NARI Award goes to Chicagoland’s Airoom Architects & Builders

May 02, 2012

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) held its 2012 Evening of Excellence at the Gaylord Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas on April 21, and a Chicagoland remodeler came up big.

The Evening of Excellence is the industry’s premier remodeling event celebrating NARI‘s Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award winners.

In order to be eligible for the CotY, contractors must meet the following criteria:

  • Submitted projects must be an improvement or an addition to an existing structure, with the exception of the “Residential Exterior Specialty” category.
  • The project must have been completed between July 1, 2010 and November 30, 2011.
  • Companies must be a NARI member in good standing.

Preliminary judging took place in Des Plaines, Ill., in January, where regional winners were announced in each of the categories.

An expert panel of judges chose winners based on “before and after” photography and project descriptions, problem solving, aesthetics, functionality, degree of difficulty and innovation among other criteria.

The winner of the CotY Award for Best Residential Kitchen over $120,000 went to Lincolnwood’s own Airoom Architects & Builders.

The award-winning Chicago area builder and remodeling company won their CotY with a kitchen renovation for a 1950’s lakefront home. Airoom designed the kitchen to be more accommodating by creating two islands, replacing two large windows with French doors for easy access to the beach and appliances were integrated into the cabinets whenever possible.

Airoom Architects & Builders have been a Chicagoland presence for over 50 years. The family-owned business is renowned for their high quality remodeling and renovation work and has won numerous awards for their consistently creative body of work.

Congratulations Airoom Architects and Builders!
