The New River Valley Home Builders Association (NRVHBA) presented its Excellence in Building Awards at its summer awards event on Thursday, July 15.
Jeff Nosenzo with Brown Insurance Agency and President of the Association in 2020 and 2021, along with Justin Boyle, CFO of Green Valley Builders and Vice-President of the NRVHBA, announced the winners from among thirty-two nominees in eight different categories.
The nominees came from 14 different local businesses and/or individuals. Nominees were required to submit design plans, client letters of satisfaction, and before/after photography. The winners were chosen by their peers among the 125 members of the New River Valley Home Builders Association.
Among the Design Excellence Awards, Slate Creek Builders won the Best Kitchen category for the third year in a row, and Back to Nature Landscaping & Construction took home the Best Outdoor Living award for the fourth year in a row. Shelter Alternatives won the Best Bath category while White Builders and Setter Construction was awarded the Best Remodeled Home and Best New Home awards.
Jason Hardy of Carter Bank and Trust was awarded the 2020 Association Service Award for his board service and outstanding volunteer work throughout 2020. Brown Insurance Agency was recognized as the NRVHBA Associate Member of the Year, awarded each year to a non-Builder member of the NRVHBA for outstanding service and contributions to the industry and association.
Setter Construction was presented the Builder of the Year Award for building and operating with quality and integrity in mind, for its consideration of community impact when planning and building, and for having a high customer satisfaction rating.
“We are beyond thankful for the opportunity to be the winner of the 2020 Builder of the Year Award. May we build for a better tomorrow as we build a culture of craftsmanship,” said Wes Smith and Austin Hauslohner, co-owners of Setter Construction.
Jeff Nosenzo, 2021 NRVHBA President, said, “The NRVHBA could not be prouder of these outstanding businesses and for them to be a part of the association. Last year was likely the hardest for us all in some time; however, each of these winners fought through adversity and still provided top-notch products and services. It’s just a testament to the quality businesses they have built right here in the New River Valley.”
