NARI of Greater Chicagoland Remodeling Excellence Awards
Each year, NARI of Greater Chicagoland confers Remodeling Excellence Awards to selected members at their annual awards ceremony.
The Remodeling Excellence Awards recognize members of NARI of Greater Chicagoland for various remodeling projects, both interior and exterior. Winners are chosen anonymously by an impartial panel of remodeling experts. To be considered, a company must be a member of NARI of Greater Chicagoland in good standing.
All projects submitted for judging must be an improvement or an addition to an existing structure in order to be considered. New construction projects are not eligible. In addition, competing projects must have been completed during a 14-month time period prior to the deadline and cannot have been submitted in prior NARI of Greater Chicagoland contests. An impartial panel of judges, who are considered experts within the industry and associated fields, select winners based on each entrant's "Before and After" photography and project description. Judging is based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.
We were honored to have so many friends, colleagues, and clients join us to christen our new office and celebrate our induction into the Remodeling Big50.
Burr Ridge, IL (May 4, 2016) – David Pollard and Russell Head, owners of Liv Companies, have been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. The Big50 awards will be presented at a gala dinner at the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala on Oct 25-27 in Kansas City, Mo. The 2016 Big50 winners are featured in the May issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 130,000 professional remodeling contractors, with longer profiles of the winners posted on the REMODELING website, remodelingmag.com.
Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.
The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, REMODELING editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. “Uniting the 2016 inductees are high standards and a determination to excel — taking the opportunity to build efficiencies into their systems and processes— ensuring that they are poised to meet their sales, production, and customer-service goals and continue to thrive,” according to REMODELING.
“We are very honored to receive this distinction,” says Mr. Pollard. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”
REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.
REMODELING, published by Hanley Wood, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. REMODELING has and continues to be the indispensable tool that remodelers cannot do without—delivering the business know-how, product and technical information that home improvement pros need to help make smart decisions that will shape their project success.
