“The competition for these awards is very fierce. I am both pleased and humbled at this show of peer recognition,” said TreHus owner David Amundson, left, at the acceptance of the COTY award for Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration in November of 2008. “I am very proud of our team of architects, interior designers and master carpenters. It’s their hard work, their thoughtful craftsmanship and passion for design as agents of beauty that continues to win awards, and, more importantly satisfy our clients.”
The TreHus COTY award winning architect is Meriwether Felt. She has decades of residential architectural experience and says she is especially proud of this Greek revival restoration entry.
TreHus was also awarded Honorable Mention for their Residential Interior Speciality entry.
Each year, Minnesota remodelers are recognized for remarkable local remodeling projects with the Contractor of the Year Award, commonly referred to as a COTY Award.
The COTY Awards were established more than a decade ago to foster a sense of achievement and pride among members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and to increase public awareness of NARI professionals. Remodeling companies large and small have said that winning a COTY is a key factor in enhancing their image within the industry and with prospective customers.
Entrants were judged by a panel of remodeling professionals handpicked by a NARI of Minnesota committee. All entries are judged on functionality, problem solving, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and entry presentation.
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is the only national not-for-profit association dedicated to solely promoting the remodeling industry.
