(Centerville, OH – January 31, 2009) For the 14th consecutive year, Remodeling Designs, Inc., based in Centerville and a top remodeling firm in southwest Ohio, has won Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards for its distinguished work. This year the company earned two (2) Local CotY Awards and one (1) Regional CotY Award presented by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Remodeling Designs now has 35 Local and 12 Regional Awards to its credit.
NARI-member contractors across the country annually compete for CotY Awards. The Awards, presented in various project categories, are judged on creative problem-solving, functionality, innovation, craftsmanship, aesthetics, degree of challenge and entry presentation. Projects completed between July 1, 2007 and November 3, 2008 were eligible for 2009 CotYs.
In the Local competition, Remodeling Designs competed against fellow members of NARI’s Miami Valley chapter. The Local Awards were presented on January 29, 2009, at Miami Valley NARI’s Presidents Party held at the David H. Ponitz Center on the campus of Sinclair College.
Regionally, Remodeling Designs’ projects were judged against NARI members in Region 4, East Central, consisting of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky. Judging for Regional Awards took place in mid-January at NARI Headquarters near Chicago. Remodeling Designs’ Regional- winning project proceeds to National Award competition against entries from six other U.S. regions.
On March 28, 2009, Remodeling Designs and all other Regional Award winners will be honored at NARI’s Evening of Excellence ceremonies held at the Sheraton Atlanta in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. That same evening, the 2009 National CotY Awards will be announced. The staff of Remodeling Designs is optimistic about its National chances.
When announcing the Local Awards, Kim Fantaci, Executive Director of Miami Valley NARI, said, “CotY Awards reflect a high quality of work and superior craftsmanship.” Remodeling Designs’ Regional Award was accompanied by congratulations from Tracy Wright, NARI’s National Director of Special Projects, who stated, “We are honored to have you among our members who do such fine work. Receiving a Regional Award is a notable achievement and clearly speaks to your extraordinary remodeling talents.”
