• Remodeling Showcase Awards

    LANCASTER - The Building Industry Association of Lancaster County is proud to announce the winners of its 2019 Remodeling Showcase Awards, a prestigious program that bestows the highest honors in the local residential remodeling industry. The Awards were presented on April 3rd at a special reception and luncheon held at The Barn at Stoner Commons in Lancaster.
     
    The Association's Remodelers Council honored 15 winning projects from 9 companies, representing a total of over $2.5 million in local remodeling work and an array of tastes and styles. The dazzling before and after photos and stories of the winning projects are posted at www.biaremodelingshowcase.com.
     
    The Remodeling Showcase program recognizes excellence in design and construction of residential remodeling and rehabilitation projects by members of the BIA’s Remodelers Council. Entries are judged on workmanship/quality of construction, creativity, design, value and cost effectiveness, and sensitivity to design or intent, using a blind numeric scoring system. The six judges hailed from around the region and are building industry professionals.
     
    Each RSA project was entered and judged in one of 10 categories: Addition, Basement, Bathroom, Commercial, Energy Efficiency, Exterior, Interior, Kitchen, Outdoor Living, and Whole House Remodeling. Categories were further broken down into divisions according to price, allowing projects similar in scale to be judged together. No entry was given an Award just because it scored more points than any other project in its category or because it was the only entry in a particular category. Instead, each entry had to exceed a threshold of points to receive an Award.
