Do you remember the project we did on Independence Highway last year? It was a remodel featured on this blog with weekly updates. We entered the kitchen of this project in the highly competitive Contractor of the Year awards hosted by The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). Powell Construction was named 2010 Contractor of the Year for Kitchens $80,000 to $120,000 in the Northwest Region! We are honored to receive the award and extend our sincere gratitude to the Rose’s for providing a home with such great potential and for their valuable input along the way!
To be considered for the Contractor of the Year Award, a company must be a NARI member in good standing. NARI members represent an elite group from the approximately 8,100 companies throughout the United States. NARI is a professional association whose members voluntarily subscribe to a strict code of ethics.
Judging took place at NARI’s national headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois, in mid-January. An impartial panel of judges who are experts within the industry selected winners based on each entrant’s “before and after” photography and project description. Judging was based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and entry presentation.
