BIA Bestows 2017 Building Excellence Awards & Spring Home Show Honors

$4,750 donated to RockSolid Community Teen Center


Vancouver, Wash – (August 18, 2017) –  Last evening the Building Industry Association of Clark County (BIA) recognized twelve (12) member companies with Building Excellence Awards for outstanding projects completed between July 2016 through June 2017.

Entries for the Building Excellence Awards are judged on quality craftsmanship, unique design features, company safety record, usage of BIA subcontractors & suppliers and completion of project on time and on budget.

“The Building Excellence Awards program is a great way for our organization to draw attention to the outstanding performance of our members across many different segments of the market, including new residential construction, remodeling and commercial building,” notes BIA President Aaron Marvin. “Landscaping and interior design services are also an integral part of creating the special places people call home. We had several companies take home awards for the first time, which is always terrific to see.”
