connected for life

Enhancing the positioning of Winchester, VA’s most spectacular Life Plan Community as they go to market with a unique expansion project.

With more than 20 years of experience we can deliver the best product design.

Lasting partnership is a phrase we proudly associate with Shenandoah Valley Westminster-Canterbury (SVWC). Back in the early 90’s we helped develop a cottage program for their unique community. Since then we have remained closely tied to their team and were invited to help with their newest expansion, The Villas neighborhood, comprised of ten hybrid-apartment homes with a total of 97 residences. Our sales and marketing acumen, paired with the design prowess of our creative services team, is deepening this strategic relationship built for the future.

Tandem is a true team player. Always accessible and there when you need them, they’re part of our team. SVWC contracted Tandem to create new photography and video content, design and launch our new website, as well as serve as our key marketing partner as we expand our campus. Working with their advisors and creative services team has been a breath of fresh air. Very professional, pragmatic, and can relate to the day-to-day operations of a marketing team and willing to assist with anything needed.
