is highly marketable and enfolds the resident in a intuitive sense of "home." We design solutions that are cost effective, appealing to the marketplace and provide a life-enriching environment that will serve residents now and in the future.
We have worked with various Architects over the years. We can certainly recommend one to you or work with one that you are familiar and comfortable with. We prefer to be in on the design phase of the project so that the building can be beautiful and operationally functional for its intended purpose - Senior Housing.
